Genesys™ Sustainable Technology

Introducing Genesys™, the first line of surgical drapes and waste bags developed with technology that enhances their ability to breakdown in landfills over time.**

What if you could change things for the better without changing a thing?

Ecolab’s innovative new Genesys™ line of surgical drapes and waste bags are as practical, effective and easy to use as our former line of products.

What makes these products exciting is the faster pace at which they break down to their primary organic matter in biologically active landfills over time, thanks to a special organic additive to the material.

The drapes function as they previously did to help reduce the risk of infection disease transmission, improve clinical outcomes, and protect healthcare workers in the clinical environment just like they always did. Now you can enjoy the added ‘plus’ of greater support for your facility's initiatives relating to environmental stewardship.***

ASTM Study Results

ASTM Standard D5511 laboratory tests show up to a 35% breakdown in 21 months: a breakthrough in breakdown technology***

***Genesys technology works by enhancing the breakdown of plastics in landfills. ASTM D5511 laboratory tests performed have shown up to 35% breakdown in 21 months for sterilized Genesys products and the show faster results than under actual landfill conditions. Rate of breakdown will vary by landfill. (It will be faster in wetter landfills than arid ones.)
