Welsh biosciences company Genesis Biosciences has won a major UK sustainability award for an innovative new cleaning product which uses microbe bacteria instead of traditional chemicals.

Genesis won the ‘Sustainability Product Innovation’ category at edie’s 2015 Sustainability Leaders Awards for its development of ‘Evogen’.

Evogen radically changes the way we think about cleaning.

Judges described Evogen as an extremely exciting and innovative product, with massive potential.

Primary Judge and Head of Programme at RSA Great Recovery Lucy Chamberlain said: “Evogen radically changes the way we think about cleaning; about the environment and about our responsibility to use a more effective, lower cost, ‘friendly’ alternative to chemical cleaners”.

Speaking after being presented with the company’s award in the ceremony in London, managing director John Clark said: “Winning this award is the culmination of extensive research into application-specific bacteria which has resulted in unrivalled results across a series of markets.

“The whole concept of the Evogen range is to provide the lowest environmental impact product to every cleaning solution. We have made giant strides in the facilities management, marine and waste water treatments markets and are extending the applications to many other sectors globally.

“This recognition is well deserved by the small and dedicated teams here in Cardiff and across the ocean in our Lawrenceville manufacturing facility and we were delighted to receive the honour”.

After a record-breaking year of entries, 88 finalists were whittled down to 14 separate winners, with categories ranging from Energy and Water Management through to Sustainable Supply Chains, Employee Engagement and Product Innovation

Partnerships in Global steel

On 28th, GE team headed by Mr. Keiran Coulton, President and CEO for the area of China from GE Power Conversion, visited WISCO, WISCO vice president Mr. Hu Wangming had warm reception. Both sides had exchanges on the topic of enhancing the cooperation and promoting the development of the joint venture.
Mr. Hu Wangming stated: GE has wise vision on paying high concern to China’s metallurgical industrial market. China’s steel growth has slowed down, but the total amount is still huge. Except Fangchenggang project, WISCO will not invest in capacity growth, it will put the capital into restructuring, energy conservation and emission reduction as well as safety production. WISCO has a goal to becoming an international first-class enterprise, which certainly needs the cooperation with the world first-class companies; WISCO has full confidence with GE’s technology and performance. We are pleased to see that GE will set up technical center in China, and we believe through the good platform of the joint venture, the cooperation between WISCO and GE will obtain great success in our industry and emerging fields.
Mr. Keiran Coulton stated: GE is delighted to see the achievements by the cooperation with WISCO. At present, the development of the joint venture company set up with WISCO is in good condition, which has increasing orders and there must be a larger development space. The global metallurgical market is not optimistic, but China is still the main driver of growth. GE decided to move the global technical center to China to provide better service to WISCO, and combine the outstanding technologies and experiences of the two companies in order to create larger success for the two sides.
