Microbes take away the pong


PORTABLE toilet supplier Satellite Industries claims to have transformed one of the most hazardous jobs in the hire sector, with a waste tank cleaning product in a sachet.

BioScents is a microbial cleaner that performs the deodorising, dissolving and cleaning tasks of liquid cleaner without the health and safety risks.

According to Satellite, the sachets, which last seven days per toilet, will also avoid the environmental risks of using large quantities of bleaches or other chemical cleaners.

At the same time, using a single dry additive to clean the waste tank will reduce labour time and cost, the firm says.
