At ICC Sydney, providing our clients and event attendees with extraordinary experiences has always been paramount. To achieve this, our team of event professionals utilise resources and procedures put in place to ensure the safety of all who enter the venue. Amidst the current COVID-19 recovery, this is more important than ever. One of the many solutions implemented to ensure event attendee, organiser and team member safety is the use of eWater Systems throughout our culinary services. The advanced cleaning technology enables safe and hygienic food preparation for all ICC Sydney events and provides many other benefits for our business and the environment.
Since opening in late 2016, ICC Sydney’s kitchen has operated using the eWater system, an Australian owned company which supplies electrolysis units to generate sustainable and effective alternatives to harmful cleaning products. ICC Sydney’s kitchen employs this system to produce cleaning and sanitisation solutions that eradicate bacteria, used for hand washing, cleaning produce and wiping down hard surfaces.
As well as eliminating general microbials, eWater Disinfectant is a certified organic hard surface disinfectant which has been tested and approved by the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) as a hard surface disinfectant proven to kill the microbials that cause COVID-19. The wellbeing of our attendees and team members is of the utmost importance and following the COVID-19 pandemic, this discovery further consolidates ICC Sydney’s confidence in welcoming attendees back to the venue in the safest conditions as possible.
Although eWater is powerful enough to eradicate coronaviruses, including COVID-19, its chemical composition is very simple and consists of only two ingredients – tap water (H20) and high grade salt (NaCl). When the solution passes through the eWater System, its physical and chemical properties are altered which makes it a strong, yet natural, commercial grade disinfectant. Both ingredients are naturally biodegradable and can therefore pass through drain and sewage systems without causing harm.
The use of eWater Systems aligns with ICC Sydney’s dedication to sustainability as a core business practice. Not only is it B Corp registered and Australian Organic Certified, but proven to be faster and more effective at eliminating microbials than its harmful chemical alternatives. With an on-demand, on site generation system that provides unlimited supply, eWater Systems allows us to continue minimising our carbon footprint by reducing demand for packaged chemicals and single use plastic waste. Here at ICC Sydney, safety and sustainability are at the forefront of all that we do to provide extraordinary events for our attendees. The use of eWater Systems is just one of the many ways that we incorporate and deliver on these objectives. We are proud to utilise such a progressive technology and will continue implementing best in class techniques to safely and confidently welcome clients to our venue.
