Sustainable surface disinfection - mikrozid® universal wipes green line now also available in maxi format


Norderstedt, 01. November 2023. mikrozid® universal wipes* green line are now also available in maxi format. The new format (23x25 cm) of the medical disinfection wipes is particularly suitable for material-friendly disinfecting of medium-sized surfaces. Like the innovative mikrozid® universal wipes* green line in the standard format, the wipe material of the maxi wipes is also completely free of plastic and produced in a climate-neutral way.

  • Now available: Medical ready-to-use disinfection wipes for medium-sized surfaces in maxi format, 100% plastic-free and produced in a climate-neutral way.
  • schülke supports clinics and care facilities in sustainable surface disinfection.

In contrast to conventional PET-based medical disinfecting wipes, the new maxi-wipes leave a carbon footprint reduced by up to 30% thanks to the innovative nonwoven with VEOCELTM** fibers. In addition, the optimized packaging with 90 wipes lowers plastic waste by 18% compared to the large-format premium version with 80 wipes. The 12.5% higher pallet utilization ensures sustainable transport and warehousing.

Special viscose fibers reduce environmental impact

For the wipe material of the mikrozid® universal wipes* green line maxi, schülke uses VEOCELTM fibers. The raw material wood, which forms the basis of the fibers, comes from controlled and sustainably managed forests and plantations. The high quality of the fibers with very good liquid distribution and excellent absorbency is achieved through a strictly applied manufacturing process with particularly low environmental impact, which allows the complete elimination of fossil-based synthetic fibers.

To protect people, the environment and the climate

With the mikrozid® universal wipes* green line products, schülke supports clinics and care facilities in achieving more sustainability in their daily routines. Especially where a high level of consumables cannot be avoided to protect patients from infections, the protection of the environment must have a high priority. This is where the company makes an important contribution with its mikrozid® universal wipes* green line. The new maxi format offers the perfect complement for sustainable surface disinfection. "Protecting people, the environment and the climate is our top priority," says Stefan Kukacka, CEO at schülke. "We are proud to also fulfill these goals with the mikrozid® universal wipes* green line maxi.“
