News for February. Eco-Genics have a had a fair old run in February with some very challenging jobs indeed. Paper, Plastic, Printing and Mould cleaning seems to be very active for us here at Eco-Genics. This has been a Record Breaking start to the year for Eco-Genics and it shows no sign of slowing down. By what I'm seeing on social media it does look as though Dry Ice Cleaning is on the up. This can only be good for us all and the industry as a whole.
The beginning of February was particular interesting with Eco-Genics acquiring a new client outwith our normal industry sectors. This is extremely exciting as it could prove to be a long-term contract that will benefit the client Nationwide and also open some new doors to the Dry Ice Cleaning Industry as a whole.  David Kay is attributed to bringing this new client on-board so my congrats goes to him as this is sure to put some fantastic foundations in place for him to grow and expand.

Scottish Business Honours 2014
Eco-Genics are delighted to post our most recent achievements.
On Thursday the 11th September, Eco-Genics was at the Prestigious Scottish Business Honours 2014 where the company was a finalist in 3 categories:-
The awards ceremony was a fabulously run event [Scottish Chamber Commerce] in an extremely beautiful venue [Prestonfield House, Edinburgh]. The event ceremony was a showcase of the best of Scottish Businesses.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Eco-Genics staff for their hard work and dedication and all our clients for their continued support and trust in Eco-Genics and its services.
Winning awards is recognition for all the hard work, as everyone knows in Business it is very hard to maintain consistency. This is testament to the quality we have been able to deliver quality again and again.

June 2014
MD'S Monthly report has skipped a month due to there not being enough hours in the day. June has seen Eco-Genics involved with various industries including RUBBER, PAPER, PLASTIC AND FOOD.
June has been very busy with Dry Ice Sales and enquiries on the up and with the cleaning side of the business as busy as ever. Staff have had some holidays which proved very awkward in a busy spell. This has prompted a look at staffing and to see how many extra members we may require.
Eco-Genics have had some very exciting new trials within in the paper and plastics industry which proved very successful. These trials are anticipated to give us a new slant on business approaches thus opening some new doors and exciting opportunities with current customers and new potential clients.
Media coverage of Eco-Genics in the local region has been fantastic and very positive thus providing some very good exposure to the local community.
Other Exciting News: Eco-Genics new venture in the N.E of Scotland has been very positive with new possibilities coming to the fore. DIB Aberdeen trading as Eco-Genics have secured some premises, the premises are situated 1hr South of Aberdeen and 1hr North of Dundee in Montrose, the location was chosen because it has good access to the A90 North and South.
Eco-Genics are also looking at Dry Ice Production Possibilities sooner rather than later, watch this space.
Eco-Genics designed Dry Ice Blasting unit has the first prototype in production with live trials taking place over the coming weeks. The design looks good the components and delivery look even better. Everyone at Eco-Genics are keen to see the results and more over the performance. The design is radically different to anything on the market currently. To find out more Click Here 
Of all the dates on the calendar the 4th July 2014 is not a holiday as in America but instead the date when a 40ft Container arrives at our Dry Ice Production Facility. The container contains 76 brand new Dry Ice Containers. This is a massive boost for Eco-Genics even though it was a very large capital expenditure outlay,  One that is so important to enhance and increase Eco-Genics capabilities. This addition to our infrastructure will allow Eco-Genics to proactively increase dry ice sales further.

New Monthly M.D'S Report
" April saw high demand for extrusion and print press cleaning. Power generation is also on the up with various projects being discussed. The new hub in the North East of Scotland is doing well with some very interesting developments on the horizon.
April also saw massive increase in demand from all our contracted companies, this is fabulous news and a sign that the economy is on an upward trend. Enquiries coming in from all over the world as well, even some that we may take on.
Publicity has been very good after our awards achievements so looking forward to see what opportunities present themselves from that and if we can give something back. Excellent for the area. I will post the media coverage online when its available.
April was also very interesting when a trial was cancelled in a very important industry for all Dry Ice Blasting companies. The door was nearly closed when a competing company whom I will remain anonymous, managed to damaged a very expensive piece of equipment in what can only be described as utter incompetence. Customer even deemed the process unsuitable. Anyway we I managed to recover the situation by getting the decision overturned. Our trial was successful and the process has now been approved to go to the next stage before hopefully being implemented. Turning any negative into a positive is always a bonus.
One shut down was cancelled and scheduled again in July so that allowed us to get on top of all the maintenance in house. Always very concerned about ensuring our customers are looked after, now and again its good to be able to perform a sort of shutdown period for ourselves.
Finalised the new blasting unit design on the last day of April and its now gone to the build stage. Looks the business on the outside, cannot wait to get the unit and see what the performance is like. Excited to see if all the hard work and knowledge will come good. I have every confidence that we have come up with a concept and delivery design that is unlike any other. Keep everyone posted." Eddie Black
More to come so please keep a look out

4th April 2014
On Behalf of Myself and Eco-Genics I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone concerned for their hard work and loyal dedication. The success and achievements are testament to each and every member of the team. Eco-Genics prides itself on quality of product and services, customer satisfaction and a reliable service. Maintaining all 3 qualities in any business is difficult so it is important to have a good team behind you and that is what Eco-Genics is a team and an excellent team at that.
Dry Ice Blasting was a very difficult service to sell in the early days for a number of reasons.
  1. Poor Level of Service
  2. Value for Money and extortionate Pricing
  3. Poor equipment combination choices
  4. Poor knowledge
  5. No forward thinking

Eco-Genics is a company that has changed opinions and restored faith to many of our most loyal customers. We provide a service that is Value for Money, Professional and Reliable. At Eco-Genics we listen to what a customer/client requires and then delivers. We are always adapting, Learning and improving. Our motto is: "we don't do problems only solutions."

Eco-Genics is a prime example of humble beginnings but with massive desire and ambition to become the best supplier in a very niche industry and that's exactly what Dry Ice Blast Cleaning is. The awards and the testimonials we receive from our customers that come back time after time is a result that we are doing something right.
There are many different applications and Industries to serve but to be at the cutting edge is very important and it so important for Eco-Genics to maintain its position in the market and that is at the forefront. Eco-Genics set the standards, but standards are only a platform to build of because any standard can be bettered and that's the difference between good an excellent. Everyone concerned at Eco-Genics is trying to achieve excellence.
Special thank-you to: Grant Smith (Armstrong and Watson), Amanda Hanna and Gordon Mann (D+G Chambers of Commerce), Beverley Bamford (CX Project), All The Judges, Angus Robertson (Business Gateway), Joe McCardle (Scottish Enterprise), Jim Patterson (DuPont my Entrepreneur Nominator) and all my clients who have put us where we are.

First Dry Ice news of 2014.

What a start to the year, was thinking that we would start off slow but its been manic and I mean good manic. Christmas was absolutely frantic but we got through all our shutdown projects successfully on budget and on time. Congrats to all.

New business looks promising with several high profile surveys and meetings. Outlook looks very good indeed. Lots of work done with possibilities seem to becoming to a head thus giving Eco-Genics an excellent platform to build on for the year ahead.

Our ever loyal customers are looking to expand there requirements with us which is a very positive thing for all concerned and goes to show if you provide a high standard of safe, reliable and efficient service then there is room for growth.

The opening of our new premises and hub in the NE Scotland is in its final stages. Our new office will be run by a very exciting and forward thinking young man by the name of David Kay. Several meetings with local enterprises have shown a that there is a great need for high quality services and David is very keen to explore these. David is the successful selection from a long line of candidates and just so happens that the first region to benefit will be the Scottish East Coast. Its exciting times for us all. Eco-Genics expansion into other regions on a local level will ensure that the main hub and core of the business will not suffer, thus ensuring that we keep up the excellent services already provided and also that we support our other hubs. It is important for Eco-Genics to supply the right mentality when it comes to this industry

Eco-Genics knowledge of different industries and processes has grown and grown. Our understanding of a clients requirements is our biggest asset and we will continue to try and understand and assist our clients to realise the goals.

The vibe and atmosphere I have to say has never been more positive. Its a great feeling and we look forward to translating that positivity into results. Really looking forward to 2014 and all the projects and challenges that are posed. We will try our utmost to provide a solution for them all.

March 2012
Eco-Genics were presented with a very extensive challenge by DuPont Teijin Films, the remit for the works were as Follows;
  1. Remove all inner Fixtures, Equipment and Components from Cooling Zone One
  2. Dry Ice Blast Clean all 22 Plenums inner and outer casings
  3. Dry Ice Blast Clean all of the fittings, Equipment and Components 
  4. Enter Upper level of the oven and Dry Ice Clean the fan housings, Fan and all associated enclosed Ducting Chambers
  5. Enter the middle level Dry Ice Blast Clean all outer Ducting Casings and and Back Flow walls and Ceiling Areas
  6. Enter The Lower Level Dry Ice Blast Clean all Walls, Ceilings, Doors and Stenter Chain Outer Casing
  7. Re-Assemble all Equipment, Fittings 
The Dry Ice Cleaning requirements were extensive and the timescales were tight. The clean is a first of its kind attempted and succeeded anywhere in the world. DuPont were trusting our expertise and advice as the production downtime and planning was extremely tight. The works described had many different challenges both logistically and access wise. The ducting's and chambers were a network, which had to be manually navigated to ensure that no surface was missed. Timescale was extremely tight to complete the clean with over 1000 square meters of surface area to be cleaned. The outside teams cleaning all the parts and fittings from the cleaning had to ensure as soon as the inner oven was cleaned that we could start assembling the already clean fittings and parts, this was done whilst the remaining oven Fittings and fixtures were cleaned to completion.
This was a project that was ear marked a number of years ago, it was trialed without success on a very small area. The project was then mothballed because the standard couldn't be achieved. It took Eco-Genics to reignite the project and convince our client that not only was it achievable with good planning and communication, that the standard of clean that would be acheived would be as new. The Project was hailed as a great success.
The Project took 13 days and from start to finish, coming in 1 day ahead of schedule and on budget. The standard of the clean is proudly displayed in our case study folder in our office along with the Commendation from the Overall Site Engineering Manager. It was described by our client as simply FIRST CLASS.


January 2013

The success of the clean in March 2013 of the line D53 gave our client the confidence to look at another line on the Plant. D52 with the same Cooling Zone causing the some problems. We were again asked to come up with a solution to the problem and because the 2 ovens are different meant different challenges. The product staining was different from the first one and the oven was also further into the factory. Liaising with our site contact a solution was agreed and we set to work. The remit was a mirror image of the one above without the upper level cleaning.
Not to repeat what has already been said the project went to plan and was on time and on budget again. The success was another massive achievement. The track Record of the cleans is something that will great benefits to our clients and the quality of there product. We are reducing their risk of the potential for cross contamination of what is high grade products.

Dry Ice and Dry Ice Blast Cleaning Services in Scotland needs to be served better. The logistics to the North East of Scotland and Highlands is always a concern. Eco-Genics is looking to invest in the next few months in a couple of smaller hubs based near Aberdeen and Dundee, and also in Inverness-shire. These hubs will enhance our service. The decision has been made to locate local managers in Scotland to ensure Scotland is better served with high quality dry ice services.
Currently Eco-Genics enjoys reasonable amount of return work in the NE Scotland and Highlands and by working in the areas we know we are only scratching the surface for possibilities. Many Blue Chip Clients we already provide our services to have asked us to open local offices/Hubs to enable us to fulfil there requirements on a more regular basis. They are also well aware that we can offer increased support and knowledge on a local basis. Eco-Genics until now has always let our customers from the North of Scotland contact us but we now want to start actively pursuing future possibilities. The reason we haven't pursued the North OF Scotland is the lack of support and reliability from our suppliers in regards to deliveries, Because we now produce our own Dry Ice and do not rely on outside sources we can control and ensure that we can provide a reliable and cost efficient service.
Eco-Genics want to share its professional capabilities.

Eco-Genics will be opening a fully equipped response hub in the North East of Scotland very soon.

It is generally accepted that French chemist, Thilorier was the first to record the appearance of solid CO2 - dry ice. In 1835 he opened a cylinder with a large amount of liquid carbon dioxide to observe it in liquid form. Enough of it evaporated to leave a solid dry ice block at the bottom of the container.

For the next 60 years it was observed in university labs but not used for any practical applications. Even today anyone can take a metal cylinder of liquid CO2 (like a CO2 fire extinguisher) open the valve and observe the escaping gas cloud with part of it turning into dry ice snow flakes.

In 1897 a patent was granted in England to Herbert Samuel Elworthy, a doctor in the British Army Medical Corps for solidification of carbon dioxide. His purpose was to make soda water to mix with his whisky. Liquid CO2 worked fine but the metal cylinder bottles were too heavy to take on excursions. A 100 pound cylinder carried only 50 pounds of CO2. He preferred to make solid dry ice for his soda water. Unfortunately the dry ice didn't last long as it sublimated into gas before it could all be used. Thereafter, few used dry ice for this patented purpose. From time to time a few doctors used dry ice to remove warts.

The first commercial use for dry ice in the United States started in 1925 by Prest Air Devices, a company formed in Long Island City, New York in 1923. Prest Air Devices made the first CO2 fire extinguisher and tried many other uses for compressed CO2 such as a tire pump, powering grease guns and making soda water in the home. Only the fire extinguisher worked well enough to successfully market. Prest Air Devices made solid dry ice for demonstration purposes, and in 1924 that they tried to sell dry ice to the railroad companies to use for cooling in place of ice. Dry ice has twice the cooling power as water ice so it would be a far more efficient. Based upon the potential rail road business a dry ice production plant was constructed in 1925. The successful Prest Air Devices were sold off and the company was incorporated as Dry Ice Corporation of America, who trademarked the name Dry Ice. They tried to patient dry ice again, but were successfully challenged and turned down by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The first test of dry ice for railroad cars by Dry Ice Corporation was successful and by 1932 there were twelve cars insulated properly to handle dry ice. There were also about eighty cars built with mechanical refrigeration using a silica gel, and 180,000 railroad cars designed to use regular ice for refrigerated goods. The railroads invested and sometimes owned many water ice plants on their property. Unfortunately for the early dry ice producers, mechanical refrigeration won out for the railroad car business, but some railroad cars today in 2004 still use regular water ice to cool carrots shipped from California.

In the beginning of 1925 Dry Ice Corporation of America was producing dry ice without any customers. Their first customer in 1926 was Schraff's Stores - a confectionary store that sold Eskimo Pie ice cream as well as other items. Schraff's were experimenting with packaging to keep the ice-cream cold so a customer could eat it at home instead of at the store. Dry ice was the solution. Before dry ice, salt was added to water and then frozen. This colder "brine ice" would keep ice cream frozen as it was distributed to the retail stores. The melting brine ice was corrosive, wet and heavy. Dry ice became the ideal solution and by 1927 many ice cream manufacturers including Breyers Ice Cream were using Dry Ice Corporation of America's to ship and store their ice cream.

Dry Ice Corporation of America teamed up with Liquid Carbonic in 1929 to build 17 dry ice manufacturing plants across the US including Los Angeles, California. Before the plants were finished Dry Ice Corporation and Liquid Carbonic dissolved their agreement and went their separate ways becoming competitors. Birdseye Frozen Foods started in 1931 and immediately used dry ice for transporting their samples to promote their products. By 1932 with six or seven other manufacturers of dry ice, the estimated US production was 120,000,000 pounds.

Today there are thousand of dry ice producers all around the world. Many sell to the public, but many also manufacture dry ice for their own use such as Disney Land.

Clean Simple 250kg Dry Ice Containers

27th August 2013

Eco-Genics ramps up production of 3mm Dry Ice Pellets. The feedback we are receiving from our clients is very positive. Most pleasing is the high quality consistency of the Dry Ice

Like one customer said: 
"The quality and quantity of our dry ice blasting work has increased, and yet the quantity of our ice consumption has dropped".

I have to agree with that whole statement. Better quality product increases the efficiency of the cleaning, efficiency of the Dry Ice Blasting units and the big one the quality of the cleaning service. The decision to provide 250kg Dry Ice container size quantities are proving very popular with my staff and also with clients, 250kg is just about perfect for one blasting unit running 6-8hr shifts and 2x 250kg for is excellent for 10-12hr shifts. the benefits are less wastage.

Company Statement and Important Information:
Since launching the Eco-Genics franchise it has come to our attention via our clients and other industry sources that there are individuals/companies professing to be working for and behalf of Eco-Genics. We can categorically state that there is no company at this time or any other time sub contracting or indeed entitled to work under the Eco-Genics name. 
Successful companies like Eco-Genics will always have the threat of bogus copycats so to avoid any confusion please follow this Genuine Advice:
  • Avoid fraudsters by asking for proof of identification
  • Ask for proof of experience i.e. Testimonials/Reference
  • Ask for Risk Assessments and Method Statements
  • Ask what their resource capabilities are
  • As rule of thumb use the above to ensure you get a reputable company or person to supply dry ice cleaning services each and every time 
Eco-Genics welcomes genuine healthy competition as it keeps everyone on their toes. What Eco-Genics does not welcome is want to be copycats that have the potential to smear the industry as a whole with poor services and poor advice.

Eco-Genics Complete full Cosmetic Restoration of 1954 Perkins Industrial Dough Maker
Eco-Genics team success continues with the rejuvenation of a 1954 dough making machine.
Eco-Genics took on the whole project on behalf of our clients, works including Off Site Blasting and Powder Coating of all guards including sand casings and regular machinery guards. the rest of the facelift was done on site with services such as 316 Stainless cladding of the structure and blasting and repaint work of all fixed mechanical casings.
The work was requested so the 59yr old dough machine would not look out of place with a new multi million pound dough production line that's being fitted by the customer. Although the new line is state of the art, the old machine is still the main feed and is need to look and last the test of time.
Well done to the team involved
Pictures of the completed dough machine will replace these words soon so watch out.
Industrial Facelifts, always looking to increase the services and Eco-Genics repertoire. CONTACT US NOW FOR YOUR RESORATION WORK

Eco-Genics have developed a new product the AAIB System (Aggressive Abrasive Ice-Blasting). We have completed the development stages and the process is now ready to be added to our ever increasing services. The process simply works by adding a small amount of additive into the Dry Ice Flow.
The process is extremely effective and can achieve the same results as traditional methods but with minimum waste. Our primary service is and always will be Dry Ice Blast Cleaning however a number of our clients have had requirements for an abrasive blasting service, As trusted service contractors Eco-Genics were requested to fulfill this need on behalf of our clients however initially it was not a service area that Eco-Genics was willing to explore as it was always felt that it would conflict with our whole ethos of waste reduction. 
Not wanting to let our clients down it was decided that we would develop an additional process but instead of going down the traditional abrasive blasting routes we would develop an abrasive blasting solution that did not generate anywhere near the amount of secondary waste that traditional methods of blasting produce.

For further information please click here and proceed to fill in the form ticking the AAIB service tag.
