Ecolab Equipment Care and Green Turtle Americas Announce Exclusive Distribution Partnership

Company’s Equipment Care division becomes sole vendor and installer of Green Turtle’s Retroceptor™ and Microceptor™ in-kitchen wastewater treatment solutions

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Oct. 29, 2013 – Ecolab’s Equipment Care division and Green Turtle Americas have formed an exclusive distribution agreement to provide innovative in-kitchen wastewater treatment solutions to the U.S. restaurant and food service industry. Through the partnership, Green Turtle’s line of Retroceptor™ under-sink grease interceptors and Microceptor™ drain-line coffee ground interceptors will be sold and installed exclusively by Ecolab’s Equipment Care division.

“Ecolab customers appreciate innovative solutions that solve specific pain-points within their operations, and the in-kitchen wastewater treatment solutions we are offering with Green Turtle do just that,” said Mike Goede, vice president of Sales and Service, Ecolab Equipment Care. “This distribution partnership extends our product and service portfolio and will help food service establishments throughout the U.S. increase wastewater pre-treatment compliance and improve operational efficiency.”

Green Turtle’s certified Retroceptor grease interceptors have been engineered to efficiently treat greasy wastewater at the source, in the kitchen. Retroceptor systems eliminate drain-line blockages and help reduce the occurrence of sanitary sewer overflows. They deliver improved water quality to comply with local effluent regulations.

Microceptor drain-line coffee ground interceptors install easily under the sink to keep lines free from coffee ground build-up and help eliminate sink back-ups, preventing costly emergency plumber calls and drain-line maintenance.
