CHOISY’s exclusive technologies

« At the very heart of the development, production, and marketing processes: CHOISY’s ENVIRO-TECHNIK. »


From its founding in 1946, Choisy Laboratories Ltd. has applied “Chemistry and biotechnology serving sanitation for a clean environment”. Choisy products have acquired a reputation for superior quality because they have always met their user’s needs and contributed to the protection of the environment by their respective usage or compositon, according to availability and scientific constraints.

There have always been charlatans who have tried to appropriate knowledge or the sciences strictly for commercial opportunism; today, while our society is more demanding in environmental matters, this type of charlatanism still exists.
To continue to set itself apart from the adventurers who attempt to profit from the professional hygiene industry, Choisy Laboratories Ltd. proclaims, in a responsible manner, its Enviro-Technik approach.

Choisy’s Enviro-Technik is the maximum utilization of the scientific technologies to formulate and manufacture environmentally safer products.

Choisy’s Enviro-Technik is also the assurance that all the technical and scientific means available have contributed to meet the market’s needs in terms of effectiveness, quality and ecology.

Enviro-Technik is therefore a serious, professional and responsible step in the process of developing, producing and marketing Choisy products.

Without minimizing the effectiveness or the environmental qualities of Choisy products which will undergo this process within a reasonable delay, it is in the preceding perspective that we pledge to use our exclusive Enviro-Technik seal.

A: The Aquaforce™ washing solution | B: Traditional chemistry solution

Automatic dishwasher and laundry washing machine

Highly concentrated products. Usage concentration is very low resulting in minimal costs per use. Highly concentrated formulas considerably reduce the amount of input resources required and the amount of waste generated by containers / packaging.
Products are dosed automatically. The use of an automatic proportioning system is advantageous as it produces consistent dilutions and reduces wasting, thereby yielding better control over costs.
Highly effective anti-redeposition properties. This technology prevents grime and soils from resettling onto clothing and dishes. It also prevents limescale accumulations within washing machines and dishwashers. Costs are reduced by eliminating the servicing (descaling) of the interior of washing machines and by prolonging the lifecycle of mechanical components within the machines.
Phosphate-free. Phosphates are responsible for excessive aquatic plant growth, algae and cyanobacteria in our lakes. Using phosphate-free products contributes to reducing lake eutrophication. Third party test results obtained confirm and demonstrate that these products are phosphate-free. Furthermore, they exceed the requirements established by the Concentration of Phosphorus.
EDTA and NTA-free. Technology composed of eco-friendly chelating & dispersing agents that support and favour the action of water without disturbing the fragile balance of ecosystems when reintroduced into the local aquifer. EDTA and NTA are bioaccumulable chelating agents responsible for concentrating heavy metals into the environment. Using a product without bioaccumulable content is a necessary criterion to prevent the contamination of the food chain. Furthermore, NTA is classified as a potential carcinogen. The anti-scaling agents used in these products are readily biodegradable in accordance with OECD testing, series 301 (A to F) and are harmless to the end users.
Ozone-friendly. Both of these product lines are completely harmless to the ozone layer. Most of these products do not contain & release VOC’s.
CMR-free. All of these products do not contain any known carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic substances.
Readily biodegradable organic substances. The organic compounds found in these products are readily biodegradable in accordance with OECD testing, series 301 (A to F). Using readily biodegradable organic substances prevents the accumulation of harmful substances in the environment.
Respectful of natural habitats. The composition of these products has a reduced toxicity impact on invertebrates, green algae and bacteria in accordance with Environment Canada’s biological testing methods SPE 1/RM.
