About Us - EcoWorks

EcoWorks Biotech (a private limited company) provides safe and biodegradable solutions for wastewater treatment and odour control to residences, commercial establishments and municipal entities.

Our state-of-the-art technology treats wastewater from kitchens, showers, toilets, and urinals by harnessing the power of beneficial micro-organisms.

Using a natural process known as bioremediation, our products convert waste oils, fats and grease (OFG) into harmless carbon dioxide and water. This water can then be collected and reused for non-potable purposes such as flushing and gardening.

We also offer cost-effective cleaning and odour control solutions that eliminate unpleasant odours from blocked drains, bathrooms, urinals, garbage areas and pets.

EcoWorks Biotech is now launching in India to bring high-quality solutions that are reliable, effective and profitable for all. We have the exclusive rights to market & sell Environmental Biotech products and solutions. Internationally, we have over 10,000 clients spread across 9 countries.

Leading names such as McDonald’s and Costa Coffee use our grease eradication system at all their 24-hour restaurants and coffee chains in the UK.

Testimonials

  • Got this product a few weeks back and it completely rocks. I have two adorable dogs and a little baby at home and UrineFree has been super useful especially since it is chemical free and safe to use

    Bikram Sandhu

  • Your product is a big boon for us. It does exactly what it claims it will do - removes urine odour completely in an all-natural way making it a safe and extremely effective disinfectant and deodoriser. Our 10 doggies thank you from the bottom of their hearts as they are not scolded as much as before for peeing in their sleep or for the occasional territorial markings inside the house! :) Once I deplete my stock, will be back for more!

    Fanny Nathaniel

  • The Flow Fresh dispensers were installed in our washrooms and I could feel the difference. Thanks for being my saviour :)

    - Manish Pratik, Director, Eastbound

  • Following the introduction of the OFG programme into our stores nationally, we have seen a significant reduction in OFG related maintenance issues and call-outs. Prior to installation, this was a constant problem for us to deal with.

    Eddie Ostrowski, Head of Facilities Management, ASDA Supermarkets (UK)

  • We are absolutely delighted with the results we have achieved. Prior to installation, pump stations were breaking down on a near weekly basis, resulting in exorbitant call out charges. The results were so impressive that Anglian Water has introduced the system into other sites around the UK.

    Gary Collins, Anglian Water Collection Manager (UK)

  • We don’t normally recommend a system but, in terms of meeting requirement, this is the first time such a system [GES] has been approved in Australia.

    Colin Judge, Spokespoerson for Sydney Water (Australia)

  • "In January 2008, Whitbread PLC converted 5500 Premier Inn former smoking rooms to non-smoking rooms over a 24 hour period, using ‘Vaporize ™’ To date we have suffered no invocations due to lingering smoke odours.”

    Maintenance Manager, Premier Inn (UK)

  • "We love Vaporize™– the smoke and odor eliminator, I would definitely recommend this valuable solution for anyone in the hotel industry, it really works.”

    Stuart R. Newmark, Senior VP & GM, Grand Bohemian Hotel, Orlando (USA)
