Premium Purity™

Cruise industry

“Elevate guest and crew experience in a sustainable way”. That is our value proposition to the market.

Thus, we have copied nature’s own disinfection methods and created an effective and sustainable disinfection solution combined with scientific verification. We call this Premium Purity™.

Once Premium Purity™ is implemented in all areas of a vessel the coating actively decomposes bacteria, viruses, and harmful volatile organic compounds creating a healthier indoor environment with supreme air quality for guests and crew alike.

Once coated, daily cleaning of surfaces is performed with an effective liquid ‘produced on-site by using only water and salt. This cleaning system significantly reduces the use of toxic chemicals, water, and plastic.

Several cruise lines have already implemented Premium Purity™ on their fleet. The positive effect is a dramatic reduction in gastrointestinal cases, pristine conditions of the cabins as well as overall strong environmental impact. 

We look forward to bringing Premium Purity™ to your facility for the benefit of you, your guests, your staff, and the environment.

Case: National Geographic Explorer

One of our clients is Lindblad Expeditions and their fleet of National Geographic expedition ships.

The first vessel we implemented Premium Purity™ on was The National Geographic Explorer, a state-of-the-art, ice-class expedition ship. The Explorer accommodates 148 guests in 81 spacious cabins and is equipped with the latest tools for exploration.

n the past they used to have many conventional cleaning detergents on board but in 2018 a team from ACT.Global was invited to implement Premium Purity™ on the entire ship.

Consequently, six cleaning detergents were reduced to one – the ACT ECA System™ – and the ship crew significantly decreased the use of conventional chemicals. Moreover, Lindblad Expeditions saved over 1,000 plastic bottles containing for detergents fleetwide and reduced their water consumption by 1.1 million gallons per year as there was no need to rinse off harsh chemical detergents anymore.

Additionally, the crew was trained in a more efficient and healthier way of working with disinfection and cleaning onboard.

Based on great results and high crew satisfaction with Premium Purity™ onboard the Explorer, Lindblad Expeditions has decided to roll-out the solution to their entire fleet in 2020.

OVER A 12-MONTHS PERIOD, The National Geographic Explorer experienced more than 50% reduction in gastrointestinal cases reported to the ship’s doctor.”*

*The reduction is compared to the yearly reported cases from the previous three years before the implementation of Premium Purity™.
