Nashville area carwash strives for sustainable, eco-friendly business plan.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Super Speed Wash, an exterior express carwash with 10 locations throughout Middle Tennessee has recently upgraded their wash chemicals to become a "Beyond Green" certified carwash facility.
All Super Speed Wash locations now exclusively use Blue Coral Beyond Green chemicals as part of a commitment to use only products that clean and protect customer vehicles while reducing or eliminating the release of specific compounds into the air and water.
The chemicals used by Super Speed Wash are designed to minimize the impact on the environment. Super Speed Wash's carwash chemicals are free of phosphates, butyls, NPEs and hydrofluoric acid -- harmful chemicals that are still used by many car washes today.
The Beyond Green certification signifies that Super Speed Wash is taking conscious steps toward minimizing the company's impact on the environment. With the help of Blue Coral, the company is able to safeguard the environment while still delivering clean and shiny vehicles.
Through the use of water-saving recapture programs and energy-saving processes that limit electrical use, Super Speed Wash has worked for years to operate an environmentally sustainable business by incorporating products, processes, and developments that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
In addition to the Beyond Green certification, Super Speed Wash is also a certified WaterSavers carwash, which means the company prevents water pollution by routing wash water through treatment prior to its return to the environment, and by using less than 40 gallons of water per car washed (less than the average washing machine).
Super Speed Wash's computer-operated tunnel systems use only the water each car requires, resulting in as much as a 90% reduction in water versus driveway and parking lot car washing. The company recaptures the water that other reverse-osmosis rinse systems typically waste -- up to 1,500 gallons per day, per location.
The carwash company has invested heavily in Variable Frequency Drives that conserve energy through computer management of high-powered motors. Additionally, Super Speed Wash has replaced power-hungry lighting fixtures with more efficient florescent and LED fixtures through all their Nashville area carwash locations.
Finally, Super Speed Wash helps their customers do their part to improve the environment by providing recycling bins at all locations.
