Direct release = Can be released directly into the natural environment, including sensitive aquatic environments.*
Need a powerful cleaning solution for outdoor, marine and offshore applications? Our DIRRECT Power industrial cleaners are the answer.
DIRRECT Power cleaners are recognized as qualifying direct release products by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) program.* These products can be released directly into the environment, including marine environments, without permits or treatment.**
