Sofidel Launches Bio Tech Toilet Paper that Cleanses Pipes

September 14, 2017

 Sofidel, a leading global provider of paper for hygienic and domestic use, today debuted Papernet Bio Tech, the first toilet paper to use innovative Biologic Active Tissue Paper (BATP) technology. When the paper makes contact with water, natural, non-pathogenic microorganisms are activated and produce enzymes to eat away dirt. Once their work is complete, the enzymes bio-degrade, leaving no residue or negative environmental impact.

“A poorly maintained restroom can negatively impact a business’s reputation and the bottom line, so it’s important to stock innovative products that actually improve the restroom experience,” said Fabio Vitali, Vice President AFH Marketing & Sales for Sofidel America. “Bio Tech is designed to help reduce odors and clogs in pipes, thereby enhancing customer satisfaction and limiting the frequency of expensive and time-consuming repairs.”

In about four weeks, the sanitizing effect of Papernet’s Bio Tech toilet paper helps to free pipes, septic tanks and sewer systems of dirt to help prevent blockages. Sample studies prove that the exclusive use of Bio Tech drastically reduces the need to pump out the sewer system and enables total savings of up to 40 percent compared with standard toilet paper. The product also helps fight unpleasant restroom odors that can turn away guests and attract insects.

Bio Tech is nominated for a 2017 ISSA Innovation Award for the Supplies & Accessories category, and is being displayed at Sofidel booth 4069 and ISSA booth 709 during the North America exhibition in Las Vegas, Sept. 12-14.

During the exhibition, Sofidel welcomes booth visitors to help Hurricane Harvey and Irma victims. Stop by booth 2049 to learn more about the company’s efforts to donate essential products to areas affected by the storms.
