SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ecologic Products, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Ecologic Transportation, Inc. (OTCQB: EGCT), is proud to announce our breakthrough waterless car wash process, Ecologic Shine™, is now an approved product for the largest national quick lube franchise network.
Ecologic Shine™ earned this status after completion of a test with one of the franchisees. The test, conducted at three of the franchisee's quick lube operations, evaluated the Ecologic Shine™ Family of Waterless Car Wash product line and its integration into the quick lube services.
Ecologic Shine™ is a waterless environmental car wash process that cleans and shines cars safely using Biodegradable, EPA compliant, non-toxic products and contains no CFC's. Ecologic Shine™ products and services conserve water and eliminate harmful run-off contamination.
The U.S. car wash industry uses over 320 million gallons of water annually. Ecologic Shine™ uses less than 8 oz. of water per car.
"We are extremely excited for the opportunity to show how our Ecologic Shine™ Family of Products can help enhance the customer experience at these franchise locations. With numerous locations and a long history in the quick lube industry, this opportunity provides a mature market to expand Ecologic Shine™ and its family line of environmental auto cleaning products," said Edward W Withrow III, Chairman and Founder of Ecologic Transportation, Inc.
The Ecologic Shine™ product line has recently completed its three year product proof of concept trial at a national airport parking firm where we successfully completed over 70,000 car washes and saved a total of over 5 million gallons of clean water in 2 major US regions. Our line of waterless car wash products has proven themselves in premium quality, safety and usability.
