JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In an exclusive licensing agreement with Kimberly-Clark Corp., the Fortune 200 consumer brands company, UltraTech International Inc., manufacturer of spill containment, storm water management and advanced technology products, acquired rights to commercialize Kimberly-Clark's new odor-removal technology, which chemically binds to and removes malodorous molecules, rendering them less obtrusive.
The new technology, marketed under the brand name Aveho, unlike other current odor control materials, doesn't cover up odors with a flowery fragrance. Instead, metal ions chemically react with the offending smells and either adsorb them or catalytically convert them into non-odorous molecules that do not cause offensive odors. The technology has a multitude of applications, including pet odor control products, shoe insoles, garbage cans, athletic and hunting apparel, refrigerator odor removal, as well as industrial uses.
The agreement won the Deal of Distinction award for the CEEM sector because of the competitive advantage that the game changing odor control technology could potentially provide UltraTech and Kimberly-Clark.
"Kimberly-Clark's odor removal technology effectively complements our current advanced technology product offerings," said Mark Shaw, CEO of UltraTech. "With our experience in introducing new products and a global sales channel that matches needs with solutions, we look forward to bringing this innovative and needed technology to the market." UltraTech was pleased to announce that it went into commercial production of the Aveho Odor Control product in October, 2015.

Since then, its vision has expanded into additional product categories and the company now features a product line that consists of over 350 unique products.
