JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. — Nu-Yale Cleaners recently won a 2009 Indiana Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence during the annual Pollution Prevention Conference and Trade Show.
The Governor’s Awards for Environmental Excellence recognize business leaders who have identified and implemented environmental practices into their programs and facilities with measurable results, according to Nu-Yale Cleaners. The company attributes its winning of the award to its installation of a Solvair Cleaning System.
“All of us at Nu-Yale Cleaners are excited and extremely honored to receive the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award,” says Gary Maloney, owner of Nu-Yeale Cleaners. “Our innovative cleaning technology is the first in Indiana, and [we are] only the ninth [cleaner] in the world to be able to offer this truly ‘green’ technology. For the first time, the consumer gets an even cleaner product using an environmentally safe process.”
Nu-Yale Cleaners installed its first Solvair Cleaning System in 2008, replacing its perc machinery. Nu-Yale also manages wastes with a system that cuts emissions and helps ensure reclamation of recyclable materials.
“When voluntary business actions result in improved operational practices, there will be a winning outcome every time,” says Rick Bossingham, Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) assistant commissioner. “Gary Maloney and Nu-Yale Cleaners are to be commended for their innovation and their achievements for engaging in environmentally friendly business operations.”
