At Envirofluid we have a vision for a better world - a world where toxic and hazardous chemicals are no longer commonplace. We believe that every Australian should be protected from unnecessary exposure to harmful substances in the workplace and that the best way to achieve this is to remove the threat itself. That’s why we have relentlessly sought out the best science can offer, to find responsible, high performance replacements for some of the world’s most commonly used toxic and dangerous chemicals that place people at risk of instant injury or long term harm. At Envirofluid we’re deeply passionate about what we do; and why wouldn’t we be? What we do improves people’s lives, improves business, and opens up new realms of innovation - For a Better World.
