2008-04-17 - Cold Jet Joins International Business and Environmental Leaders at FORTUNE Brainstorm: Green
Cold Jet and Coldsweep to demonstrate environmentally responsible dry ice blast cleaning process as sponsor of the Green Playground
CINCINNATI - April 17, 2008 - Cold Jet, LLC, the global leader in dry ice blast cleaning and production solutions, and Coldsweep, a contractor based in Mountain Green, Utah that exclusively uses Cold Jet equipment, will join business and environmental leaders from around the world at FORTUNE Brainstorm: Green, an invitation-only event at Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, Calif. on April 21-22, 2008. Attendees representing all fields of business, academia, politics and non-governmental organizations will discuss the impact of the green movement and explore the opportunities and challenges facing FORTUNE 500 companies, entrepreneurs, governments, and the financial world. Among the hundreds of companies that will be represented at the event are BP Oil, Dow Corning, DuPont, ExxonMobil, GE, General Motors and Xerox.
Cold Jet and Coldsweep are among 20 sponsors that were invited to the environmental conference to demonstrate innovative, cutting edge green products and solutions as part of the event's "Green Playground." Coldsweep, which was named as one of the top ten greenest small businesses in America by StartupNation, uses Cold Jet's environmentally responsible dry ice blast cleaning systems to provide fast, effective industrial cleaning and historical restoration services. Cold Jet's cleaning solutions are being used around the world and across multiple industries, including rubber and plastics, printing, automotive, packaging, semi-conductor, power generation and remediation and restoration to help reduce the impact of cleaning chemicals and the secondary waste produced by conventional cleaning processes.
"We are excited to be a part of the FORTUNE Brainstorm: Green conference and to share the stage with so many business and environmental leaders," said Randell Heath, founder of Coldsweep, LLC. "With the help of Cold Jet, we have helped numerous companies and organizations across the United States recognize the power and efficacy of dry ice blast cleaning, and the environmental benefits of using CO2 to eliminate the dependence on harmful, ozone depleting cleaning chemicals. This conference will allow us a unique opportunity to educate, and in many cases, introduce to many of the conference attendees dry ice blasting as a green cleaning alternative."
Cold Jet dry ice blasting uses compressed air to accelerate frozen carbon dioxide (CO2) "dry ice" pellets through high-velocity nozzles to impinge upon the surface being cleaned. The combination of the kinetic and thermal shock effects breaks the bond between the residue and the surface. The residue falls away from the surface and is easily removed. The dry ice particles sublimate (transition from a solid to a gas without passing through the liquid stage) upon impact, leaving no other cleaning by-product, and eliminating the added cost and inconvenience of secondary waste treatment and disposal.
"FORTUNE Brainstorm: Green provides a tremendous opportunity for Cold Jet and Coldsweep to educate leaders from all industries about dry ice blasting," said Stuart Rabkin, chief marketing officer at Cold Jet, LLC. "Thousands of organizations around the world use our systems because they work better than conventional cleaning solutions. With an increased focus on green, the environmental benefits of our cleaning process have become increasingly important, and our systems have become truly complementary components of our customers' overall green strategies. We look forward to representing the select group of innovative companies that have been invited to demonstrate our commitment to the environment."
