Ecolab Opens Research and Development Center for Hygiene in France

On Friday, September 11, 2020, Ecolab officially opened the recently expanded Laboratoires Anios Luce Letartre Research Center in Northern France in the presence of French Ministers Agnès Pannier-Runacher and Franck Riester.

The expansion of this center of excellence doubles the research and innovation capacity and accelerates the ability to launch infection prevention innovations to help protect public health. Initially constructed in 2012, the expanded Luce Letartre Research Center has the latest technologies to develop and test the effectiveness of new disinfectant formulations on infection-causing microorganisms, said Ecolab. With its increased capacity, the 37 employees at the facility will be able to conduct more than 22,000 tests per year and provide robust data as the companies pursue product registrations in multiple countries.
