  • Publication number: 20120245074
    Abstract: The invention includes a GRAS preservative system including sodium bisulfate and a combination of specific organic acids that act in a synergistic capacity. The preservative further has the benefit of a higher melting point of approximately 110° or higher making it particularly suited for solid wash applications. According to the invention it has surprisingly been found that a combination of sodium bisulfate, sorbic acid, and benzoic acid produced better preservative properties than other organic acid combinations or each acid by itself.

  • Patent number: 8084411
    Abstract: The present invention is drawn to disinfectant systems and methods which can be used to produce a disinfectant solution. The system can include a first liquid composition and a second liquid composition. The first liquid composition comprises from 0.0005 ppm to 100,000 ppm by weight of a transition metal or alloy and an alcohol, and the second liquid composition comprises water and a peroxygen compound. The first and second liquid compositions are formulated to be combined so as to yield a resultant disinfectant solution. The disinfectant solution can be used to disinfect a variety of surfaces and even liquid compositions.
