Michael Rochon is a pioneer chemical formulator with a successful track record in developing low-odor and zero-V.O.C.-emission cleaning products. Michael’s ground breaking work in the field of new technology cleaning formulations has led to many patents including United States Patent 6,346,279 B1 Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfectant with Increased Activity. For the past forty years, Michael has worked in the cleaning supply and contract maintenance industry. Michael’s insight and vision led him to develop new technology cleaning formulations presently used in many hospitals. With foresight, he recognized the need for safer and healthier cleaning product formulations for the general public, and especially for the chemically hypersensitive individuals. Michael’s efforts in bringing to market low-odor cleaning products garnered him endorsements from several environmental organizations. Michael has also pioneered new technology cleaning formulations for disinfection and sanitization markets. Michael is President of Process Cleaning Solutions, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Process Cleaning Solutions is a Canadian company devoted to cleaning in such a way as to protect public health, protect the most sensitive, protect the environment and prevent the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Michael is currently developing cleaning processes that physically remove bacteria and bacterial spores to the same level as disinfectants are required to kill or inactivate for registration as disinfectants. These processes are used with PCS products registered with the United States EPA and Health Canada as disinfectants, allowing institutions to shift the focus to better cleaning of health care facilities in a safer , more effective and sustainable manner. As with Michael’s discovery of synergy between hydrogen peroxide ,anionic surfactants and inorganic acids he has now discovered a synergy between PCS stabilized sodium hypochlorite’s and controlled moisture cleaning with micro fiber cloths. This synergy allows for effective, safer and sustainable cleaning to protect public health including hospital isolation daily and discharge cleaning without the need to supplement cleaning with additional protocols like UV disinfection. Michael also is committed to assisting Health care facilities validate cleaning process with onsite microbial testing. Cleaning to a scientifically validated standard. Michael has presented at numerous conferences including: International Policy Forum, Environmental and Professional Hygiene, Toward the Prevention of Drug Resistant Infections, International Society of Microbial Resistance and Office of International Medical Policy School of Public Policy, George Mason University, 11th World Congress on Environmental Health Vancouver, Sept 2010.
