Company Summary

We license and sell liquid CO2-based solutions under the TERSUS brand for cleaning garments & textiles. Customers are large uniform service companies, brand apparel OEMs and their upstream supply chain partners, and other institutions (eg. military). CO2 has unique performance and cost advantages vs. water, driven by a much lower water-waste-energy footprint and unique textile treatment properties (coating, sterilizing, cleaning, finishing).
