Most people know not to ingest toxic
chemicals, like cleaning products, but you’d be surprised to learn how
many don’t know that you shouldn’t pour them down the drain …and into
our waterways and environment.
plans to change that dynamic by investing here in Metro Detroit. The
Arizona-based start-up designs manufacturing processes for commercial
cleaning agents using new nano-technology that makes them more
environmentally friendly. These include cleaning chemicals, personal
care and antimicrobial coatings.
Greenblendz is spending
$795,000 to buy a vacant chemical manufacturing facility in Auburn
Hills. The investment is expected to create 47 new hires at the site.
Michigan Economic Growth Authority approved $11.3 million in tax
incentives to convince Greenblendz to set up shop in Metro Detroit
instead of in Ohio or North Carolina.
