NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. (OTCBB:BONU), a specialty chemical, technology-based life science company, has completed comparative testing of its Multipurpose Cleaner vs. leading branded European products. The tests demonstrate that Ogiene far outperforms leading competitive European products.

For the elimination of difficult to remove stains and various dirt and greasy grime, BioNeutral's Multipurpose Cleaner outperformed Terra Activ All-Purpose Cleaner and Green Works™ Natural All Purpose Cleaner. These two products represent new cleaners in Europe which use sustainable ingredients. However, these two products were ineffective compared to BioNeutral's environmentally friendly Multipurpose Cleaner when it came to removing really difficult stains and dirt. In addition to superior cleaning benefits, BioNeutral's water-based multipurpose cleaner also has the following positive environmentally friendly features: contains no polluting phosphates, chlorine, phenolics or endocrine mimickers and is nonabrasive. BioNeutral's Multipurpose Cleaner uses no ingredients which compete or detract from the world's food supply.

The following table provides representative stain removing results for BioNeutral's Multi-Purpose Cleaner vs. Green Works™ and Terra Activ cleaners:

Dr. Andrew Kielbania, Chief Scientist of BioNeutral Group, Inc. said, "We are elated with the superior cleaning performance of our multipurpose cleaner compared to the European brands. Our environmentally friendly multipurpose cleaner contains no ingredients which detract from the world's food supply. This is in direct contrast with many of the newer 'sustainable' cleaners that use ingredients derived directly from grain, corn or beets. We believe no one should utilize sources of real food to make anything, much less cleaners, when there is a huge ongoing global need to feed the world's population."  

The Ogiene line of products is available in Europe, and has been approved for sale, and will soon be available, in the United States.
