About Us



About Plasma Clean

Plasma Clean are an innovative and research-led UK technology company. The business started in 2002, the brainwave of University of Manchester scientists Dr David Glover and Professor Christopher Whitehead.

Working across the UK and beyond, we provide grease, odour and smoke control systems that blend cutting-edge technology with the best of traditional techniques.

All products are designed in-house and manufactured in Cheshire, UK so we can keep a close eye on every detail and make sure each item meets our high quality standards.

Who we work with

We operate throughout the UK, Europe, Middle East, South East Asia and Australia, providing solutions for a wide range of applications.

Working closely with M&E consultants, Catering Houses, Kitchen Canopy and Extraction system manufacturers and M&E Contractors, we advise on the best solution whether it be kitchen extraction grease removal or complete odour removal in problem areas.

We also offer consultancy on a range of applications such as air disinfection for cold stores in supermarket chains, commercial butchers or 5 star hotels.  We also work with Facilities Management companies to help resolve issues with odours in washrooms and waste storage areas.

We have a wide range of end users from Tesco, Morrisons and Marks and Spencer, to McDonald’s, Premier Inn, Eds Easy Diner, and Hilton Hotels. See our list of Case Studies which provide examples of the range of projects we have worked on.

  • About Testimonial

    "Faced with EHO intervention to ensure odour free discharge at Theatre Severn, plus a low level extraction point, we found Plasma Clean offered the only suitable system that was cost effective, maintained efficiency and could be easily installed, saving us time and money. We will be using Plasma Clean on future projects."
