The UK company responsible for creating the brand new technology which is set to revolutionise the world of laundry equipment has now set its sights on the US.
Xeros Ltd, which developed the virtually waterless laundry system, is now set to complete its first installation in Manchester, New Hampshire. The technology uses polymer bead technology with specially designed industrial laundry detergents to clean clothes and linens more effectively than previous methods, whilst also using a fraction of the water.
The patented beads the process uses apparently attract dirt from soiled items and absorb them, and they can be used for hundreds of washes before they need replacing.
The company believes that its new technology could help laundry, restaurant, hotel and other businesses which require laundry services to save money, energy and gallons of water. The virtually waterless washing method could also make business laundry processes much more efficient and eco-friendly, as well as halving their use and reliance on industrial laundry chemicals.
Tim Maxwell, who is the head of the largest dry cleaning brand in the world, GreenEarth Cleaning, has said of the technology:
“We had the honour of previewing this exciting new technology to many of our 800 U.S. dry cleaning affiliates over the past two years. We believe Xeros will be embraced by our industry because of the significant cost savings and environmental benefits it brings.”
