Jamie Harrison, Licensing Director for Commercial Products, tells us how Xeros is making sustainable commercial laundry possible: Low-water, high efficiency washing machines have been changing the landscape of the commercial laundry world for the last 5 years. Increasing awareness of scarce, finite resources like water and a desire to reduce our collective impact on the environment has driven a move towards more efficient equipment. Xeros-enabled washing machines featuring cutting-edge XOrbTM and XDrumTM technology are currently hard at work in commercial laundries, dry cleaners and hotels around the world - including leading chains such as Marriott, Hilton and IHG. Many of these establishments are so impressed by the results and savings delivered by this sustainable solution that they quickly come back for more. One innovative cleaning service, Georges SAS, in France has 11! Last year – 24th June 2019 to be exact - these washing machines collectively reached an amazing milestone, having helped Xeros-enabled equipment users save 1 billion litres of water! New Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) Partner Licensing Model Launched to Meet Demand We’ve proven that our technologies save water, energy and chemistry whilst providing a superior wash quality. But we don’t want to make washing machines – manufacturers do that brilliantly and in huge volumes already! So, we have set up an OEM Partner Licensing Model. This means that, for the first time, manufacturers can easily integrate Xeros technology into their washing machines - allowing them to be more sustainable whilst providing an even better wash performance. Partnering with manufacturers around the world brings sustainable laundry to a wider audience in a shorter timeframe, and it means that laundry operators can continue to invest in the recognised machinery brand names with which they have built lasting, trusted relationships. At Xeros, we believe eco-friendly washing machines should be easily accessible for all. The Technology of Choice for World-Leading OEMs   A number of manufacturers across the globe have already signed licencing agreements to incorporate our unique water-saving XOrb and XDrum technologies. The biggest commercial washing machine manufacturers in both India and China have signed up, allowing their machines to use up to 60% less water and up to 50% less energy than conventional washing machines. IFB Industries in India In March 2020, IFB Industries Ltd launched their innovative, Xeros-enabled commercial laundry machines at the AAHAR - International Food & Hospitality Fair 2020 in Delhi. India is facing a major water crisis. Estimates suggest that 40% of the population will have no access to drinking water by 2030. The IFB team are taking the reality of this crisis seriously, and we are proud to be supporting them with the integration of our highly effective water-saving technology.

Sea-Lion in China Sea-Lion officially launched their commercial washing machines featuring XOrb and XDrum technology at Texcare Asia 2019 - the main event in Asia for the laundry, dry cleaning and textile services industry. Sea-Lion is a market leading manufacturer of commercial washing machines and laundry equipment in the Chinese market. We are honoured to have worked closely with them since 2013 as the exclusive manufacturer of Xeros’ commercial washing machines in China.

Benefits for becoming an OEM Partner Differentiate yourself from the competition By simply fitting our XDrum technology into your own machines, your customers could use up to 60% less water - which also means less energy and chemicals are used. Embrace change and upgrade to the latest technology to stand out from competitors.

Our experience and industry knowledge makes the process of design and integration seamless. The whole process is supported by our experienced team making it quick and easy to adopt our innovative solutions. Demonstrate an increasing commitment to sustainability We’re focussed on commercialising our technologies with manufacturers who share our dedication to protecting our planet’s precious natural resources.

10-year development and licencing agreement with IFB Industries for domestic and commercial washing machines Xeros Technology Group has signed a major development and licencing agreement with the Indian company IFB Industries to incorporate Xeros’ unique water-saving XOrb™ and XDrum™ technologies into a range of IFB’s domestic and commercial washing machines. IFB is the leading Indian company in the supply of both domestic appliances and commercial washing machines. The agreement is a major step for Xeros in commercialising its technologies and an exciting opportunity bringing Xeros technology to the domestic washing machine market. Full details of the announcement can be found here India is facing extreme water stress. A recent report suggested more than 600 million Indians face acute water shortages and 40% of the population will have “no access to drinking water” by 2030. This agreement with IFB is another major milestone in the commercialisation of our cleaning technologies.   IFB ’s capabilities and market reach make them a very strong commercialisation partner in a country where water demand is expected to increase by more than 60% over the next 30 years with some 80% of the current population already impacted by water scarcity.   With this agreement, IFB’s customers will be able to reduce water, detergent and energy consumption whilst simultaneously benefitting from improved cleaning performance and garment life extension.

Over 5 years Xeros has saved 887,275,729 litres of water To mark World Water Day 2019, we have calculated how much water our XOrb™ technology has saved our commercial laundry customers. During the last five years, our near-waterless washing machines, which reduce water use by up to 80 per cent and are certified an Environmentally Preferable Product, have saved just over 887.2 MILLION litres of water – enough to keep the taps running for a year in 5,377 UK households or to power 148 million toilet flushes. A rapidly growing, increasingly urbanised population is causing extreme water-stress in many parts of the world. Globally, more than 844 million people do not have access to clean water and by 2050 one in four people will be affected by recurring water shortages. Even the UK could face water shortages within 25 years. So, it is more important than ever that we work to divert water away from industry and processes to where it is needed most, people. We are committed to creating a more sustainable planet and to protect and conserve one of our most precious resources – water. Read more about our core purpose and how we’re helping our commercial laundry customers save water.   [Sustainability, Cleaning, Xeros Technologies, Blog, consumer]

Commercial laundry system is the world's only washing machine awarded Environmentally Preferable Product status Xeros Technology Group has secured a prestigious environmental certification by SCS Global Services, a global leader in environmental and sustainability verification. The certification recognises Xeros’ commercial washing machine as an Environmentally Preferable Product, based on a life cycle assessment of the company’s 25kg machine, operated by Xeros’ commercial laundry business, Hydrofinity. Full details can be found here. To complete the assessment SCS Global evaluated the Xeros' Hydrofinity machine over more than 20,000 wash cycles, testing factors including: water use, energy demand and carbon emissions among other environmental impacts. The results showed that the Hydrofinity machine demonstrated better performance across the board including energy savings of up to 86 per cent (during the use stage) and water savings up to 63 per cent. The results of SCS Global’s certification is validation of the work we are doing to apply our innovative, sustainable technologies across our Hydrofinity business.   In a world where precious natural resources are becoming increasingly stressed, we can no longer accept conventional thinking about every-day, water and energy intensive processes such as laundry.   At Xeros we are committed to developing our innovative technologies to reimagine these processes and divert resources away from industrial processes to where they are needed most – people.
