Latest Invention: Washing Machine That Doesn't Need Water

Share

British company Xeros looks forward to conquer the American market with its latest invention, a new washing system able to save a lot of water using nylon beads. The beads tumble wash clothes using 90 percent less water than traditional washers.

In addition, the company's latest invention, which is currently in the development stage, requires less detergent. Xeros claims that there would be no need for tumble drying and if the homes in the United States would switch to the new system, the emissions of carbon dioxide would be considerably reduced. The result would be as though 5 million vehicles have been removed from the road. The company also says that the new washing machine will save 1.2 billion tons of water each year, which equals 17 million swimming pools.

The washing machine does its job using small nylon beads that eliminate stains off clothes and lock them into the molecular structure of the nylon. The beads can be used for hundreds of washes and afterwards they can be easily recycled. The technology behind the new washing machine is the result of a research carried out at the University of Leeds. It has been used in a concept washing machine by the Cambridge Consultants.

After carrying out tests for over three years, Xeros, a spinout from the University, managed to achieve an agreement with Kansas City-based GreenEarth Cleaning, which intends to market Xeros' latest invention across North American continent in 2010. You can read more about the product on the company's website .

If you think this invention is important vote for it.

Its a great idea,which in turn reduce the electricity bill and also save water.but I think this will not become a popular matter because only few peoples use this machine as their daily use,due to the increasing electricity bill.anyway if this possible all can use washing machine without any fear about electricity bill.
will it remove stains ?

This machine is necessarily important when we are forced to have water using loads of electricity, domestically. This invention must be shared on twitter and facebook.

its great and all, BUT how much? when will the average consumer, be able to afford this? for energy and water consumption to be reduced and for this invention to be able to make any sort of a dent, in any way, every north american will have to have one in their house. unless its made for industrial use as well, and even if they did, who says, the industries users will go a head and dive into replacing all of their machineries with this technology, unless they're made to do so. ha that will be a cold they in hell, lol.

Um, wouldn't the pockets of the clothes being "washed" get the little beads all in them? Won't there be beads all over the place when you pull the clothes out?

I'm not sure about this one at all.
