The Symphony Project – an innovative technology collaborative with a mission to improve the sustainability of the world’s laundry rooms – has been launched by Xeros.
As part of the Symphony Project, Xeros will provide access to its innovative polymer science, product designs, IoT platform, and our entire commercial laundry eco-system to any participating partner so that conventional commercial washing machines can be transformed into sustainable polymer cleaning systems.
The goal is to enable partner brands to offer customers a more sustainable laundry system with significant operational and end-user benefits while retaining their hard-earned brand loyalty.
It is estimated that hotels around the world with on-premises laundries annually use 57 billion gallons of water to process the laundry generated from guest rooms. Heating the water to clean the guest room laundry generates over 2.6 billion pounds of carbon which is released into the atmosphere. Xeros polymer science can reduce a hotel’s water usage by up to 80% and since polymer cleaning requires very little hot water, the carbon output from laundry rooms can also be reduced by over 83%.
“Xeros’ success as illustrated by growing demand and positive customer feedback reinforces our commitment to making laundry more sustainable. However, the universal availability of fresh water and carbon emissions are critical issues for our planet and we know we can’t address these issues alone,” said Jonathan Benjamin, Global President of Xeros Cleaning Technologies.
“The Symphony Project enables the laundry industry to join a broader conversation about sustainability in an open, collaborative way and take great strides beyond what we are currently doing. The invitation to participate is for the entire industry from washing machine brands, to laundry room operators, to water and energy suppliers, to others.”
Ongoing research and innovation by Xeros engineers resulted in development of the technology that allows the integration of polymer science into existing machinery in a relatively non-invasive way. Now, all the polymer science required to retrofit a commercial washing machine can be packaged into a simple pedestal that is compatible with nearly any size or brand of conventional commercial washer.
