MANCHESTER, N.H., Jun. 25 /CSRwire/ - (Marketwired) - Xeros, the innovator of an ultra-low water laundry system, today announced its rollout plan to the hospitality industry is on track and the majority of Xeros ecologically-sustainable laundry systems have been sold into the top 5 hotel groups in North America. According to MKG Group's annual rankings reported by Skift, HOTELS' 325 2013 report named IHG, Hilton Hotels, Marriott International, Wyndham Hotel Group and Choice International as the top five hotel groups in the world.
In the U.S., hotels use approximately 2.3 billion gallons of water per month to launder linens. The Xeros Laundry System can reduce water usage by up to 80% through the use of polymer bead technology. These savings are approximately the equivalent of one month's water consumption of every household in Sacramento, California.
The patented, award-winning system uses up to 80% less water, up to 50% less energy, and approximately 50% less detergent, to deliver superior cleaning results as compared to traditional "soap and water" methods. By combining the beads' molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results. The reusable beads have a lifespan of hundreds of washes before being collected and recycled for reintroduction into the polymer supply chain.
Xeros launched its ultra-low water laundry solution for hotels at the International Hotel, Motel, and Restaurant Show in November 2013 and was awarded the Editor's Choice Award, Best New Product for Hotel Operations.
Xeros is changing the way textiles are cleaned. Using patented polymer bead technology, the Xeros System for commercial cleaning uses up to 80% less water, 50% less energy and approximately 50% less detergent, and delivers superior cleaning results compared to conventional washing. Xeros was recently awarded a Bronze Medal in the prestigious Edison Awards; was named a top invention by TIME magazine, winner of 'Best Technological Breakthrough' in The Climate Week Awards 2011; listed in World Wildlife Fund for Nature's survey of global 'Green Game Changers'; and has been awarded two Rushlight 2013 Awards for green innovation. Strategic partnerships include Green Earth Cleaning and BASF. Xeros is headquartered in the UK with offices in the US and China. For additional information, please visit www.xeroscleaning.com.
