NewProducts Bead-cleaning laundry system scoops two awards


UK-based polymer bead- cleaning company Xeros has won two awards on different sides of the Atlantic in a sin- gle evening. Xeros, based in Rotherham’s Advanced Man- ufacturing Park, was named University Spin-Out of the Year in the New Energy and Cleantech Awards 2014 in London, which recognise companies that have played a pivotal role in the develop- ment of the green energy and cleantech industries. The company markets a vir- tually waterless commercial laundry system, utilising technology developed at the University of Leeds. In addition, the company


won bronze in the Energy/Sustainability cate- gory for its laundry system at the Edison Awards 2014 in San Francisco, California.


Awards’ executive director, said: “This award recognises Xeros as a true innovator in energy and sustainability. Edison Award winners rep- resent the most innovative and gamechanging prod- ucts and services of the year.” Bill Westwater, CEO at


Xeros’ patented polymer


bead-cleaning system is cur- rently being used in com- mercial washing machines, where it cuts water use by up to 80%, reduces energy usage by up to 50% and de- tergent use by up to half, compared to conventional


solutions. The company has also developed a late-stage prototype for a domestic bead-cleaning washing ma- chine and is also developing bead-cleaning for leather processing and other appli- cations. Frank Bonafilia, Edison


Xeros, said: “It is always special for the company to be recognised as a green game-changer with such prestigious awards. How- ever, to win two awards, on the same night, in San Francisco and London, is certainly a first for Xeros. It’s a testament to the global relevance of Xeros bead cleaning and the fan- tastic efforts from our teams in both the US and the UK.” www.xeroscleaning.com


Free floor pad app launched to assist operatives


To achieve the best results when cleaning a floor, not only are the best materials required but also knowledge on how to use them. With more than 30 different floor pads to choose from, it is im- portant to be able to pick the best one for the job in hand. Which pad is most suitable for which type of floor, which type of machine or which type of dirt? The answer to all these questions is now available thanks to the free Wecoline floor pad app. It is an app that, step-by- step, maps out the ‘floor


problem’ and advises on which pad to use to beat it. The app also gives informa- tion on the correct work method, using short films. Derik Landman, Wecoline’s


marketing and sales direc- tor), said: “We were asked recently why it was that a marble floor had lost its gloss after cleaning it with a black pad. Using the right pad saves time and improves the result. Also, cleaning can be done less often. Finding out which pad to use is really worth the effort.” To be able to give good ad-


C&M is a proud supporter of the following associations and events:


vice 24/7, Wecoline has de- veloped the floor pad app. After answering just four simple questions, the user receives professional advice, supported by short films about the correct use of the pad on the floor. And if the user needs more informa- tion, he or she can contact Wecoline directly by e-mail or telephone by a simple push on one of the app’s but- tons. The Wecoline floor pad app


can be downloaded via the App-store and Play Store. www.wecoline.com/app
