Clean technology enables industrial laundering firms to reduce environmental impact and resource consumption
Brussels, 28 March 2014 - Between 2007 and 2011 industrial laundries reduced their gas and oil consumption by 13%. Over the same period of time 5% less electricity was used to provide the same services. These are some of the key findings of ETSA survey of resource consumption in workwear and flat linen laundries. These savings in resource consumption are reflected in a 7% reduction of CO2 emissions. The industry's lower ecological impact is the result of continued investments in clean technology which is essential to achieve sustainable development.
