New towel uses up to 35% less energy for drying & washing

05
Nov '08
On its 100th anniversary, Framsohn Frottier presented the world's first “Low Energy Towel”. Up to 35 percent less energy is required for drying and washing it. There is no need for softening agents, and less water is necessary. The new low energy hand towel was jointly developed with Lenzing AG.

It represents a quantum leap in textile technology. In the Austrian hotel business, the use of this towel could save 30 million kWh of energy, and 5000 tons of CO2 in the drying process alone. Eneco Technology (patented by Framsohn), forms the basis for these savings.

With its help, the water consumed when washing, and the energy required for drying can be significantly reduced. In addition, the stability of the fabric and the service life are enhanced.
