Energy- and Water-Saving Laundrettes
According to expert estimates one can start out from the fact that, on the average, about 90 percent of a launderette’s energy is consumed by washing machines and laundry dryers as well as for hot water production. An environmentally friendly operation of a launderette requires the use of energy-efficient appliances.
The Blue Angel eco-label may be awarded to launderettes featuring low energy and low water consumption. The Blue Angel sets requirements for both the appliances and the laundry detergents used at a launderette. Moreover, consumers are to be provided with information on environmentally friendly washing and drying.
