The recent Ecovacuum project conducted in Brussels has suggested new targets in energy saving that cleaner manufacturers will be expected to meet.
However the Government have still failed to take an interest in a project that can save over 75 % of the power used by Vacuum Cleaners.
It is Air Recycling Technology and can make a 250 Watt cleaner work as efficiently as a 1,400. watt vacuum cleaner; this was the result of tests conducted for the Market Transformation Program.
Air Recycling Technology can save 1.5 Terawatt of electricity each year in the UK alone that is about £225,000,000. worth of electricity at 15p a unit and 650,000 Tons of CO2. Emissions Annually. Imagine the amount of power that could be saved if Air Recycling Cleaners where used World Wide.
