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.
The total annual EU energy consumption of Vacuum Cleaners is estimated as 33.45 Twh. So by using air recycling technology ART, a saving of more than 25 Twh of electricity annually is possible in the EU. Equal to £3.25 billion pounds and 13.5 million tonnes of CO2.Emissions Annually.
You would think that a project of this value would at least get a good hearing. But I am sorry to tell you that although working prototypes exist and tests have been made the project is still gathering dust. It seems that everyone is shouting about saving energy but not prepared to lift a finger to help.
There is much truth in the saying "there are none so blind as those that do not want to see".
Air recycling can also remove the health hazard caused by the air that is normally blown from a VC disturbing allergens, causing them to become suspended in the air. With respiratory diseases on the increase this is another reason why the Government should investigate this cleaner and ensure it's manufactured.
This new approach to cleaner manufacture opens up the potential of an EU market in the floor care industry of over Four Billion Pounds annually.
But no one realy cares.
