Clean development and demonstration — Sustainable domestic washing - s'wash

S´wash is an idea grant support project sponsored by MISTRA to create innovative research projects with great potential to improve the environment. S´wash has decreased the water usage down to a consumption of 10.3 litres of water for a washing load of three kilograms of textiles, a decrease of 79 percent compared to the standard washing machine used in European households today. During the course of the project a lot of different techniques and approaches have been tested to find suitable solution to implement in a washing machine. Two prototypes have been built to evaluate solutions and ideas. The prototypes are based on standard washing machines but the solutions are not yet ready for production.
