Xeros is moving a step closer to a full-scale commercial launch of its revolutionary polymer-based washing system following highly successful trials at Jeeves at Belgravia and Watford launderers + cleaners. The field trials show that Xeros’ next generation washing system delivers superior cleaning performance to conventional commercial washing systems, as well as significantly reduces energy, detergent and water consumption.
Located at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Xeros Limited is a relatively new company that has commercialised a globally relevant technology which originally came out of pioneering work by Professor Stephen Burkinshaw at the Textile Design department of the University of Leeds. Xeros has raised over £6 million in funding from private investment and government R&D grants to commercialise the technology. Xeros was named 2nd in the top 50 “2010 Best Inventions” by TIME magazine; winner of ‘Best Technological Breakthrough’ in The Climate Week Awards 2010; listed in WWF’s survey of global “Green Game-Changers”; and selected as one of only 19 best fast-growing “Clean & Cool” companies to go on a government sponsored mission to Silicon Valley (February, 2010).
