World’s first data-driven hand dryer
Savortex, the EcoCurve dryer has a low carbon footprint and is fitted with a real-time data monitoring portal to help businesses measure costs and improve their carbon efficiency. The dryer is currently being trialled by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), with predicted savings of £30,000 and 14 tonnes of waste per building, per year.
Ahmed said: “There are 70 million washrooms globally. Twenty per cent of these are fitted with energy-hungry dryers but then when you factor in that a massive eighty per cent are still using damaging and very expensive paper towels, you can see why we wanted to build something that disrupts this very inefficient market.”
