In conventional dry-cleaning processes, harsh chemicals are used that are harmful for the environment and linked to serious health problems. Conventional wet cleaning consumes vast quantities of potable water. By using encapsulated CO2, the same cleaning results can be achieved but without toxic chemicals or the use of large amounts of water. CO2 has the unique ability to deactivate bacteria & contaminants and remove heavy oil-based soils, leaving virtually no secondary waste. These environmental and performance benefits translate into direct economic savings, including longer garment lifetime and lower utility consumption. Our joint venture CO2Nexus is working on commercializing these processes.
