The Department of innovation and development of the Lagoon wetcleaning franchises, has produced a full report comparing the consumption of energy, water, solvents and soaps, between the new Lagoon system and a last generation of traditional dry-cleaning machine. This report suggests that dry-cleaners Lagoon franchises are 40% more efficient, energetically speaking, besides does not generate any residue. Clear apart from the excellent quality of wash that provides Lagoon. Read more here: Andreessen Horowitz.

Thus we see that we spend more water with the dry cleaning with the Lagoon system, which is specifically a wash in water. I.e., that the volume of water required the machine to dry just to cool is much greater than the need of the Lagoon system for the entire cleaning process. ELECTRICITY: With the cost of electricity that passes a similar thing with the expense of water. While washing a kilo of clothes with a machine that uses perchloroethylene we need of 0.69 Kwh.
with Lagoon water wash system we use only 0.29 Kwh. This is due to processes which need a model of clean facing each other. When washed in water we save els energy expenditure involved in distilling all the precloroetileno used in the process, also, with the system Lagoon do not heat the water, since washed at 30 degrees.
