Ozone Washing Machine
March 28, 2006
SANYO Electric Co. has introduced a washing machine that features ozone technology and recycles water. The washing machine stores water from the final rinsing process in a storage tank and then infuses micro-bubbles of ozone that disinfect the water, allowing the water to be reused without disposal. The purified water also is used for dehumidification during the dryer function, eliminating the use of large amounts of tap water during drying. SANYO gives a manufacturer's suggested retail price for the machine at about 250,000 Japanese yen, or about $2,100.
