Propelair Ltd

Propelair is an innovative and sustainable water saving toilet which was launched in 2013. Using patented POWA displaced air technology, the British designed and manufactured toilet produces a powerful, high-perfomance flush which only requires 1.5 litres of water. Using 84% less water per flush also reduces the energy required in water treatment, lowering the carbon footprint of the toilet by 80%. Propelair boasts WRAS and BSI Kitemark approvals whilst exceeding the environmental requirements detailed in Part G of the Building Regulations and Code for Sustainable Homes. It also achieves the highest performance rating under BREEAM's water consumption guidelines. In addition Propelair offers significant design flexibility as the toilet is able to operate equally effectively using 50mm waste pipe as well as the usual 100mm size.

EcoService (UK) Ltd
Stephen Horrey - - 01442 270032 -
The EcoSink is a Food Waste Disposer (FWD) from a major electric motor manufacturer who produces 10 million electric motors globally, each year. The combination of its patented "Bladeless" turntable and permanent magnet DC motor enables the EcoSink to grind food waste to a puree quickly and efficiently. Liquefied waste passes easily through the waste water system using little water and electricity. For an average family of four this equates to less than one toilet flush per day and £5 of electricity each year.
Recent articles stated that the Government is seeking to ban all food waste going to landfill sites, to meet EU Regulations, during the next 2 to 3 years. FWDs make an imortant contribution towards achieving this target as well as reducing methane/carbon emissions. A study calculated that for every 1Kw used in the operation of a FWD 10Kw of electricity could be created through the processing and burning of the watse material.
