At present Xeros is still carrying out work to optimise the system for the commercial market. An early prototype machine has been designed by engineering and design company Cambridge Consultant and was being used in demonstrations on the GreenEarth Stand at Clean ’09 in June.

As an environmentally friendly system, Xeros with provide drycleaners that already use the GreenEarth drycleaning system with a complementary laundering method.

The partnership deal will give GreenEarth Cleaning exclusive licencing rights for the North American drycleaning market and also the right to licence the system to GreenEarth affiliates worldwide.

The company will also provide affirmation sites to validate the process using a late prototype machine before its eventual launch on the commercial market.
