Xeros' technology cleaning face masks of key workers in France


Xeros Technology Group plc (AIM: XSG, 'Xeros', 'the Group'), the developer and provider of water saving and filtration technologies with multiple commercial and domestic applications, today advises  that its partner in France, Georges SAS, is now using its Xeros-enabled washing machines to clean fabric face masks worn by French key workers during the current Covid-19 pandemic.


Georges SAS has put in place a programme with SNCF in Lyon to clean and sterilise up to 25,000 masks each week. SNCF workers each having their own masks which are individually tracked and traced through their lifecycle.


Use of Xeros' technology in this application follows extensive validation that it is highly effective in removing biological, HCFC's, heavy metals and asbestos contaminants from life protecting clothing, simultaneously extending the life of these expensive garments. In addition to SNCF, Georges serves many other iconic French enterprises as well as cleaning the uniforms of those restoring Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower.


Karine Da Silva, Chair of Georges SAS said: "Our partnership with Xeros is fundamental. We could not imagine choosing an alternative to their technology to create and develop Georges. Through our partnership we have been able to convince the largest French companies such as SNCF, Air France and Renault to be our customers.


"Xeros' technical expertise has also enabled us to be extremely responsive in this time of Covid-19 in France. We were able to guarantee safe and efficient cleaning for our customers, and it has been a determining element to win new contracts and be able to take care of fabric masks in these times."


Mark Nichols, CEO Xeros commented "Our partnership with Georges is built on a deep mutual understanding of how our technologies meet their customers' needs. Karine and her team have built a fast-growing business based upon providing unparalleled life-cycle garment services to major and highly discerning French companies. We see them as a role model for the industry and look forward to working with them to continue their geographic and segmental expansion"

Notes to Editors 


About Xeros


Xeros Technology Group plc is a platform technology Group that is transforming water intensive industrial and commercial processes.

Xeros' patented XOrbTM technology significantly reduces the amount of water used in the washing or dyeing of soft substrates such as garments and fabrics. They enable the remaining water to become far more efficient and effective in either affixing or removing molecules, the result being improvements in economic, operational, product and sustainability outcomes. The Group is applying its technology in the fields of cleaning, tanning and garment manufacture.

Xeros' XDrumTM technology is a patented, simple, low cost machine drum design which enables XOrbsTM to be introduced into and subsequently removed from process cycles in Xeros' chosen markets. The design enables rotating drum machine Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEMs") in the fields of garment manufacture and cleaning, the ability to make simple and low-cost changes in their production lines to incorporate the Company's XOrbTM technology.

The Group has signed multiple agreements to develop and license its XDrumTM and XOrbTM products in major commercial and domestic markets.

XFiltraTM is a patented in-machine filtration technology which is designed to prevent harmful micro-plastics generated by washing cycles from being released into the aquacycle. Plastics released from synthetic clothing during washing cycles is one of the single largest sources of primary micro-plastic pollution.
