Miele Professional has announced that its range of washing machines has been accepted onto the Water Technology List, having successfully met the criteria to enable Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) claims. It means that the products are now even more cost-effective.
The Water Technology List, managed by AEA on behalf of Defra and HM Revenue and Customs, will help businesses save money in the short and long-term by encouraging them to invest in technologies and products that reduce water use. Water savings are a key area for all businesses. Manufacturing companies can easily save between 30% and 50% of water and wastewater costs through inexpensive changes to their working practices.
Kate Davis, AEA water specialist, said: “The Water Technology List is making it easy for businesses to make important decisions to improve their water use and save money at the same time. Businesses will benefit in the long-term through reduced water costs and improved water efficiency and in the short-term by claiming an Enhanced Capital Allowance. Miele Professional is one of the product and technology manufacturers leading the industry forward. One of the objectives of offering the ECA is to encourage innovation and to encourage companies such as Miele Professional to come up with new technologies to improve water use.”
Miele Professional's products fall into the 'efficient washing machines' category on the Water Technology List. Water efficient washing machines use less water than conventional washing machines without compromising wash performance. The Miele Professional models included on the list are the PW6055, PW6065, PW6080, PW6107, PW5105, PW6137, PW6167, PW6207, PW6247 and PW6321.
Les Marshall, sales and marketing director at Miele Professional, said: “We are delighted to be included on the Water Technology List. This not only provides a huge endorsement to the water efficiency of our products, but it also means that our customers can get an extra tax benefit by buying a Miele Professional washing machine.”
