Blue Washing Machine 

A metropolitan city like Kolkata uses 50 million litres of water everyday for their washing needs. With increasing water usage, the need to treat greywater so it can be used as clean water especially for the purposes of washing and cleaning is high. The blue washing machine drastically reduces water consumption and wastage. Grey water is chemically treated, filtered and then ultra filtered which makes 98% of the feed water pure. In this way, 90% of the laundry water is saved. Traditionally, grey water is rejected by washing machines even though it is not as polluted as “black water”, this machine helps save that water and reuse it in a safe manner.
