The company is a start-up launched in 2016 and based in Luxembourg that has been developing, producing and selling since 2018 an innovative device for automated toilet flushing that has intelligent management where water consumption can be reduced by up to 30%. The company seeks sales and distribution agents.
This company from Luxembourg is active in the field of automated toilet flushing has developed a patented accessory, unique in the world, which automates the flushing of toilets, ensuring intelligent management of the consumption of flushing water. This is not a new type of flush, but it is an accessory that optimises the existing flush, aiming to save up to 30% of water consumption. The company's patented system, which was awarded a gold & silver medal at the renowned Concours Lépine in France, optimises toilet flushing and is particularly advantageous in public buildings such as hotels, administrations, event halls.Based on the principle that satisfactory waste disposal can be obtained with less water, it uses only a fraction of the volume of water available. The rinsing is triggered automatically when the user leaves depending on the detection of the use of toilet paper. Taking into account the amount of toilet paper used, the system intelligently manages the volume of water required for rinsing: a small amount of paper used will flush with only 2 liters of water, while larger quantities will use a volume from 3 to 4 liters of water, which can reduce water consumption when compared to common toilets (the usual flushes consume 3 liters with the small button and 6 liters with the large button ). The company is looking for sales agents who could integrate the current product while selling WC and flush systems to individual clients as well as building companies. Furthermore, the company is also looking for public administrations (such as communes, airports), hotels and facility mangers of other big buildings where this product could help in saving water. The company is interested to sign sales agreements with the agents.
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is primarily looking for business partners such as sales agents to include the technology in their product portfolio. Companies active in the field of sanitary equipment are the main target in terms of sales agents. In addition, the company is also interested to establish partnerships with building & renovation companies who could integrate this technoloigy in their construction projects. The partners could also be public administrations (airports, communes) where this technology could be very useful and help in reducing water consumption.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
As a supplement to the existing flush system, it is important to note that for the moment only toilets equipped with Geberit UP 320 flush system may be equipped with this invention. It is planned to extend the compatibility to other brands as things progress. Due to the need to connect the system to power, the equipment of exisiting toilets may not be appropriate. The company therefore only recommend installation for new buildings or renovations of bathrooms.
Stage of Development:
Already on the market
