Companies, supporting the global alliance »electric Handdryer Association – eHA« are representing an efficient and sustainable market. Modern products in the air-based hand drying business are characterized by being environmentally friendly, hygienic, efficient, and economically attractive.
Life cycle analyses have demonstrated that energy efficient electric hand dryers use less energy and fewer natural resources to dry hands than paper towels. In addition, replacing paper towels with a hand dryer reduces solid waste going to landfills, which reduces disposal and maintenance costs.
Our industry has lots of potential. We need to focus on that while simultaneously challenging the critical arguments made by the paper world. As long as nobody reflects on the communicational input from the tissue industry, things can be described the wrong way without consequences.
Therefore this initiative has been founded. You are interested in participating or you want more information? Please subscribe to our newsletter or get in touch using the button below.
