A lot of water for little energy

The regular intake of a large amount of water is important for our health. But how can we satisfy this need without putting too much strain on the environment? Kärcher commissioned the Applied University of Darmstadt to carry out a scientific study to find the optimal solution for man and nature. The results for WPD 100 in this context were outstanding.

Using plain facts to get things clear
The carbon footprint tells us how much CO2 has been emitted by the time a specific product is ready for use. The footprint is calculated by taking into account all the relevant factors such as the production, transport and packaging of the product.

In a study carried out by the Applied University of Darmstadt (April 2008) the carbon footprint of the Kärcher WPD 100 was compared to gallon-type water dispensers and bottle dispensing machines. The results were convincing and are self-explanatory: According to the study, the WPD 100 makes a significant contribution to avoiding CO2 emissions thereby making it an ideal component for a potential sustainability report.
