Propelair has developed and patented in all the major markets a new type of water saving toilet system called Propelair®.
Propelair uses an innovative air-based operating principle and only 1.5 litres of water per flush, which allows it to comply with existing building regulations. In addition to significant water savings which provide a fast payback for customers, the Propelair toilet is more hygienic than conventional toilets as it is proven to remove 99.939% of waterborne contaminants and reduce the creation of aerosolised contaminants by 95%; it has a quick refill which reduces queuing time; it has an excellent performance using a powerful and consistent single air flush; it incorporates an easy-off side hinge system to aid lid removal and cleaning which is much more robust than traditional hinges; and it produces less sewage so less treatment is required, which reduces carbon emissions, and there is less emptying of holding tanks, which saves money. The Propelair toilet system achieved certification and was launched in 2013. There have been initial sales to a number of major organisations including Anglian Water, Arup, Brighton & Hove City Council, London School of Economics, McDonald's, the Peacock Theatre, Royal Borough of Greenwich, the Royal College of Physicians, University of East Anglia and Victoria Palace Theatre. New investment of £2,000,000 is sought, with the benefit to EIS tax benefits, to strengthen the management team, build a sales and marketing team and add to its installation team, as well as for working capital to provide trails to commercial customers and build stock in advance of significant growth in sales.View full pitch
