the leitmotif of IFA 2022 will certainly have been sustainability, the global context having propelled the depletion of resources to the heart of the concerns of the Berlin show. Beko, aware of the problem, offers an original solution to save water.

You will probably have noticed that the summer of 2022 was particularly dry and this phenomenon highlighted the need to save water. The Turkish Beko, who did not wait for this heat wave to look into the problem, took advantage of IFA 2022 to unveil his SaveWater solution. Deployed of course on appliances that consume water (typically dishwashers and washing machines), this innovation aims to limit their resource needs by offering the least water-intensive cycles possible. But above all, it is a question of exploiting the still usable waters, which were previously evacuated without any other form of process.

In the dishwasher, for example, the last rinse water is stored (for hygienic reasons for a maximum of 72 hours) in a tank. It is used during the first wash of the following cycle and should save 2.6 liters of water with each eco programme.

The dryer can be placed above or next to the washing machine.

In a laundry room, the SaveWater system works with a washing machine and a dryer. The water that has been extracted from the laundry fibers during drying is stored in the collection tray and can be used during washing; it is sent to the tub of the washing machine through a hose that runs between the two devices. This time, the method saves 5.2 liters of water per wash.

Admittedly, the impact of this technology varies enormously depending on the wash cycle used, the options activated, the load of laundry… which may seem insignificant when you know that the water consumption of a program can reach 50, 60, 70 l or even more. But as Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of the Arcelik group which owns Beko, points out, it is necessary to consider the multiple devices stamped SaveWater and multiply these few liters to have a more global vision of the savings made. In addition, it has the merit of exploring a concrete track and of being already available, since the devices in the range should arrive on the shelves very soon.

At the moment, we do not yet know the price of the different models in the SaveWater range.
