  • (1888PressRelease) November 23, 2017 - Biel: Resource efficiency and sustainability are growing environmental concerns across the world, especially with respect to freshwater conservation. Water is the source of life and freshwater makes up only 3% of global water reserves. With a large number of people struggling to find potable water to use for drinking and cooking, it is high time to find effective solutions to avoid wasting this ‘liquid gold’.

    The COMBI, a 3-in-1 unit that dispenses water, soap, and paper, and the COMPACT, a 2-in-1 system delivering water and soap are designed to offer its customers the savings of up to 90% of water and 60% of soap and water respectively when compared to a standard system.

    The “Verwaltungsgebäude am Zentralplatz”, an administrative building in the city of Biel, Switzerland, has been equipped with 5 COMBI systems. Mrs Barbara Schwickert, Director of Public Works, Energy and the Environment for the town of Biel, who has been supporting the young company’s project from its inception said, “When we realised that the main advantage of the SMIXIN machines was to be able to make considerable water savings in the long term, we decided to participate in this endeavour, as part of our environmental policy.”

    An added advantage of the SMIXIN’s products is that its connected systems can be managed remotely while indicating that the products are dynamic. Additionally, the products are designed using the advanced technology, “Supervision”, to control SMIXIN systems. The technology utilizes the usage and status data for each SMIXIN’s product such as the number of hand-washes performed, the quantity of water used and the amount of soap remaining in the devices to anticipate restocking and maintenance. This technology allows complete visibility to a dispenser’s status to ensure the dispenser is always filled and in a good working order.
    The executives at Cantonal Bank of Berne, BEKB/BCBE, sharing their view on SMIXIN’s products opined, “The modern design and innovative technology of the COMPACT fit well with our company image. Moreover, we support the product’s ecological and sustainable credentials. SMIXIN’s products are nothing but a perfect alliance of technology, economy, and ecology.”

    Hand-washing as a civic duty!
    SMIXIN manages to transform each hand-wash into a useful action, not just in terms of hygiene, but also towards water conservation. SMIXIN aims at helping people save nearly 10 billion litres of water by 2022, by installing 250,000 systems worldwide.
    Highlighting the numerous advantages of COMPACT, the management of the Chez Rüfi Cafe said, “We are delighted to offer our clients with an optimal hand-washing solution, whilst also contributing to sustainability.”

    This is a realistic objective, that is successful in giving the promising results so far and that too, over a short period of time. SMIXIN products are already distributed in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Dubai, Iran, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Czech Republic, and the group will continue to expand in the coming years.

    About Smixin - the company reinventing hand-washing
    SMIXIN is a company with innovation in its DNA. Based out of Biel, Switzerland, the company aims at modernizing hand-washing to meet the needs of communities and public spaces. It has developed three pioneering models:
    • COMBI, a complete connected hand-washing unit with touch-screen, waste bin, water, soap, and paper dispenser.
    • COMPACT, a 2-in-1 connected tap that replaces the classic mixer tap and soap dispenser.
    • Water-only: arguably, at 0.7lt/min., the faucet with the lowest flow rate in the world without loss of hand-washing comfort

    This aptitude for coming up with ingenious practical concepts is not down to chance. Behind SMIXIN is Creaholic, a group of “professional inventors” with more than 30 years’ experience. The company is a proud employer of a team of 52 creative personalities who have contributed immensely to the development and commercialisation of over 800 projects.
