This Washing Machine Filter From Xeros Helps Stop Microfibres Polluting the Ocean General—16 Jul 20

SHEFFIELD England--16 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest
A new washing machine filter from the UK company Xeros Technology Group could help solve the issue of microfibre pollution from laundry, according to new research.
XFiltra(TM) from Xeros has been identified as the most effective device at preventing microfibres being released from washing machines.

Every time clothes are washed, microfibres are produced when tiny fragments break off, with many ending up polluting rivers and oceans. Synthetic fibres like nylon or polyester are a type of microplastic. Up to 700,000 microfibres can be released from a single load of laundry.

Research conducted by the University of Plymouth tested six devices designed to capture microfibres: three washing machine filters plus laundry bags and balls, on mixed wash loads of synthetic and synthetic / cotton blend garments.

XFiltra, which is designed to be installed in washing machines by manufacturers, performed best, consistently capturing 78% of all microfibres. In separate, independently verified testing, using only synthetic garments, XFiltra captured more than 90% of microplastic fibres.

Other devices tested by Plymouth did not perform as well. The second-best product reduced microfibre release by 54% and the next-best filter device caught just 29% of microfibres. Full data is published in the journal Science of the Total
