School takes the health of its students and sustainability seriously

Bienne, Switzerland, Dubai, UAE – December 15, 2017: Smixin AG, the innovative Swiss clean-tech company, announced that it has partnered with the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) to equip every student washroom and the canteen area of the school with the innovative and water-saving Smixin handwashing technology. SISD is committed to sustainability as well as to the health of its students. This is why it selected Smixin for its proven performance, benefits, and its high reliability.

Beat Sommer, Head of School said: “With the installation of the Smixin units, SISD is clearly in line with its ambition to establish itself at the forefront schools in the UAE, not only from an education and inclusiveness standpoint, but also in terms of sustainability. We are now providing our students with a fully compliant handwashing process whilst saving an estimated 1,000 litres of fresh water every day.”

Smixin products have been recently introduced in UAE and are already distributed in Switzerland, Germany, France, The Netherlands, the Czech Republic, India, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Indonesia. Its mission is to save 10 billion litres of water by 2021.

Jean-Michel Deckers, CEO of Smixin added: “Our aim is that our product becomes a standard equipment for Dubai and UAE. We provide a perfect hygiene and hand sanitation solution that only consumes 0.1 litre per handwashing cycle, meaning a saving of 90% of water versus a conventional faucet. Our supervision module, web- and cloud-based, is enabling any environment-driven facilities manager to achieve not only the highest level of user satisfaction but also to run the facility with an optimized cost base and full control on the hourly consumption.”
