At CMS Berlin 2019, the Newcomer Stand, which is sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economics and Energy, features German start-ups in the cleaning industry.
For Fabian Forst, general manager of the Auconic company, a visit to CMS two years ago was the starting point for the development of a cleaning robot. His ClearBot prototype has been designed for working at height to clean building facades. It provides for thorough cleaning while also conserving water.
The invention by Martin Konietzky of res-bona International GmbH is already finding use in Austria in regional trains as well as in nursery schools. With a tip made of rolled up cellulose his WC Sauber Stab (Clean Stick) has been designed to clean toilet bowls, where it can subsequently be flushed away. The plastic rod by which it is held uses silver-ion technology to prevent any contamination by germs.
Heinz Kersten has developed the three-component Geysir hot water / hot steam system as an environmentally friendly means of clearing weeds from paths. A single rod or a number of them are used to carry out this treatment, depending on the size of the area. Water at a temperature of 110 degrees C destroys the protein structure of the plants and inhibits their growth, without the need for pesticides.
