OBS

Barrhead Cleaners, en Alberta, a remplacé leur machine traditionnelle de nettoyage à sec par une nouvelle machine à la fine pointe de la technologie. L'ancienne machine nécessitait un transfert manuel de vêtements humides vers l'unité de séchage, ce qui provoquait une perte de solvant, le perchloroéthylène, par évaporation.
