Reducing Waste

Being eco-friendly is a double benefit – saving operational costs as well as reducing environmental impact. World Dryer’s models help businesses and organisations to reduce waste and costs year on year by removing the need for paper towels.

Having paper hand towel facilities is a big strain on both the planet and costs. Did you know, for example that producing paper towels is twice as energy-intensive as the use of hand dryers?

To produce a ton of recycled paper consumes 7,000 gallons of water and 158 million BTUs of energy – with 60 lbs of pollutants released into the atmosphere.

If you take a single hand dryer, it will produce nearly two-thirds less greenhouse gases than the paper towel facility it replaces – 1.6 tons of CO2 compared to 4.6 tons of CO2 generated in paper towel production.

It’s true that paper towels can be produced with recycled sources, but they cannot be recycled themselves, which creates millions of cubic feet of landfill waste. A typical school with 30 hand dryers will save 17 trees’ worth of paper towels per year.


Studies have shown that hand dryers are equally effective when measuring hygiene as other drying methods. You may have heard stories about air bacterial contamination but these do not stand up when fully investigated.

World Dryer is continually testing, developing and adopting the safest and most effective technologies. For example, Steritouch® silver ion technology deployed in World Dryer products is shown under strict testing conditions to be effective against commonly known pathogens like E Coli, and MRSA.

This technology ensures that means that World Dryer products have an effective shield against bacteria, mould, mildew and fungi.

HEPA filtration

In addition, the World Dryer VERDEdri features a HEPA filter, which is a clever piece of technology that shields against bacteria, and is at least 99.97% effective in filtering particles and micro-organisms up to 0.3 microns in size from the air passing through the hand dryer.

The HEPA filter also improves efficiency and drying times, which help to further improve all-round sanitation.
