""The ozone does the washing," said Eden, who estimated that three 80-pound commercial washers, each armed with the company's $500-$1,000 device, would save a 400-room hotel $25,000 a year, cutting its washing costs in about half."
The article didn't get into specifics of the technology, but it has been used in wastewater treatment in the past. When using ozone to disinfect water, you also have to "remove" any residual ozone before sending the effluent out into the plumbing. Ozone is very reactive and will degrade pipes over a period of time. These commercial entities may find a need to replace plumbing and washer drums after a few years use of the system.
They may be better off using a solar hot water system to supplement their hot water use and not have to worry about the plumbing.
