AuuM - An ecological alternative to disposable cups thanks to steam cleaning.

One big way to beat the plastics domination is to change the demand for a new system that works even better. AuuM aims to spread the idea that “throw-away is the old way” and that reusing and refilling are better for the environment, better for business, and way more fun.

AuuM is a machine to clean and disinfect cups in 5 seconds with just 1cl of water ! Its heating technology has been developed to allow cleaning faster, cups are also made by the company. If the cups are mastered, it will be possible to develop the machine using the least energy. Steam cleaning allows degrowing without chemistry, and with a minimum of water. This solution is the most ecological cleaning process on the market. To reduce the use of cups especially in companies, it is necessary to have the machine as simple as possible, the most aesthetic possible, at a competitive price. We make cleaning fun, we provide a platform to monitor consumption and bring credibility to a CSR approach.
