Whirlpool launched an eco friendly kitchen concept for the future. The concept behind is based on the energy circuit in the nature, applied on the kitchen appliances and furniture. The amount of resources used is smaller than for a normal kitchen, the savings one can make being around 24%. For example: the fridge works 24h a day; it produces heat and can be used to heat up water for the dishwasher.
Also, the appliances have maximized energy use and re-use so that you can save money and save the planet.
I may say it's a good idea but I should see it at work. The concept can be applied for big spaces where you can have all the system arranged. But how about the small places? Can the system really work for smaller living spaces, for an over grown world population and urban areas? Time will tell.
