The initiative encourages the use of environmentally friendly cleaning machines and in particular water efficient scrubber dryers. In short it encourages businesses to invest in water saving technology.

Manufacturers Nilfisk have been working with ICCMA and DEFRA to define the scheme.

The ECA scheme (enhanced capital allowance) allows businesses to claim the whole cost of the qualifying equipment against corporation tax in the first year.

For larger Companies this allows them to save 28% in the form of a tax allowance.
