AbstractMainstream has vast experience in water purification, reverse osmosis, and water treatment. We also have experience in NASA spacecraft laundry and personal shower cleaning techniques. This Phase I effort will investigate numerous new water purification and ultrasonic and related low-detergent cleaning techniques. This Phase I effort will include: a complete examination of all potential innovative waterless (or reusable water) cleaning techniques, a performance analysis (techniques, cost, manufacturability, logistical impact, environmental impact, maintainability, reliability), the development of a preliminary waterless clothes washer design, a limited proof-of-concept experiment (during Phase I) and the creation of a Phase II and Phase III military and commercialization plan for the selected waterless clothes washing concept.
