2013: with the launch of ECOfree, Tonello takes denim ozone treatment to the next level.
2017: four years later, Tonello comes back to revolutionise the market with the latest evolution of its most avant-garde technology, even more efficient and higher performing.

An ecological process: lower consumption of electricity and water; shorter processing times; purification costs reduced to a minimum; absolute safety for the operator and for the final consumer: these are, very briefly, the benefits of the new ECOfree 2 that we detail below:

– 3 systems in one: washing machine able to treat with ozone in air and in water. This results in greater flexibility
– With the combination of both processes, ozone in the air and in the water, and traditional washes, new effects are obtained.
