The article focuses on the increasing demand for pressure washing machines that are advanced enough to integrate each step of a complete environmental cleaning process into one system. This demand stems from difficulty in linking separate technologies together. Several companies have developed environmentally responsible equipment and some of them have managed to integrate washing, recovery and recycling processes into a single device.
