Innovative technology from the Rabmer Group reduces operating costs in Ronald McDonald Children's Aid Homes by 35,000 euros

"Building a better world": under this motto, the five Ronald McDonald Children's Aid homes (see info box for details) will use the innovative ECOTURBINO product over the next five years to save around EUR 35,000 and 70 tons of CO2 will be saved.

(Vienna, 12.02.2020 ) This innovative technology was provided free of charge and installed in the existing Ronald McDonald Children's Houses by the Rabmer Group. "Under the motto 'Building a better world', we regularly support charitable projects. We are delighted that thanks to our ECOTURBINOS, the Ronald McDonald Children's Aid Homes will now be able to reduce their operating costs by around 35,000 euros over the next five years and thus have more money available for the renovation and further expansion of the homes. At the same time, this measure will reduceCO2 emissions by 70 tons over the same period and thus also make a significant contribution to climate protection," explains Ulrike Rabmer-Koller, Managing Partner of the Rabmer Group.

Innovation from Upper Austria

Around a third of all water consumption in households is used for showers and personal hygiene alone - so saving water pays off here. However, conventional energy-saving shower heads have one major disadvantage: less water also means less showering comfort. Rabmer's patented ECOTURBINO technology offers a solution - a small turbine, which can be installed quickly and easily by anyone, generates a highly turbulent water-air mixture that saves around 36% water and energy and therefore also costs - without reducing the intensity of the shower jet and therefore showering comfort.

Responsibility towards the environment

"We are financed exclusively by donations and every euro goes directly to the cause. Ronald McDonald Children's Aid helps as many families as possible. Thanks to new technologies such as ECOTURBINO, we are able to save costs and thus help even more children and their parents. By saving water, energy and CO2, Ronald McDonald Children's Aid is also taking responsibility for the environment," says Karin Schmidt, CEO of Ronald McDonald Children's Aid Austria.

About the Ronald McDonald Children's Charity:

To get well, seriously ill children need one thing above all: the closeness of their family. Ronald McDonald Children's Aid has been fulfilling this heartfelt wish of young patients for more than 33 years. Every year, it offers around 1,200 affected families a "temporary home" in the immediate vicinity of specialist and children's clinics in Vienna, Graz, Salzburg and Innsbruck for the duration of their children's treatment. Two further children's aid homes are planned for the coming years: in Salzburg directly on the LKH grounds and in Innsbruck directly opposite the Medical University. To make this possible, Ronald McDonald Children's Aid is dependent on donations. Anyone wishing to provide financial support can transfer an amount to the Ronald McDonald Children's Aid donation account - or donate easily and securely online at www.kinderhilfe.at. Ronald McDonald Children's Aid was awarded the Austrian Donation Seal of Approval back in 2009. Since then, the award, which is valid for one year at a time, has always been renewed. Donations are tax-deductible.
