Spülbar mobile dish-washing
The “Spülbar” is a mobile dish-washing station, consisting of an industrial dishwasher on a cargo bike. Students following the master’s degree Sustainability, Society and the Environment at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, Germany, designed the project, which made it possible to use reusable coffee cups and plates at the local farmers’ market.
The water needed by the dishwasher comes from portable canisters, which means the “Spülbar” is completely mobile and autonomous. The Kiel waste management company had sponsored 100 coffee cups for the project. The project therefore has its own coffee cups but also offers to wash returnable cups from the participating market stalls.
