Miele took the opportunity during IFA 2023 to introduce the HyClean Pure vacuum cleaner bag. Created with 80% recycled material, it not only filters out 99.99% of dust but also takes a significant step towards sustainability. It’s the highest recycled content Miele has ever had in a vacuum bag.
The 80% recycled material content doesn’t compromise its performance or filtration quality. This advancement marks a significant stride in Miele’s dustbag business, which welcomed Belgian manufacturer Eurofilters in 2022.
The bag’s design, featuring a darker seam, reflects the higher recycled plastic proportion. While it reduces filtration layers from six to eight down to five, it maintains seam and collar quality – both also constructed from recycled materials. Despite using less random-spun material, the bag still achieves 99.99% filtration and a larger 3.4-liter capacity.
A new water jet charging technology during random-spun material production contributed to this achievement — This hydrocharging technique eliminates the need for additional fine filtration layers, securely containing dust, allergens, and debris within the bag. Customers can also look forward to the HyClean Pure’s packaging, crafted entirely from recycled paper:
Miele is in the process of certifying the ‘Blauer Engel’ (‘Blue Angel’), a respected environmental certification awarded by the German government. This certification validates the HyClean Pure vacuum bag’s environmental sustainability and functionality. The award is expected in two months. The transition to HyClean Pure bags begins in October for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, followed by Europe and Asia in January 2024.
This new bag generation is compatible with a wide range of Miele vacuum cleaner models. The product will be available in October, coming across the DACH region — Central European countries of Germany (D), Austria (A), and Switzerland (CH) —, with more countries to follow. The price was not yet disclosed.
