Italian term or phrase: lavanolo
Can anyone provide a correct translation for the term lavanolo? I understand it has to do with laundry services, but is it more than that? Would it be industrial laundry services or something along those lines?

Le tre aree strategiche di affari di XXX sono rappresentate dai servizi di ***lavanolo*** (88,9% fatturato ‘05), in cui la società è leader con una market share del 22,5% doppia rispetto al secondo player, dai servizi di sterilizzazione biancheria (7,3% fatturato ‘05) con una market share del 22,7% e dai servizi di sterilizzazione dello strumentario chirurgico (3,8% fatturato ‘05).
