The situation before
Manual pot washing done in sinks and daily consumption of 8,051 litres of water.
The hotel had been evaluating options to upgrade from their existing 3-sink system that involves pre-washing, a time and resource-consuming method. Adding to that is the usual day-to-day task of keeping wet floors mopped dry and clean.
Dubai, located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, is a place where water stress levels are high due to increasing population and industrialization. Le Meridien Dubai Hotel and Conference Centre knew that water conservation have to be prioritized. Having looked at all viable options in the market they decided to try the No Pre-Washing concept from Granuldisk. The hotel's engineering team led by Mr. Butch Lim recorded water usage for 30 days through installed water meters. The solution from Granuldisk was then installed and measured for another month. The stewarding staff was told not to use the 3-sinks during the trial, for comparison.
