Encore launches water saving cisterns.
Encore claim that the 541 hotels planned to open in the Middle East would save over two billion litres of water every year if they install Encore cisterns.
Showcasing its solutions at the Hotel Show in Dubai - Encore claims that it's cisterns are the world's first that use condensate from air conditioning units to flush the toilet - it would save an additional 13,140 litres of water per room annually compared to using a conventional cistern.
David Davis, technical director, Encore said: "Each hotel would save 3.86 million litres every year based on occupancy levels of 80%. When multiplied by 541 - the number of new hotels planned to be built in the Middle East by 2020 - 2.08 billion litres a year would be saved.
The figures are based on the average temperature being 36[degrees]C and humidity at 58%.
Davis added: "Encore is a global product ideally suited to hot and humid conditions like those in the Middle East because the air conditioning units generate so much condensate."
Encore cisterns also provide an additional two LEED points and two BREEAM credits that have not been possible before.
Encore holds 18 litres of water, which is three times more than a conventional cistern but its dual-chamber design means it still fits like standard models.
