By outsourcing a hotel’s water management to a team of experts, hoteliers are free to concentrate on their core business
Water scarcity is a growing problem worldwide, and hotels, which typically have very high water demands, are facing increased pressure to reduce their water consumption.
According to the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, a hotel uses almost 400 gallons (1,500 L) of water per room per day. In water-scarce regions, this usage is typically significantly higher than that of local communities.
The water demands of hotels are not limited to water guests use for drinking, showering or bathing, and flushing toilets. Water is needed for cooking, dishwashing, housekeeping, laundry, watering landscaping, and for filling and topping up swimming pools and spas.
Wastewater generated by all of these activities has to be treated to ensure it poses no risk to the environment or public health before it’s discharged back into the environment.
While these demands can place severe pressure on water resources, they also present opportunities for hotels to save water as well as money.
On-Site Water Treatment Solutions
Fluence offers a range of advanced water treatment technologies that address the challenges associated with treating large volumes of water and wastewater whether in urban areas or remote locations.
Fluence’s NIROBOX™ modular desalination plants offer a cost-effective desalination solution for hotels and resorts located either near the coast or over brackish-water aquifers. Fluence can also provide NIROBOX™ models that can treat fresh water.
NIROBOX™ reverse osmosis plants use the most energy-efficient technologies available to make desalination more affordable than ever.
Treating wastewater to a quality suitable for reuse can help hotels save water and cut costs, and ultimately help them to become more economically and environmentally sustainable. For example, recycled wastewater can be used for irrigating landscaping like lawns and gardens, instead of using precious (and more expensive) potable water.
Fluence’s Aspiral™ is a packaged wastewater treatment solution featuring membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology packaged into standard shipping containers. This compact, modular solution offers an energy-efficient method of treating wastewater on-site. Aspiral™ offers primary and secondary water treatment, and tertiary wastewater treatment processes such as filtration and disinfection can be included as well.
Reusing wastewater offers several benefits for hotels. It provides a sustainable source of water, helps protect natural freshwater supplies and ecosystems, reduces the costs associated with water provision and wastewater disposal, minimizes environmental impact to the surrounding environment, and improves water sustainability for local communities.
Both the NIROBOX™ and Aspiral™ systems are compact units with a small footprint. Since they are modular, they can be used alone or in tandem, and capacity can easily be scaled up or down as needed by adding or removing units.
