Grohe helps reduce water footprint in Egypt mosque
Great Amr Ibn El As Mosque has 43 mixers and 14 faucets replaced
As part of its Green Mosque initiative and in coordination with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs in the Egyptian capital Cairo, Grohe has replaced 43 mixers and 14 faucets in the Great Amr Ibn El As Mosque.
Mixers and faucets in the mosque's ablution rooms were replaced with Grohe products with adjustable flow limiters for the purpose of minimising water wastage during ablution. The new mixers have also been installed in the central courtyard area.
Representatives from the sanitary fittings firm provided training to the mosque's technical team on how to set up and use the new mixers. Both Grohe and the mosque management will continue to monitor the water meters inside the mosque in order to track the success of the installation.
This installation is part of the Grohe Green Mosque initiative, launched in the Middle East in 2009, as part of GROHE's global WaterCare campaign.
Amer A Hadi, Grohe's regional manager for Egypt & North Africa, said: "The Amr Ibn El As mosque is the first in Egypt to benefit from Grohe's ongoing Green Mosque initiative.
"The installation of our advanced faucets will aid in reducing water consumption and provide worshippers with easy to use facilities whilst performing ablution, and we hope to play our part in reducing the water footprint of in Egypt."
