Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman unveiled a reverse osmosis (RO) plant, which aims to recycle the hotel’s waste water by 60% and target annual savings worth $80,000 (AED290,000).

The hotel’s daily water supply is 67,000 gallons; 17,000 gallons go to waste due to high level of total dissolved solid (TDS). 

The hotel operations require at least 60,000 gallons of water per day, thus generating a supply deficit.

Through the new RO plant, approximately 10,000 gallons of waste water will be filtered and treated to bring down the TDS level and make the water suitable for use in the hotel’s gardens and urban farm, Ramada said. 

Iftikhar Hamdani, general manager of Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, commented: “This new RO plant will save us a huge amount of money as we have to spend almost AED800 per day to meet the daily water needs, on top of the supply which we receive from the Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA).

"Apart from the monetary benefit, this initiative entails impact on the precious use of water.

"We should always think ahead as we might wake up one day without clean water because of our inability to do take actions at an early stage.”  

The RO plant has been supplied by Al Waha Water Treatment Equipment in Ajman.
