New water purification system at Jordan centre
Dead Sea, April 7, 2014
King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton has installed a new environmentally-friendly water purification system, to mark World Water Day, which is held annually in March every year.
The plant, which is located next to the centre, will filter and refine rain water gathered from a dam in the hills close to the it using a reverse osmosis system, capable of removing impurities in the water via a series of membranes.
The distilled and cleaned water will then be re-used in the centre and at the upcoming Hilton Dead Sea Resort and Spa, which is scheduled to open later this year.
The project will save up to 30 per cent of the annual water consumption and will also be safely used for irrigation, washing, toilet flushing and construction activities.
Garabid Bedivian, director of engineering, Hilton KHBTCC, said: “This project reflects our commitment to Hilton Worldwide’s “Living Sustainably” campaign. We are true believers that sustainable practices deliver great guest experiences and help protect the world in which we live. I expect this project to deliver significant environmental benefits for the company and also for the surrounding landscape as we help conserve one of Jordan’s most precious resources.” - TradeArabia News Service
