- PRESS RELEASE
Water conservation expert VERTECO, has been awarded certification by Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) for its Waterless Urinal system.
Launched in the UAE three years ago, the retrofit Waterless Urinal system, able to save up to 152,00 litres of water per year, has already been installed in numerous locations in Abu Dhabi, including Danat Hotels & Resorts, Le Meridien Hotel and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club amongst many other prestigious properties.
"We take great pride in our achievement of recognition by the QCC through their Water Efficient Fixtures Conformity Scheme, and commend the QCC on their vision and initiative in identifying and accrediting water saving products. The production of desalinated water consumes a great amount of energy and also has a detrimental effect on our marine life and the environment. With a severe lack of groundwater the need for us to preserve our natural resources for future generations and to build a sustainable economy is an important issue for companies and individuals alike." commented David King, General Manager MENA region.
King commented further "Many companies are keen to contribute to the effort helping the nation reduce water consumption, but there is an additional benefit for the organisation; saving water saves money. As well as our waterless urinal solution, VERTECO has a full range of other water conservation products and also provides organisations with comprehensive water audit services. These audits help companies identify areas of water consumption and waste, and offer practical solutions to reduce and minimise over consumption and ultimately save money."
Director of Product Conformity Services, Salem bin Khaled Al Qassimi, commented "The Water Fixtures Conformity Scheme identifies products that not only meet our rigorous quality standards, but also meet the Abu Dhabi's Urban Planning Council's sustainability criteria."
Al Qassimi continued, "We are pleased to bestow our Trustmark to VERTECO in recognition for their Waterless Urinal. The product conforms to the highest quality standards and meets our criteria for hygiene and sustainability without exception.
