Delta Hotels by Marriott in Dubai Uses Technology to Transform Humidity in the Air Into Drinking Water
The hotel currently has two AirOWater Atmospheric Water Generators (AWG) units, which produce a range of 500 to 1,000 liters of water in one day, enough to cover all of the property's drinking water requirements.

The United Arab Emirates, known for its opulent cities and extravagant resorts, may give the impression that water scarcity is not a concern. However, the reality is that the country faces a serious depletion of its water resources. According to a report from the Emirates Industrial Bank, the UAE has the highest per capita water consumption in the world.
Over the past thirty years, the water table in the region has declined by about one meter per year, putting the UAE on track to exhaust its natural freshwater resources in just fifty years.
To help address the problem, Delta Hotels by Marriott in Dubai Investment Park has launched a sustainability initiative aimed at transforming humidity in the air into sustainable drinking water for hotel guests. The technology, build by India-based AirOWater, is designed to target the global shortage of clean drinking water and replace plastic by providing an innovative and sustainable solution to the increasing demand for fresh drinking water.
The hotel’s collaboration with AirOWater aligns with the brand’s stated commitment to sustainability and its pillar of providing free bottled water to guests. As a result of this collaboration, Delta Hotels by Marriott, Dubai Investment Park, will be the first Marriott International property in the Middle East to work with AirOWater.
