Our “breathable sand” technology offers a simple, decentralized, water harvesting and storage solution, while also helping hoteliers drastically reduce the volume of water used for landscaping.”— Chandra Dake, CEO and Founder of Dake RechsandDUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, May 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Dake Rechsand, a Dubai-based company offering sustainable solutions in water conservation and desert farming, has showcased solutions that could help shape the future of UAE’s hospitality industry, as the due date for compliance with Dubai Tourism's Sustainability Board guidelines approaches. The company has pitched in with products and solutions that it believes address a key component of sustainability and carbon emissions in the hospitality industry: water use.
“The per capita water use in the UAE is already three times higher than the global average,” said Chandra Dake, CEO and Founder of Dake Rechsand. “The hospitality industry accounts for disproportionately high water usage – from laundering to landscaping. Additionally, since much of the UAE’s water supply is produced through desalination, involving unsustainable use of fossil fuels, it has embodied carbon at every stage, from procurement, to transportation, to end use,” he added.
The Middle East has had a limited choice of water sources. Scarce groundwater reserves, with high salinity, and limited re-use, have compounded local water security issues; and the arid climate makes landscaping irrigation-intensive.
