Premier Travel Inn Choose Waterscan’s Sustainable Greywater

Posted: Wednesday 2nd July 2008

Waterscan are enabling Premier Travel Inn to considerably reduce their water consumption and meet stringent new energy efficiency targets through the installation of their innovative ARC60B

Greywater Recovery System. Recovery of greywater is ideally suited to Premier Travel Inn as it can reduce water consumption by up to 20% by reusing water from baths and showers to flush the hotel’s toilets.

The ARC60B, commissioned by Premier Travel Inn, is one example of greywater management technology, which has recently been added to the UK Government’s ‘Water Technology List’. Managed by Envirowise and the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the programme provides practical environmental advice to businesses including details of the enhanced capital allowance (ECA) programme.

At an exciting time in Waterscan’s development, Spring 2008 will see the coming together of new environmentally sustainable water technologies, such as the ARC60B, and new business opportunities with the employment of Claire Holmes as Waterscan’s’ new Business Development

Manager. Claire has considerable experience in the water industry, having previously been employed as a Water Division Head for an energy management company. During that time she was responsible for setting the water division as an entirely new service and developing it into a key sector of the business.

Claire said “I am very excited about promoting the new environmentally sustainable water technologies being developed by Waterscan including their innovative greywater recovery systems.” The ARC60B unit is designed to provide 3000 litres of water per day and is used at Doncaster’s Premier Travel Inn, where it supplies the daily requirements of 60 guests. Greywater is defined as “originally… wholesome water, but has already been used for some other application such as bathing or laundry (but not water from WC’s or from dish washing).”
