Hansgrohe AG, the leading manufacturer of bathroom fittings and showerheads with flagship stores all across the GCC and the Middle East including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Saudi Arabia has launched its online savings calculator which demonstrates the environmental benefits and cost savings offered by the pioneer EcoSmart technology.
Mixers and showerheads fitted with EcoSmart consume up to 60 per cent less water than conventional products without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption also means a reduced energy requirement, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and lower costs.
This is an essential product for the Middle East and in particular the UAE, with Abu Dhabi claiming the highest per capita water consumption rate in the world last year at 525 - 600 gallons per day. The emirate’s total consumption of water resources exceeds its natural recharge capacity by 24 times.This increasing water usage across the Middle East leads to the extensive use of desalination and the high costs and energy requirements associated with the process. Middle East and North Africa energy-related CO2 emissions are set to double by 2030, primarily from water desalination and power generation.
