Envac Middle East
Project status
UAE / Hotel

Envac’s system consolidates waste into one container which is removed and replaced once per week. When compared to conventional waste collection practices, which require daily collection, the use of Envac’s system results in an 80% reduction in waste collection vehicle trips.

The Ibn Battuta Gate complex is a mixed use development whose iconic arch entrance greets visitors as they approach.

Envac designed, built and now operates and maintains one system that collects mixed waste from the 396 room Mövenpick Hotel.

Over the last 6 years solid waste has been collected via two inlets and 250 meters of Ø400mm pipeline strategically located within the hotel building. The Envac system efficiently and hygienically removes solid waste and consolidates it at the onsite collection station.

The collection container is collected once a week, an 80% reduction when compared to conventional waste collection practices.
