Hilton Americas-Houston Installs Water Recycling System

by | May 19, 2010

Hilton Americas-Houston, a 24-story convention hotel in Houston, Texas with over 1200 guest rooms, plans to reduce its carbon emissions by 260 metric tons, according to a report in the Houston Business Journal. The reduction comes courtesy of a new AquaRecycle system for its laundry facility. According to the report, the new system will reduce the hotel’s monthly water usage from 630,000 gallons to 157,000 gallons, a decrease of 75%.

Water will be reused to help the system maintain its ideal operating temperature, reducing the hotel’s demand for natural gas.

Last year, Hilton Americas – Houston became the first hotel in Texas to receive Green Seal certification.
