Ramada Ajman improves waste management scheme
Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman installs new WasteStation dewaterer and macerator machine as part of its waste management scheme
Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman is set to increase its current food waste management scheme through the installation of a new WasteStation machine, a press statement has revealed.
In addition to the hotel’s existing compost machine which converts its food waste into fertilisers, the newly-installed machine will further simplify the process and cut down the labour.
Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman general manager Iftikhar Hamdani commented: “We are proud to be again, the first to have an in-house food waste macerator and dewaterer. We thank IMC for providing us an opportunity to use an advanced system; an existing compost machine has already been in place, but this WasteStation will help improve and hasten the process and increase efficiency in our waste management scheme.”
The WasteStation has a capacity of processing 700 kg of food waste per hour and reduces the process of converting the waste into fertilisers from 24 hours to just 12 hours.
Imperial Machine Company vice president for international sales – GCC Matt Roberts said: “IMC is honoured to partner with Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, as they are the pioneer in hotel waste management system here in the UAE. We are confident that our collaboration with them will encourage other companies and establishments to step up their food waste disposal procedure, and help them save time and costs, and at the same time, benefit the environment.”
The hotel reportedly generates an average of 360 kg of kitchen waste daily, including fruit and vegetable peels and food scraps, among others.
