With water conservation in mind, Radisson Blu initiated a test of Diversey's Clax Advanced system.

Located in one of the driest areas on earth, water is especially scarce in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
- UAE per capita water consumption is much higher than other parts of the world, 360 L daily use of water per person
- 70% of water comes from costly desalinization
- 200L global daily use of water per person
With water conservation in mind, the Diversey team approached Radisson Blu to initiate a 4-month trial project in its Dubai Deira Creek hotel in the UAE. The hotel agreed to test the Diversey Clax Advanced system. Clax Advanced maintains high levels of cleaning while eliminating a rinse cycle and washing at lower temperatures that require less water and labor. Low temperature laundry washing uses less steam and electricity.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek testing showed that the Clax Advanced laundry solution significantly reduced water and energy consumption as well as the hotel’s carbon footprint — from growing and producing cotton linen, to lessening a very water, energy, and chemical intense process. • 26% less water
- 23% less steam
- 6% less electricity
- 10% less wash cycle times
- 26% less waste water
- 26% less CO2 emissions
