Nearly 60 million litres of water were conserved in 2019 thanks to waterless car wash services at Emirates Transport (ET), it was reported.
The savings were achieved as a result of using eco-friendly wash methods, rather than the traditional means, when providing washing services to nearly 463,000 vehicles during last year.
Eng. Amer Al Harmoudi, executive director of the Auto Services Division at ET, said: “the Dry Wash Unit is a shining example of the Corporation’s green investment projects. The Unit contributed to saving tens of millions of litres of water that would have been used in traditional washing operations.”
Al Harmoudi also stated that the Unit’s volume of work saw an 80% increase in the number of washing operations carried out in 2019, compared to the previous year, when there were only 238,000 car wash services.
The executive director of Auto Services added that the dry car wash project has a positive environmental and economic impact, by using minimal volumes of water, compared to the average 100 litres of water usually required to wash each vehicle using the standard washing process.
Al Harmoudi also said the dry wash service also includes polishing, which provides long-term protection to the car through nanotechnology, a technology that contributes to the cleaning, polishing and protection of the vehicle and is considered as one of the best global practices in this filed, as it uses environmentally friendly materials that do not cause damage to the vehicle.
The dry wash service is characterized by the use of environmentally friendly materials in accordance with the environmental specifications and requirements such as the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
