Director of the Sustainability Energy and Environment Division (SEED) of Tecom Ali Bin Towaih reported: "This initiative comes as a part of our conservation programme that was launched last year with the aim of reducing water consumption by 30%. Sustainable development promotes the use of resources to meet our needs without depriving those of the future generations."

The Waterless No-Flush Urinals have the same appearance as regular fixtures and are connected to the standard waste lines; however they do not require the flush water supply lines.

Renewed Lighting Solutions reports that Tecom will make cost savings of 53.25% using the Waterless No-Flush Urinal compared to regular urinals. The urinals also allow possible credit of up to three LEED points.
