Accor to create water out of thin air for its hotels

Water made purely from sunlight and air will be served as ultra-premium drinking water at select hotels in Singapore.

Each hydropanel that turns water vapour into pure drinking water can offset more than 50,000 plastic bottles.

Accor will soon be creating water out of thin air as it partners with SOURCE Global on harvesting water vapour and transforming it into premium drinking water.

Single-use plastic bottled water at select Accor properties in Singapore will be replaced with this water, packaged in reusable glass bottles. The water will be obtained from SOURCE Hyrdropanels which will extract the water vapour in the air to convert it into drinking water.

Each Hydropanel can offset more than 50,000 plastic bottles in its lifetime. The water will be delivered in reusable glass bottles, which will be collected, cleaned, and refilled near the SOURCE 'Water Farm'.

This groundbreaking sustainability initiative is part of Accor’s worldwide commitment to increase circularity in its operation and eliminate single-use plastics in the guest experience, aligned with the UN Global Tourism Plastics Initiative and the Resource Sustainability Bill passed by the Singaporean Government in 2019.
