An average of 2.2 tons of glass waste per hotel was recovered in 2016. If this glass waste is used in production, 315 kg of carbon dioxide emissions are prevented for every one ton of newly produced glass
An average of 1.6 tons of metal waste per hotel was recovered in 2016. As a result of recycling one ton of metal waste, 1,300 kg of raw material is preserved.
An average of 1.5 tons of plastic waste per hotel was recovered during 2016. As a result of recycling one ton of plastic packing waste, energy savings of 14,000 KWH are achieved. Our hotel, Barut Sensatori Sorgun , has the most extensive greywater treatment system of Turkey’s tourism sector…
Water from hand basins and showers in the hotel is collected, purified, and used in garden irrigation with the greywater treatment system established in line with a project by Tubitak and the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. The capacity of our system is 100 m3/day; therefore, 100,000 litres of grey water are purified per day and can safely be reused. The studies show that an average of 110 litres of grey water per day are produced by each guest.
Solar panels are available in Barut B Suites, Barut Lara, Barut Arum, Barut Hemera, and Barut Sorgun Sensatori, and a portion of the hot water needs are provided from these panels. In this way, we save an average of 5% in natural gas consumption in these hotels.
BRAND REPRESENTATIVE OF RESPECT FOR TRADITION
he summer period relievo (all dimensions of a building), restitution (chronologically documenting the additions according to its original design) and restoration (repair) works began at the Side Nymphaeum (Monumental Fountain). The relievo, restoration, and restitution works in the Monumental Fountain are being carried out with the contribution of General Directorate of Cultural Heritage and Museums of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TÜRSAB) and Barut Hotels. The restoration and restitution works at the Nymphaeum, at Side’s entrance, will be ongoing for five years within the framework of the History Comes to Light project. The spectacular Roman architecture will be restored with these works, carried out in three sections. There are nine fountains in the Nymphaeum. These fountains are the symbol of the physical and spiritual cleansing of Side as the city entered its Roman period: visitors to the city could wash their feet at nine different fountains. When this work is completed, the Roman-era city entrance gate and the nine gorgeous fountains will be seen again.
Barut Hotels, which supports the restoration works through their completion, carries the mission of testifying, as a brand, to these monuments, respecting the past and cultural history to bring Side into the global agenda.
