Rather than just throw leftover food out with the rubbish like most hotels across the world, the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort has put in a machine that creates compost from the food waste. Especially for a golf resort that needs continuous grounds keeping, this is a considerably smart addition to the Abu Dhabi resort

The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort and Spa has taken a giant step towards sustainability by recycling food waste into natural compost that can be added to the soil.

The hotel has installed a machine called the Waste Food Eater that can devour up to 600 kilograms of waste food at one go.

Sebastien Weyer, Director of Engineering, said the hotel recycles between 150 and 200kg of food generated by six restaurants daily, including the staff canteen that caters up to 250 people.
