  4. 4. company profileS Delegate: Michelle Khalatian Vice President, Latin America Tel: 310.209.7241 Falcon Waterfree Technologies 2255 Barry Ave. Los Angeles, CA
90064 Falcon is the leading waterless urinal system provider in the world. On average, each Falcon Waterfree urinal saves up to 40,000 gallons (151,000 liters) or more of fresh water per year. Since the system is waterless, no energy is used to source, transport or treat this water. Falcon Waterfree urinals do not produce carbon dioxide emissions as a byproduct of its treatment. Finally, by reducing total load on treatment plants, the waterless urinal system can reduce the need for costly water treatment capacity and reduce the incidence of overflow events at treatment facilities. Falcon Waterfree urinals are also economically advantageous. Each Falcon Waterfree urinal saves 100 percent of the water flowing through traditional flush urinals, and therefore, 100 percent of the water and related sewer charges. There is very little maintenance cost on a waterless urinal, as there are no moving parts and no flushometer.
