Cardinal words: Sustainable ; Issues ; Challenges ; Trends ; Hospitality Industry
7.2 Sustainability, Tourism & A ; Hospitality:
The construct of sustainable development was ab initio taken in the context of the societal indexs and thenceforth expanded to turn to the environmental indexs. The World Commission on Environment and Development ( The Brundtland Commission ) popularised the construct of sustainable development in 1987. We may specify sustainable development as: ‘Development that meets the demands of the present without compromising the ability of future coevalss to run into their ain demands. ‘ World Tourism Organisation ( UNWTO ) has mentioned that Sustainable touristry development meets the demands of present tourers and host parts, while protecting and heightening chances for the hereafter. It is envisaged as taking to direction of all resources in such a manner that economic, societal and aesthetic demands can be fulfilled, while keeping cultural unity, indispensable ecological procedures, biological diverseness and life support systems.
The dimensions of sustainability encompasses of following elements:
competency direction ;
fiscal direction ;
operational public presentation ;
merchandise public presentation.
stakeholder direction ; and
sustainable direction ;
Sustainability patterns are going progressively common and the issues refering to sustainability hold become an indispensable portion of the societal and political treatments in most of the states. These yearss many of the little concerns have to fight for endurance in a universe of competitions with cardinal participants, amalgamations and mega corporations. There is a strong impulse for sustainable development and therefore demand of engagement of all stakeholders including local communities. Further there is a strong demand for educating the immature people on the environmental issues and transfusing the values in their heads so as to do the universe a better topographic point in which to populate.
The construct of sustainability in the Hotel Industry:
The cordial reception industry is bit by bit going one of the great illustrations of why running a sustainable concern will be important for long-run success. Defined at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro as ‘meeting the demands of the present without compromising the ability of future coevalss to run into their ain demands ‘ , sustainability is progressively going one of the most relevant issues to hotelkeepers in the twenty-first century as costs continue to lift, demand becomes progressively sensitive and the force per unit area on being economically, socially and environmentally responsible grows.
Due to the turning environmental debasement, society is forced to go progressively cognizant of the demand of following and implementing more effectual steps of environmental protection. Sustainable development, including the development of a more sustainable built environment, has therefore become a precedence and a challenge of our clip. A figure of surveies indicate that the hotel industry has an of import duty in this procedure. The planetary hotel industry, consisting of assorted installations, constitutes one of the most of import sectors of the touristry industry. Hotels provide adjustment and offer high degree of resources for use ( including energy, H2O, consumables ) in hotel installations, the environmental footmark of hotels is typically larger than those of other types of edifices of same size. Research has revealed that the hotels are big users of consumer goods ; waste coevals is one of the more seeable impacts the hotel industry has on the environment. Harmonizing to an IHEI ( 2002 ) estimation, a typical hotel green goodss in surplus of 1 kilogram of waste per guest-day, which, for a typical installation, consequences in many dozenss of waste each month. These figures clearly reflect that there is an pressing demand for more environmentally sound patterns and merchandises in the hotel industry.
Over the old ages, there has been an increased environmental consciousness among the general populace and the development of the construct of “ green consumerism ” has flourished. Where, most of the hotels in the recent yesteryear were paying attending to environmental duty it has is now progressively emerged as a corporate issue.
However, in order to accomplish greater environmental duty, proper execution tools and schemes are necessary. The instruments of action include the enforcement of relevant Torahs and ordinances ( wellness and safety demands, planning and edifice ordinances, H2O use, waste coevals and the release of emanations ) , every bit good as voluntary criterions. Certification and labelling strategies are progressively turning in popularity. Further, the authoritiess, NGO ‘s, Academic Communities are coming up to help hotelkeepers in running more environmentally responsible concerns. As a affair of fact many good hotel ironss have besides developed their faculties and have practiced advanced patterns. Significantly, the research survey by Centre for Hospitality Research, Cornell University ( 2010 ) & A ; ( 2012 ) by Glenn Withiam & A ; Rohit Verma in Hotel Year Book 2012 highlighted on Sustainability mentioning “ clients ‘ demand for sustainable hotel operations has taken root and expanded. The hotel industry has taken notice, as demonstrated by a push for consistent coverage criterions and industry best patterns coming from our industry roundtables in both Asia and North America. In that respect, run intoing contrivers and corporate contrivers are now bespeaking that hotels provide sustainability-related information ( such as energy usage or recycling policies ) . Third-party enfranchisement of green claims has become an of import portion of sustainability coverage, as demonstrated for case by Travelocity ‘s Green Hotel Directory, which does non acknowledge self-certified hotels. ”
Hotels are extremely dependent on fiscal public presentation and have to bank upon increased demand and cut downing the costs for endurance. Sustainable patterns can look selfless to the invitee, casting a positive visible radiation on a hotel. Besides, when applied right they are by and large cost-efficient with short periods of payback. The hotels who implement such steps are by and large financially sound as costs are recovered in a short clip and many a times frequently the long-run nest eggs are great. However, merely a little per centum of bing hotels have sustainability at the nucleus of their concern modus operandi that besides in organized sector.
There are many benefits for a hotel with sustainable concern patterns:
– Additional gross through lower costs.
– Cost salvaging through cost-reduction steps.
– Easier funding because of lower long-run hazard.
– Greater attraction to loaners.
– Greater long-run fiscal stableness.
– Increased plus value because of long-run concern capableness.
– Long-run ability to remain in concern and be profitable.
7.3 Trends & A ; challenges of the industry:
Due to increased consciousness on the turning environmental debasement, society is going cognizant of the demand of following and implementing more effectual steps of environmental protection. Sustainable development has become a cardinal precedence and a challenge of clip. The issue of sustainability demands to be addressed at different degrees, in cooperation with academe, industry, policy shapers, the general populace and other stakeholders. The hotel industry has an of import duty in this procedure. The survey by Wang Jin – zhao and Wang zing ( Shenyang University – China ) in the Journal of Management Science & A ; Engineering ( 2009 ) in has highlighted in the article issues, challenges & A ; tendencies, that confronting Hospitality Industry has been taken in this chapter and as under
7.3.1 Issues in Hospitality
Green Hospitality: Sustainable Development Calls for green cordial reception. Traveling green is a burgeoning issue in the cordial reception industry. Peoples are acute to look at sustainable solutions in a whole new manner. There has been a alteration in the perceptual experience of green ; it has gone from a periphery motion to mainstream. As a mark of its gaining popularity, one of the apprehended enterprises in India is Welcom Environment Programme by ITC Welcom Group of Hotels in add-on to others. Across the Earth assorted conferences on cordial reception are being held. The footing of sustainable cordial reception operation is a three-part balance, expressed as “ net incomes, people, and planet. ” By taking those three elements into history, therefore, a sustainable green cordial reception development plan becomes economically feasible, every bit good as good to the community and environment.
Higher Education: Enormous alterations are taking topographic point in cordial reception industry which poses several challenges for transmutation of the whole educational procedure including educational course of study, larning stuffs, instructional patterns and instruction stakeholders. This includes reconstituting the acquisition procedure to reflect the usage of information in the existent universe, altering the function of the pedagogue from presenter of pre-packaged facts to facilitator of active acquisition and transforming the library specializer to an active confederate in course of study planning for effectual usage and handiness of information resources. Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India is supplying Hospitality & A ; Tourism Education through National Council of Hotel Management, Indian Institute of Travel & A ; Tourism Management and interestingly is Broad Biasing Hospitality & A ; Tourism Education through Central Financial Assistance Scheme by giving a direct grant of Rupees Two Crores to each University for offering cordial reception programmes under this strategy. In 2012 about 22 universities in India have been benefited and many more are likely to acquire. Indeed, pedagogues need to animate new aspirers and pitch them for industry demands. The new educational suppliers have besides been offering the undeniable demand for unfastened, flexible, distance and e- acquisition ; with universe category universities like IGNOU offering Hospitality & A ; Tourism Programmes, as coaction undertaking NCHMCT & A ; MOT, Govt. Of India ; and province universities like Uttarakhand Open University and others are advancing Hospitality & A ; Tourism Programmes making to the unapproachable. Similarly organisations like AHLA, whose primary concern is non education but who installations to it with its educational institute.
Labour Cost Issues: Labour disbursals continue to stay amongst the big disbursal points for cordial reception directors, accounting about about 40- 45 per centum of entire operating costs. Therefore, any tendency or issue that could potentially impact labour costs demands to be taken earnestly by cordial reception proprietors and directors likewise. “ Due to the magnitude of the disbursal, labor costs and issues have ever consumed a significant part of the clip and attempts of cordial reception directors. The cost of labor is the biggest disbursal in all classs of hotels. Even with the coming of select-service belongingss, cordial reception developers can non avoid the human constituent of cordial reception operations. While pull offing labour disbursals is of import, cordial reception directors besides needs to be cognizant that employees are an built-in portion of the cordial reception experience. The interaction between cordial reception invitees and employees has a important impact on the client experience and the success of the concern operation. Therefore, a all right balance must be drawn between cost controls and guest satisfaction.
Multicultural Issues: The newest tendencies and subjects environing cordial reception research and development is the direction of multicultural endowment in the cordial reception industry. With the development of globalisation, multicultural issues are confronting and upseting the industry operators. Bringing the far corners of the universe together is portion and package of what the cordial reception sector does. Blending comfortss to provide for the demands of the universe ‘s different civilizations is cardinal to success for big, international cordial reception ironss. Cultural issues have ne’er earlier been such a important determiner of how a big cordial reception should run. In some Asiatic civilizations, for illustration, oculus contact is non sought, as it can do invitees experience uncomfortable, while in Western tradition it is equated with openness and honestness. This could be of import in specifying how staff addresses themselves to certain Asiatic invitees.
7.3.2 Challenges facing the Hospitality Industry: The assorted sorts of challenges confronted by the Hospitality Industry revolves around Economic Issues, Operating Issues, Marketing Issues and Technological Issues
Human Resources: Deficits of human resources and their impact on the industry in about every geographic location are systematically among the most hard challenges noted by hotelkeepers. In many communities, cordial reception enlargement is limited non by capital, but instead by human resources. A shriveling labour force is the figure one challenge confronting the planetary cordial reception industry, harmonizing to the International Society of Hospitality Consultants, which late convened to brainstorm universe issues and rank them harmonizing to importance. The job of pulling and retaining qualified workers, one time an issue merely in an stray figure of markets, is progressively going a planetary challenge. Demography, pay degrees, failure to adequately address worker satisfaction and a repute for long hours and low wage are wholly cited as lending factors. Creative cordial reception professionals have begun to develop advanced schemes for capturing and maintaining high quality workers. In India itself the research study by HVS International cites that ongoing demand for human resources is 3,20,000 and the trained manpower supply is 12,000 yearly through Govt. Institutes of Hotel Management. The Prime Minister ‘s National Skill Development Council has articulated a vision that touristry sector will use extra 5 million skilled individuals by 2022. Recognizing the increasing importance of Tourism as an built-in portion of economic and developmental policy of India Ministry of Tourism Govt. of India has received the 12th Plan Allocation in Rupees 15,190 crore which is a significant addition over its 11th Plan size of Rupees 5156 crore. In order to run into the turning demands of Human Resources, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India has launched Hunar se Rozgar Programme with a mark to develop 1,07,800 people in 2016-17 against preparation of 53,800 forces in 2012-13 for the trade of Hospitality & A ; Tourism.
Cost Containment: Cordial receptions are progressively challenged to happen ways to cut down costs without giving the quality criterions imposed to systematically run into guest outlooks. The thought of “ making more with lupus erythematosus ” requires directors to believe about ways to run more efficaciously ( in other words to “ make the right things in the right manner ” ) and to analyze possibilities for cost nest eggs that will non impact the invitee ‘s perceptual experience of value.
Increased Competition: Hotels everyplace indicate that their community is overbuilt ; there are excessively many available cordial reception suites relative to the invitees wanting to lease them. The ensuing competition, which frequently involves monetary value cutting in attempts to supply greater value to invitees, educes still further the net incomes generated. A steep autumn in tenancy ratio in the aftermath of the planetary lag and tight competition among cordial reception operators in a shriveling market hold brought down cordial reception room rents drastically across the state. The competition has resulted in low tenancies and as a consequence, the mean room rate has taken a whipping of about 30 per centum in all major leisure markets. Suites are now sold non merely for less but besides bundled with bundles, like breakfast, airdrome transportations or a twenty-four hours ‘s rubber-necking. Competition calls for invention in cordial reception industry.
Market Segmentation and Overlapping Trade names: Market cleavage is increasing as housing ironss focus on a specific niche of travelers. Additionally, trade names overlap. Some industry perceivers are concerned that franchisers may spread out their figure of trade names to the point that investors who purchase from the same franchiser will be in direct competition with themselves! Besides, as the figure of trade names additions, the ability of consumers to distinguish between them decreases.
Increased Guest Edification: Consumers have become more sophisticated and, as a consequence, so hold the types of merchandises and services that they desire. Comfortss, including concern centres, exercising and recreational installations, and guest-room inventions, addition costs but, if non carefully selected, may non appeal to many invitees being served by a specific belongings.
The challenges of maintaining up with the fast gait of engineering is hard and expensive.
Synergistic Reservation Systems: Guests can now utilize the Internet ‘s synergistic reserve systems, and cordial reception companies are sometimes criticized for the ( alleged ) big figure of keyboard chinks required to do a reserve. The figure of reserves made via the Internet continues to increase. Surveys show that a good figure reserves are made through the Internet, and this per centum is increasing every twelvemonth. With such high per centum of reserves done through the Internet, cordial reception can non afford non being connected. If the possible invitee can non book online, a reserve will be made at the rival ‘s web site.
Guest-room Inventions: With Wisconsin fi connectivity, temper based lighting, pick of music, multiple telephone lines, synergistic chances for telling room service, modern ammenities and guest-room check-out are illustrations of comfortss that guests progressively desire, but that are really expensive to put in and implement.
Data Mining This engineering allows selling and gross revenues forces to happen new ways to utilize guest-related informations. ( informations excavation: utilizing engineering to analyse invitee and other related informations to do better selling determinations. )
Output Management This computerized procedure allows directors to fit guest demand with room rates ( high demand means higher rates because of diminished price reductions ; low demand consequence in higher price reductions. ) ( yield direction: demand calculating systems designed to maximise gross by keeping rates high during times of high guest-room demand and by diminishing room rates during times of lower guest-room demand ) . Yield direction is critical to maximising a cordial reception ‘s profitableness. The construct are applied to every gross section and across section. The output director ‘s occupation is to maximise the gross per available room by selling suites to the right clients, at the right monetary value, at the right clip.
Dependence upon the Nation ‘s Economy When the state ‘s economic system is good, concern travel by and large increases. Hospitality tenancy rates and single-foot rates increase, which consequences in higher net income degrees. The contrary is besides true: concern travel slows when the economic system slow. Then tenancy and rack rates decrease. Discounts to increase tenancy are offered, which yield lower grosss and net income lessenings.
Globalization Globalization impacts the housing industry dramatically because it influences the extent of which people travel both within the state and around the universe. Therefore, it is non merely the economic system of the state, but besides the economic systems of single states, that play an progressively larger function in the fiscal success of lodging belongingss. To vie, they must pay closer attending to the tendencies of globalisation. The industry must reflect the demands of the planetary small town in many facets of its operations, including nutrient, services, comfortss, staffing policies and preparation.
7.3.3 Tendencies in Hospitality Industry:
Rapid Growth in Vacation Ownership: Vacation ownership is the fastest turning section of the housing industry and is likely to go on turning as the babe boomers enter their 1950ss and 1960ss in the U.S.A.. The World Tourism Organization has called timeshares one of the fastest turning sectors of the travel and touristry industry. Cordial reception companies are adding trade name power to the construct with corporations like Marriott Vacation Club International, the Walt Disney Company, Hilton Hotels, Hyatt Hotels, Promus ‘ Embassy Suites, Inter-Continental and of all time Four Seasons take parting in an industry that has grown quickly in recent old ages.
Integration & A ; Globalization: Vertical integrating is a tendency that began a few old ages ago. Lodging companies realized that invitees ‘ adjustment demands were non merely at one degree ; instead, they seemed to change by monetary value and facilities/amenities. About all major lodging companies now have belongingss in each section of the market. The hereafter of the housing industry involves globalisation. Companies can non turn unless they venture beyond the United States. American cordial reception ironss and their direction techniques were in demand by many developing states who wanted premium-name hotel. An extended study of the status of the cordial reception would hold shown that significant sums of money would be necessary to keep the cordial reception ‘s status. The cordial reception industry is therefore at the really nucleus of the globalisation of international concern. Cordial reception companies hence need to see the deductions of the planetary context in which they operate and must be prepared to turn to the inquiries that arise from this altering environment. Globalization will finally touch virtually all facets of the cordial reception industry. Increasingly, clients, direction procedures, employees, merchandises, and beginnings of capital will be competed for and will travel across national boundaries. Competition in the hereafter will come from planetary entities with the advantages that globalization brings.
New Management: The complex forces of capacity control, safety and security, capital motion, and engineering issues will necessitate a future direction cell that is able to accommodate to rapid-paced alteration across all the traditional maps of direction. The turning complexness of the customer/employee interaction, driven by engineering and the information age, will determine human resources demands in the hereafter. The client, armed with more information, will anticipate frontline and other cordial reception staff to be at least as knowing about the house ‘s offerings as they are themselves. This will be hard in an industry characterized by low-skilled, low-paid forces and a high grade of cultural and behavioural diverseness among its employees. Visioning the hereafter: major forces driving alteration in the cordial reception industry ‘ considers seven countries decisive to the hereafter development of the industry. Each is examined to find the range and complexness of the issue and the timing of its impact. That is assets and capital, wellness and safety, new direction, selling, distribution and capacity direction, engineering, sustainable development, societal issues
Expanded function of Travel Intermediaries & A ; Portals: The entry of Google has added a new dimension to hotel room distribution, since users can book straight from the hunt consequences page, alternatively of snaping through to another site. Traveling frontward, hotels may happen themselves being distributed much like bundle goods. Many invitees will travel to a travel purveyor for hotel suites, merely as they go to a nutrient market for food markets. Further, there have been installations extended to many states including India for developing free web sites by Google enabling little or even un organized hotels accessible on web.
Mobile apps and RFID: Social media, which have grown exponentially in the past few old ages, will go on to be a force, but the large electronic development for hotel distribution and operations is nomadic devices, peculiarly those with radio frequence designation ( RFID ) french friess. Because of the singular dip in the cost of RFID, the survey by Cornell Research Centre anticipate that this will interrupt out as its ain tendency shortly plenty, and the combination of RFID and nomadic apps will let invitees to utilize their smart phones to book a room, cheque in, open their guestroom door, and settle their pagination – all without direct contact with staff. Even without RFID, invitees ‘ usage of nomadic devices will make chances for invention by hotelkeepers, including new services and runing efficiencies.
Following coevals globalisation: Not long ago, globalisation meant that hotel trade names from developed states expanded into developing states, whether through maestro franchises or by geting local houses. Globalization is now fluxing in the rearward way, as trade names from developing states are spread outing to developed states, every bit good as to other developing states. To call merely a few trade names, Taj Hotels from India has now operations in UK, US holding belongingss in Boston, New York, and San Francisco, every bit good as hotels in London and Sydney, Jumeirah from UAE now manages the Essex House in New York, every bit good as belongingss in London and Frankfurt ; Thus, globalisation will intend that hotel trade names criss-cross the Earth.
7.4 Eco Responsible Approaches in Hospitality Business
In the touristry industry, hotels account for a important sum of the overall pollution generated by this sector. The potency of implementing more sustainable patterns in the hotel sector requires the handiness of dependable tools for appraisal and benchmarking of hotel environmental public presentation. A figure of such tools have been developed by international environmental organisations, subdivision associations and even hotel corporations. The assorted strategies differ with respect to geographical/climatic countries covered, types of hotel installations included, item of environmental information required, benchmarking methods, user-friendliness and execution cost.
Green Hotels: In position of the deficit of resources on Earth, lifting consciousness of environmental protection, and ecological preservation, eco-friendly hotels shall be the reply for the above issues, so that natural resources can be recycled, re-used, and energy can be conserved. These are the future ends of the hotel adjustment industry. The term green hotel ( eco-friendly hotel ) was foremost introduced following the outgrowth of the above constructs. Eco-friendly Hotel Association ( 2000 ) was set up to make the green hotel demands that promote the economical usage of H2O and energy, and decrease of solid waste, so as to safeguard the Earth resources. Green Mountain State ( 2010 ) has focused on the creative activity of an eco-friendly environment, perchance leting for part from all staffs and invitees likewise. It carefully scrutinizes each country of the hotel operation to happen ways to cut down the impacts on the environment. It besides looks for ways to educate the populace, and to remind everyone that every spot counts no affair how bantam the part may be. At the same clip, it maintains its committedness to supply the sort of quality service that is expected by hotel invitees. The basic construct of a green hotel is a topographic point of adjustment that can supply eco-friendly services, but its chief end shall be focused on ways to keep its sustainable operation. Under the premiss of minimising the environmental impact, a green hotel shall be managed in such a manner to supply frequenters with a comfy, healthy, natural adjustment while its service quality is maintained.
Development of Green Hotels: Eco-friendly or green hotels are developed under the construct of sustainable operation of the touristry industry. It shall be based on the capacity to prolong the ecological environment, and shall be in line with local economic development and local moralss. In add-on, it can run into the demands of modern-day people, but without jeopardizing the future coevalss. Furthermore, it shall be able to advance the local economic system, resource preservation, and protect the ecofriendly environment, therefore making a harmonious relationship with the nature. As the hotel adjustment is closely tied to the development of the touristry industry, when the diversion and leisure tendency is going progressively popular, increased demand for touristry will besides excite the demand for hotel adjustment. Harmonizing to the traditional feeling, hotels are topographic points that offer luxury adjustment and services. But, under the planetary environmental consciousness and environmental protagonism, and following with the environmental direction demands, hotel services are now focused on cleaner production, eco-friendly services, and regular resource preservation.
The construct of eco-friendly hotels came into being under the green corporate civilization
and the above rules. With increasing attending on the environmental issues, and
influenced by the construct of green hotels, hotels in every state are urged to implement the environmental direction and energy economy steps.
The chief liquors of green hotels are to supply low-cost merchandises and services to run into the demands of the populace, to better the quality of life at the same clip, to cut down the ecological impact on the environment bit by bit throughout the life rhythm, and to cut down the ingestion of natural resource. At least, the gait of energy ingestion shall be reconciled with the
Earth ‘s loading capacity. Eco-friendly Hotels Association ( 2010 ) steadfastly supported the
green enterprises through encouragement and publicity of the green hotel services.
Through appropriate direction of the natural resources, the green hotel construct
can be applied to the hotel adjustment industry.
The Green Practices in Hotels include:
Committedness to Environmental Practices: ( By explicating Environmental Committees, Developing Strategies, Plan of Action, Manuals, explicating green squads, supervising environmental public presentation, pass oning visibleness of environmental patterns to invitees, interest holders, staff, sellers & A ; public )
Energy Efficiency & A ; Conservation: ( Installing tenancy detectors, usage of energy efficiency equipments, applications of surrogate energy beginnings, proper HVAC care, energy efficient designs, edifices & A ; building forms )
Lighting: ( Installing programmable detectors, usage of reminder cards, commissariats for natural visible radiations, application of dimmer controls, usage of CFL and other such energy efficient lamps )
Landscape: ( Sprinkler irrigation systems, recycled H2O, trickle irrigation methods, usage of drouth resistant workss, grouping of tolerant workss, use of organic fertilisers )
Pull offing Hazardous & A ; Toxic Substances: ( Proper commissariats and instructions for storing, usage of least toxic merchandises, small or no phosphates laundry merchandises, usage of rhenium indictable batteries )
Pest Management: ( Implementation of green integrated pest direction programme, application of organic insect powders, use of traps & A ; barriers and discretion of strong and harmful chemicals )
Buying: ( Making environmental buying policy, advancing usage of recycled merchandises, promoting purchase of energy efficient equipments, penchant to environmentally responsible providers, appreciating organic and local but choice merchandises )
Recycling & A ; Reuse: ( set uping good defined recycling policy, optimal usage of glass, plastic, aluminum, tins, paper, card boards and equal recycling, promoting usage of electronic files )
Transportation system: ( promoting usage of by rhythms, promoting pooling, auto sharing, walking, offering hotel bird in nearby countries, discriminatory parking to alternative manners of conveyances such as bio Diesel, electric, intercrossed vehicles )
Water Efficiency & A ; Conservation: ( Re topographic point urinals with limited or no flush eco urinals, put ining low floor shower caputs and faucet aerators, encouraging H2O preservation both by employees and invitees, implementing optional linen and towel rhenium usage programme, look intoing escapes, application of engineering for H2O preservation like detectors )
