Radisson Blu Mall of America, part of Choice Hotels International, has completed the installation of a carbon-capture technology unit, making it the first hotel in the world to use this innovative system that captures greenhouse gas emissions from heating equipment. The installation is part of a program by CenterPoint Energy, Minnesota’s largest natural gas utility, to explore the potential of new, cleaner energy technologies.

Radisson Blu MOA expects to reduce its energy bill because the CarbinX unit recycles heat, increasing efficiency in the water heating system to achieve both energy and cost savings. 

“We are thrilled to be leading the way to the future of hospitality stewardship,” says Alberto Abreu, general manager of Radisson Blu Mall of America. “We at Radisson Blu Mall of America and Choice Hotels International are committed to being part of the climate change solution, and we are proud to be a leader in the industry as the first hotel in the world to install a CarbinX unit.”

Choice Hotel says the installation of this new technology demonstrates the organization’s commitment and overall focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts to strengthen sustainability in the lodging industry while driving financial returns and lower costs for owners.
