Mountain Refuge, Mont Blanc, France

The Refuge du Gouter, located at an altitude of 3,835 m/12,582 ft, was designed according to high environmental standards and can host as many as 8,500 people over a three-month period. Evac solution offered an additional source of water operating independently of the potable water produced by snow melting. Evac also contributed to comply with very strict environmental objectives with more than 50% water saving and discharge of high quality water .
