Thank you for your patience.
  • Process water: Processes that typically use large quantities of water include washing machines, rinsing, water jets or sprays to keep conveyors clean or to cool product, and the use of tanks, which are refilled to control losses. Opportunities for reducing water use exist through water reuse, improved equipment maintenance and better process design.
  • Building facility operations: Consumption of building and sanitary water is typically less than that of industrial processes. Areas for reducing water use include repairing leakages and installing water-saving devices.
  • Cooling systems: Once-through cooling systems with cooling towers use large quantities of water and can be replaced by closed circuit cooling systems. Fresh water use can also be reduced by replacing it with treated water.
  • Heating systems: Closed heating systems based on the circulation of low or medium pressure hot water may consume large quantities of water if they leak and are poorly maintained. In some cases, large quantities of water may be used by steam systems but water use can be reduced through steam recovery systems and improved systems operations.

Where possible, a client’s/investee’s operations should reduce overall water use at the facility level by managing the water consumption associated with specific production processes to avoid excess costs. A financial institution can help a client/investee to identify areas for reductions in water use and new environmental business opportunities
