The biggest industrial water users are the following manufacturing sectors: Pulp& Paper, primary metals, chemicals and food. While many of these manufacturers along with those in other industries have active and effective water conservation programs, additional actions are needed to counteract the global water crisis.
Manufacturers often focus on water treatment and reuse as the primary way to reduce water consumption. Beyond that, it becomes more challenging to reduce water use because of the potential impact on the process and product quality. However, there are ways to save water that won’t disrupt operations. In fact, some fairly small changes can be made to yield big reductions in water use.
Many manufacturers are unaware these opportunities exist or don’t realize the magnitude of potential savings- which can be millions of litres annually.
