INNOWATER WATER AUDIT

To determine the current status of water management in the enterprise

To assist in the determination of specific improvement measures that will enable companies to manage in a more sustainable water consumption of the production process.

20 water-using industries: 16 Food & Drink + 4 Pulp & Paper

Potential market impact of iwa

Potentialmarket IMPACT of IWA:

  • Guaranty of fulfilment of regulations, reduction in water consumption, decrease of exploitation costs  Increase of competitiveness

  • Improvement in water management and its purification helps reducing associated costs, and also improves the competitiveness of the company

  • Companies could offer better product pricing to their clients.

  • Improve on sewage brings a better relation with the Administration because of discharge reduction and fulfilment of discharge limits

  • Transmitting environmental awareness is a key factor in international markets

Case study 1 2

CASE STUDY (1/2):

  • SME in the meat sector (cannedmeat), wateruserindustry.

  • No. Workers: 89 / Annual turnover: €10M / Production/year: 780,062 g.

  • UNE‐EN‐ISO 9011; British Retail Consortium (BRC), International Food Standard (IFS).

  • Total water abstraction (m3): 34,800 (100% Public water supply)

  • Pre-treatments: None

  • Water Reused (m3/year): None

  • 90% of abstracted water is discharged (31.320 m3/year)

  • Waste water treatment: None

IDENTIFIED GOOD PRACTICES:


Companie s good feedback on iwa

Companie’s GOOD feedback on IWA

  • Actual measurements were done on-site

  • Estimated consultant dedication was sufficient to complete the study

  • Full water cycle status assessment within the company

  • Planning of achievable improvements actions, together with an estimated ROI

  • Involvement /commitment from the water using company is essential for the success of the study

  • Previous knowledge between the company and the consultant is a key factor

  • The majority of the companies were not involved in water management projects before

  • The majority of water using companies would continue working with the consultant in this matter even if funds (for vouchers) are not available

SO, HOW CAN A COMPANY OVERCOME THE LACK OF RESOURCES?


What s next

What’snext:

  • CIP-Eco-Innowation (deadline 5 September 2013; budget €31.5M)
