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

  • Technical Checklist

  • General data on the Company

  • Equitable and transparent water governance

  • Report 1 - Data Gathering

    • Introducction and general issues

    • Study of Waterflow

    • Waterdiagram

    • Watercost

    • Consumption ratios

    • Watermanagement

    • Conclusions

  • Improvement plan

  • Identification of improvement possibilities

    • Installations and process technologies

    • Use of current technologies (employee behaviour)

    • In management

  • Selection of improvements:

    • a. ROI and cost analysis

    • b. Estimations of impact (water saving, minimizing pollution, etc…)

    • c. Risk analysis

    • d. Real possibilities of implementation)

  • Report 2 - Improvement Plan

  • Proposals for improvement

  • Prioritize

  • Overview of selected improvements

  • Planning

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

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


What s next

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

    • Objective: Commercialisation of eco-innovativesolutions

    • R&D phasemust be completed

    • Approach: first application or market replication of eco-innovative techniques, products, processes or practices

    • Priorities: MaterialsRecycling, SustainableBuildingProducts, Food&Drink Sector, Water, GreeningBussinesses/ smartpurchasing

2014 2020
2014 - 2020.

  • Fighting and adapting to climate change
