Simple Modifications At Nestlé Factory In Spain Produce Major Water Savings

August 30, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A Nestlé factory in La Penilla, Spain, that makes chocolate, confectionery, milk and infant formula was able to reduce its water use per ton of product by almost two thirds in less than 12 months, thanks to some simple modifications suggested by a team of engineers, environmental sustainability experts and the factory manager. The factory now efficiently regulates the amount of water flowing through the condensers of the milk evaporators, for example, leading to a reduction of more than one million cubic meters of water a year. The factory also installed three new cooling towers with a more efficient closed refrigeration loop system that recycles water.
