The Industrial Water User Club supports manufacturers in managing their water use. This helps reduce their direct and indirect expenses and prevent water-related risks.
HYDREOS created this club to support manufacturers who consume water, but are not necessarily part of the water sector, in setting up their projects and identifying funding. It supports the emergence and development of innovations and helps establish relationships between water sector actors, researchers and water user manufacturers.
- Managing process water quality
- Optimising water process and reducing consumption of water
- Treatiment of cooling water and steam production
- Managing/minimising waste
- Integrated water/energy management
- Improving effluent quality and thus complying with regulation, etc.
With consumption of 800 billion m³ in 2009 and an estimated 1,500 billion m³ in 2030, industry is the second biggest water consumer in the world after agriculture. Given that access to water is becoming increasingly restricted, water management is a growing concern and even a corporate strategy focus. Innovations are being developed to optimise the water cycle in manufacturing. Some manufacturers are already leading the way in their field and their experience can help others.
