Control our water consumptions

SILAB has carefully prepared an action plan at different levels to control its water consumptions. Simple actions with an immediate effect are combined with a more structural analysis to realize significant long-term savings.

A ten-member team works daily to optimize water consumptions by the installation of 130 water meters.This rigorous monitoring has identified a number of consumption anomalies and therefore their resolution.

A project for recycling and treating CIP (Cleaning in place) water has also been launched. Cleaning water is recovered, sorted and treated to obtain softened water that can be reused in certain industrial process steps. Implementing this solution will lead to a 20% decrease of overall water consumption on the site.
