The Coca-Cola Company has developed and tested a commercial scale beverage process water recovery system to produce water that meets and/or exceeds drinking water standards for use in non-product activities such as clean-in-place and bottle washing.
The Coca-Cola Company can reduce operational water needs and improve water use efficiency by up to 35%, contribute to growth and local economic development opportunities, further support local communities, and reduce its water footprint, the company said.
The beverage process water recovery system provides water for reuse in selected operations, including clean-in-place and bottle washing.
The Coca-Cola Company and this innovative technology have been recognised with the 'Innovation in Small Projects Award' by the International Water Association at its Asia Pacific Regional Innovation Awards.
The company submitted the water recovery and reuse system technology and results from its pilots in India and Mexico. The project will also be entered in the IWA Global Awards later this year.
