Our Technical Center in Mossville, Ill., has implemented cooling tower efficiency improvements that have resulted in more than 100 million gallons (380,000 cubic meters) of water recycled annually, delivering a 30 percent reduction in process cooling water consumption. Another project focused on process water softener rebuilds and control strategy enhancements saved an additional 35 million gallons (130,000 cubic meters) of water per year. These and other upgrades have resulted in a 58 percent improvement in water consumption over the baseline year of 2008.
