In 2019, the Grundfos plant in India, Serbia, has been working towards the goal of treating and reusing all water consumed on site.Like many other facilities, this factory uses water for sanitation, and to clean components in production. Thanks to significant investments and the implementation of a new water treatment system, 60-70% of the factory�s wastewater will be treated for reuse. Together with rainwater harvesting technology, this will move the factory closer to realizing their closed-loop ambitions. The results are a significant step towards the 2025 goal to cut our global water consumption in half. �We have made major investments here in India because it is the right thing to do,� says Veljko Todorovi_, Plant Director, Grundfos Serbia. He continues, �It�s important that we keep order in our own house. We have an obligation to be first-movers in cleaning and reusing our own wastewater. I am confident this will be inspiring within our company and hope it will be encouraging to other companies as well.� �We are also hoping that governments will be inspired to implement tighter regulations and standards for how companies and municipalities treat their wastewater, "he adds.
