Project Overview

After assessing water footprint of the Agustino plant, Mexichem identified that the highest quantity of consumed water came from domestic use. The Agustino plant has 44 bathrooms, 20 with conventional tanks (10 lt) and 24 with fluxometers, which is a mechanism of water discharge for toilets, urinals and faucets that uses a water network with a pressure higher than normal to produces an abundant and short-term discharge, generating a deficiency in the use of water resour...

After assessing water footprint of the Agustino plant, Mexichem identified that the highest quantity of consumed water came from domestic use. The Agustino plant has 44 bathrooms, 20 with conventional tanks (10 lt) and 24 with fluxometers, which is a mechanism of water discharge for toilets, urinals and faucets that uses a water network with a pressure higher than normal to produces an abundant and short-term discharge, generating a deficiency in the use of water resources and therefore an economic overload for the company. Mexichem implemented 20 'Ecobaños' devices that allow savings of 4 liters of water per discharge, which represents a daily saving of 108 liters per installed device. In parallel, there were workshops for the 400 employees of the company on the subject of care and good use of water resources, showing the savings generated with the "Ecobaño" devices.
