Bottling success

Business Stream’s experts helped Coca-Cola progress towards its water-neutral target, delivering water saving expertise to allow maximum efficiency.

The Challenge

Coca-Cola Enterprises made an ambitious commitment to have a water-neutral impact – returning to the environment the same amount of water it uses in production. When the brand’s factory in East Kilbride was awarding a contract for maintenance of its water treatment system, it needed to find a partner with the right water-saving expertise.

The Solution

Business Stream set about optimising the treatment plant for efficiency. Their team found that filters designed to remove contaminants were draining away too much water, resulting in wastage. They introduced new valve controls to correct this, as well as suggesting further ways to improve performance. They also produced a graphic of the plant and an operation manual to equip the onsite team to handle day-to-day treatment issues more effectively.
