Bayer Agriculture closes water cycle
Pharmaceutical and chemical group Bayer has commissioned a new water recycling facility. It will purify the waste water from the Antwerp production site and upgrade it to high-quality process water of an even better quality than drinking water.
The recycled water is reused in various factory units: as drinking water, as demineralised water in certain production processes or for steam generation. The water savings achieved correspond to the annual drinking water consumption of 3,000 families of 4 people.
