Reducing water consumption

water consumption

In the production process for printed carpet, water is an essential raw material. AW has therefore made some targeted investments to minimize water consumption.

AW’s own biological water purification installation purifies the company’s waste water. This means 95% of the contaminants in the water are removed; 40% of this purified waste water is not discharged but is reused as processing water after undergoing additional physicochemical purification. This rates as top performance in the sector. 

Raising the awareness of the personnel contributes enormously to the minimization of water use, as well.
