REDHILL, United Kingdom, October 2, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Water companies in England and Wales have to deliver, on average, a 17 per cent cut in leakage by 2025. Current levels of leakage, 3.16 billion litres per day in 2018/19, are deemed unacceptable by Ofwat. Black & Veatch has created a new role: Leakage Services Manager, and appointed Stuart White, to help water companies meet the regulator’s expectations.
Water utilities are expected to become more aggressive in their approach to managing energy
It is no surprise that after labor costs, energy is the next highest operational cost for water and wastewater utilities. Water is an extremely heavy resource, requiring enormous amounts of energy to move and treat it. As energy costs continue to rise and more states adopt regulatory incentives and disincentives that drive large-scale sustainability and efficiency efforts, it is expected that utilities will become more aggressive in their approach to managing energy.
January 31, 2019 /3BL Media/ The Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) released their 2018 Water, Energy, and Emissions Benchmarking Study celebrating their tenth benchmarking report and most comprehensive quantitative and qualitative benchmark of water, energy, and emissions efficiency in the beverage industry. Findings of the study substantiate the beverage industry’s ongoing efforts to better understand and reduce resource use on a global scale.
Next time you’re stuck in traffic, consider this: How much faster would you move if there were fewer large trucks on the road? We’ve thought about that, too, which is why we’ve looked for more efficient ways to handle our freight transportation needs so that everyone benefits — economically and environmentally.
Domtar is well known for its sophisticated and cost-effective distribution network. Our freight transportation practices are reliable, and our distributions centers are strategically placed for greater distribution efficiency.
In our quest to make a better world, we often strive for more efficient use of resources. But is the goal of efficiency the right one? Our guest this week on Sea Change Radio, Low Tech Magazine founder, Kris De Decker, makes a compelling case for the abandonment of efficiency as the barometer for planetary stewardship. He proposes we use the simpler, but perhaps more painful objective of sufficiency. De Decker argues that pursuing greener, more efficient methods and technologies is, more often than not, a fool’s errand.
