Case study: Diageo Target Water Efficiency
High footfall at the Diageo Leven site has led to increased water consumption via the taps and urinals. The challenge was to review the washroom services with the highest use and to reduce the water consumption through innovation that could be replicated easily across the estate.
DB Group surveyed and recommended replacing the taps with non-concussive taps reducing the flow from 30 litres a minute to 5.7 litres per minute. In addition to the taps we retrofitted 18 urinals to be waterless. Both solutions have been extremely successful, and we are now rolling this out across the Diageo bottling plants.
"The waterless urinals have saved the site 2,500,000 litres of water in a 12-month period and the reducer taps are on track to save a further 3,000,000. This was achieved from a relatively modest investment and equates to a financial saving of just over £10,000 per year. I highly recommend DB Group for any environmental needs. "
