The National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA) has announced the release of a series of industrial water efficiency guides and tools, available freely on their website. The tools have been developed and shared for use by any industry or organisation that seeks to reduce water consumption in their operations, and learn practical skills to save on water bills.

The NCPC-SA, which is an industry support programme hosted at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), will be introducing the tools to industry at an online workshop on 17 February 2022.

“We intend to simplify the implementation of water efficiency for the industry whilst securing this scarce resource for the future and ultimately help companies realise savings through reduced usage,” explains Lindani Ncwane, Project Manager leading the industrial water efficiency project at the NCPC-SA.

The water efficiency best practice guide and the industrial water efficiency assessment guide which has been developed in collaboration with the CSIR Water Centre, are currently available for download and application on the NCPC-SA website at no cost to users. “While these tools were developed with a focus on the agro-processing sector, they can be used across other industries to reduce effluent water and save costs,” said Ncwane.

A further tool that will be added to those being launched in February is a monitoring and metering guide that was developed in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
