Water challenge

Problem statement: Diageo production operates in areas of the world where water is in scarce supply for the whole community. Water is a critical input for brewing, distilling and other non-product processes (e.g. cleaning). India is one area where we have significant operations in water stressed region, and a large facility in India will use up to 2000 cubic metres of water per day.

Challenge: To help drive water efficiency improvement by up to 50% across our brewing and distilling operations, through the  implementation of innovations such as water generation, usage efficiency and reuse of water for operations..

Potential solutions could include but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent / automated Water metering
  • Greywater Recycling (C&I) and wastewater treatment
  • Zero Liquid Discharge
  • Water harvesting (atmospheric and rainwater)
  • Water reuse
  • Desalination
  • Hardware and software for efficiency improvement
