Controlling Water Consumption – World Fertilizer

March/April 2017 issue of World Fertilizer 

Industrial plants are typically sited in locations that meet a number of parameters, such as proximity to markets, cost of raw materials, market demand/pricing and a suitable workforce, but seldom is the availability of water a major factor in these decisions. In reality, industrial plants are only one of several water consumers and frequently compete for available water supplies alongside human consumption and agriculture. Areas with limited fresh water heighten this competition and force non-conventional approaches to water conservation.
