Saving Water (and Money!) in Manufacturing and the Supply Chain

Presented by

Liese Dallbauman, PhD, LEED AP, Senior Mgr. Water Stewardship, PepsiCo

About this talk

PepsiCo’s four-stage ReCon (resource conservation) program focuses on understanding energy and water use at the plant level and beyond. The first stage of ReCon focuses on understanding resource utilization at the plant level. The ReCon toolkit includes a Water Profiler, which identifies and quantifies major water users and their associated costs. Another component of the toolkit is an online Diagnostic, which determines whether best practices are being followed. The Profiler and Diagnostic are used together to identify and prioritize conservation projects. ReCon Water was introduced at six PepsiCo-owned manufacturing sites and one supply chain partner site in 2009. The savings opportunities identified at those sites totaled over one billion liters of water, corresponding to energy and water savings of nearly $725,000. This presentation will describe the ReCon process and the ReCon Water toolkit, as well as examples of the savings found at snack and beverage plants.
