Bentley launches new water capture system in Crewe, UK
Luxury car manufacturer Bentley has launched a new water capture and recycling system for its Pyms Lane factory in Crewe, UK. This is following a successful trial of the system, which captures water used by the water purifying system in its paint shop. The company expects to recycle around 350,000 litres in 2020 alone.
Bentley uses reverse osmosis to make sure the water used is free of contaminants that could affect the paint finish. However, the level of purity required means only 1/3 of the water treated can be used. By implementing the new capture and recycling system, the wasted water is stored and used in maintenance of the factory site. This will include washing over 16 miles of factory floor routes, and watering plants on the grounds.
