Water is a vital component in the can making process and Crown insisted on sourcing the latest sophisticated water treatment technology. Their goal was to recycle 90% of the water used in production. EWS worked closely with Crown to deliver a number of different water treatment solutions throughout the manufacturing process. EWS quickly advised Crown that the local towns water supply needed treatment to bring it up to the required standard.
A water treatment solution consisting of leading edge engineering design, 3D modelling and project management, alongside offsite manufacturing, has enabled Britvic to expand its production capabilities at its Leeds UK facility from 70m³/hr to 200m³/hr.
