The ROI of Water Recovery: Calculating the Financial Benefits for Your Business

21 September 2023

Water recovery: where to start.

As industries strive to become more sustainable, water recovery systems are becoming an increasingly important part of their operations. Not only do these systems help conserve precious water resources and reduce environmental impact, but they can also deliver significant financial benefits

In this blog post, we'll explore the ROI of water recovery systems and how they can save your business money. We'll look at how water recovery systems can help reduce your water bills, increase your efficiency, and ultimately, calculate the return on investment (ROI).

Reduced Water Bills

Water recovery systems help reduce the amount of water that industries need to use, which in turn lowers their water bills. By treating and reusing wastewater, businesses can significantly cut down on their water usage and reduce operating costs. In the brewery industry for instance, continuous search for water cost control, has seen significantly improvement of the water efficiency from 7 liters to 1 liter of beer to less than 3 liter water for 1 liter beer production.

Calculating ROI

To calculate the ROI of a water recovery system, you'll need to consider the initial investment costs, such as installation and equipment, as well as the ongoing operational costs, such as maintenance and energy usage. You'll also need to estimate the financial benefits of the system, such as reduced water bills and increased efficiency.

Draft your water recovery business case

To allow drafting your business case for water reuse, you’ll have to start defining targets for your water consumption.

  • What is your current water usage? What are the characteristics for each water type in each application (sanitary water, demin water, drinking water).
  • Do you have water available from wastewater treatment?
  • Which water is available for operating your business and what are the future restrictions on this external water sources (well water, city mains, service water)?
  • Is stormwater available for reuse
  • What is the water sourcing cost for each of your source?
  • How much do you want to save on water volume and cost?
