1. To reduce water consumption, the Mikkeli plant in Finland replaced the spray nozzles in its cooling cabinets with smaller ones. Optimized timing has also reduced water volumes.
2. The Jelgava production plant in Latvia modified the water cooling system linked to its smoking ovens by lowering the temperature and shortening the cooling time, thus reducing water consumption by 10 per cent.
3. The Skovsgaard plant in Denmark has reduced its water consumption by 5-10 per cent. Additionally, HKScan Denmark is participating in the “DRIP” project (Danish partnership for Resource and water efficient Industrial food Production), which focuses on optimizing the use of drinking water. Two DRIP sub-projects have been initiated so far, saving 320 m3 water per day.
4. During the rebuild of the stables at the Kristianstad slaughterhouse, Sweden, new taps for drinking water and new showers for cooling the air temperature were installed to reduce water consumption.
