    2012 Ford reduced total global water use by 62 or 10 6 billion gallons That is quite an accomplishment Let s look at another American icon MillerCoors in how it is dealing with reducing water consumption In 2008 MillerCoors empowered its employees to develop and employ measures to reduce the 4 1 barrels 129 gallons of water it was using to produce one barrel of beer Today thanks largely to innovative methods to reduce cleaning and flushing of its systems MillerCoors now uses 3 6 barrels 113 gallons of water on average The going rate for water in Chicago is 2 89 per 1 000 gallons which means the 0 5 barrel or 15 75 gallons difference would amount to savings of about 0 20 cents per barrel which doesn t sound like a lot but over millions of barrels it really adds up That s a testament to our employees a significant improvement of our operations and a new benchmark for the industry said MillerCoors Director of Sustainability Kim Marotta Our goal is to reduce water consumption by 15 from 2008 to 2015 One of the brewery s approaches involves implementing short interval control SIC SIC is a best practice methodology developed to analyze performance on an ongoing basis and support long term improvements Marotta explained When we put SIC into place employees became much more engaged As a result of this and other initiatives we ve been saving tens of millions of gallons of water annually in our plants Another approach with even more significant results is reducing water needed for barley agri production That irrigation accounts for about 90 of the overall water consumption attributed to an average bottle of beer To accomplish that reduction the brewery worked with The Nature Conservancy in Idaho s Silver Creek Valley We worked with one farm in particular and have saved over 270 million gallons of water to date approximately what one brewery would use in two months Marotta said One procedure that MillerCoors implemented was that it changed irrigation sprinkler heads which were designed so barley farmers could lower them physically to reduce evaporation In an Earth Day ceremony this year at National Geographic headquarters in Washington DC the U S Water Alliance presented one of its three U S Water Prizes to MillerCoors for its work with The Nature Conservancy and the Idaho Silver Creek barley farmers More barley crop per water drop is the way I like to characterize how MillerCoors is leading the way with footprinting stewardship and education said U S Water Alliance President Ben Grumbles MillerCoors deserves the 2013 U S Water Prize for more than the efficiency changes in their facilities It s the innovative reach beyond and up the agriculture supply chain that caught our attention In all they ve managed a 20 reduction in agricultural water use Congratulations to MillerCoors on its achievements Kudos to these great corporate citizens for reducing their water consumption WATER NEWS Toilet To Tap Water Purification Coming To South Bay CBS

Comments SCIENCE CHANNEL NAMED OFFICIAL MEDIA PARTNER FOR SECOND ANNUAL MANUFACTURING DAY Science Channel has been named as the official media sponsor for the second annual Manufacturing Day a broad based grassroots effort created to drive public awareness of the American manufacturing industry and manufacturing careers The network s popular manufacturing series HOW IT S MADE was named official program partner for the event which takes place on October 4 2013 Manufacturing Day 2013 will feature several hundred manufacturers educational institutions and other partners offering open houses public tours career workshops and other activities to share the technology ingenuity and innovation exemplified by American manufacturing The event is co produced by the Fabricators Manufacturers Association International FMA the National Association of Manufacturers NAM The Manufacturing Institute the National Institute of Standards and Technology s NIST Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership MEP and Industrial Strength Marketing ISM NanoBCA endorses Manufacturing Day Click here to see a list of Sponsors No other media outlet has done more to promote manufacturing than Science Channel Through programming like HOW IT S MADE the network has shown millions of viewers that manufacturing is fascinating high tech and offers the opportunity for a great career said Ed Youdell President and CEO of FMA With Science Channel s help we hope to build on the success of last year s event which featured more than 240 events in manufacturing facilities in 37 states with more than 7 000 people participating Manufacturing Day will continue to inform and inspire new audiences with a look behind the scenes at American manufacturing Science Channel is honored to participate in Manufacturing Day as the promotion of science engineering and technology is at the core of everything that we do said Debbie Adler Myers General Manager and Executive Vice President Science Channel HOW IT S MADE has been one of our most popular franchises for years exposing huge audiences to the art and genius of manufacturing and on October 4 viewers will have the chance to experience HOW IT S
