 Calculation Notes

The figures have been adjusted based on revaluated energy conversion values. This is now reflective of water usage in the following application- The latex and water mixing stage prior to the additive & Pigment mixing phases where the Latex must be kept from separating. In this case a plan 32 clean water fluid would be used to fill the Seal chamber and protect the mechanical seal.

The following assumptions have been made....

The case for a great return on investment, from water and energy savings is very clear. "Adopt an Investment Policy to Prevent Global Warming".

Real World Examples

We have the know-how to do things differently and help both the environment and the bottom line.

A Summary of Evidence

We estimate that widespread adoption of more climate-friendly policies in industry globally, could have the equivalent impact of taking 529.5 million cars off the roads.
