Danone, a global food and drink processing company headquartered in Paris, France, had its dairy plant in Tchehov, Russia, operating at full capacity. In 2012, the plant’s new chilled water system churned out yogurt, cheese and dairy drinks for all of Russia and Commonwealth of Independent States countries, but it consumed excessive water and energy resources. In 2014, Danone asked Nalco Water, an Ecolab company, to conduct a Mechanical, Operational, Chemical and Sustainability (MOCS) audit of the water treatment system. After diagnosing the problem, Nalco Water installed 3D TRASARTM for Cooling Water Technology in 2015. 3D TRASAR provides round-the-clock fine-tuning, faster problem solving and improved system operations, saving water and energy, while making efficient use of chemistry.
