Well I guess that's a bit of an exaggeration but the efficient use of water is a growing concern for all industries. As world population grows water becomes a more and more precious commodity. Some are already dubbing it liquid gold, with the real prospect of water wars looming the future is looking somewhat uncertain. What is certain though is that any ways we can find to use water more efficiently is now a moral imperative.
Efficient tank washing may not be the pressing green issue of they day, it certainly does not have the same impact find new carbon free fuel sources, but saving water through selecting more efficient nozzles is one of those countless thousands of improvements to manufacturing efficiency necessary for the new "green economy". It is the combined weight of these little, unglamorous, "boring" changes that ultimately will help save our selves from environmental peril.
This may all sound a bit "hippy" and non "businessy" so perhaps, for the more hard nosed readers, the rising cost of water to businesses will have more resonance. Water costs are going up and not just because of rising utility bills. Green legislation mandating better treatment of waste water has a very real cost for businesses. Not only does it cost more to get the water you require also costs more to throw it away! This trend is unlikely to change any time soon.
Very real improvements can be achieved by effective nozzle selection. This means that less water can be used to achieve the same level of cleaning. This is good for the environment, good for your companies image and, ultimately, good for your companies pockets!
