Pladur manufacturing process is very intensive in energy and water consumption. As part of its sustainability initiatives, Pladur wants to economically recover the maximum volume of water from steam to be used for the hydration, at a lower cost compared to the cost of water consumption from the network. And this to be achieved with a minimal investment (recovery period of maximum 2 years).
The evaluation criteria in each of the rounds of the tournament for the proposed solutions are:
- Business case (cost to recover water)
- Investment required (maximum 2 years recovery)
The winner will be awarded with a 15.000 € cash prize and the other 2 finalists will be awarded with a 1.000 € cash prize each
In addition, depending on the quotation for implementation, there is an opportunity to conduct the final implementation of the solution.
