Save water, save money

A PETERBOROUGH manufacturing company has had two of its products recognised by government agencies for their environmental benefits.

Aquavent UK produces flow controllers and its Aquai-Mod and Aqua-Hilo have been added to the Water Technology List – a list of approved water-saving devices that meet the criteria for Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) claims for companies using them.

The Water Technology List, developed and managed by Defra and HM Revenue and Customs, in partnership with Envirowise, will help businesses save money in the short and long-term by encouraging them to invest in technologies and products that reduce water use and improve water quality.

Water savings are a key area for all businesses. According to Envirowise, manufacturing companies can easily save between 30% and 50% of water and waste water costs through inexpensive changes to their working practices.

Envirowise water specialist, Claire Sweeney said, “The Water Technology List is making it easy for businesses to make important decisions to improve their water use and water quality and save money at the same time. Businesses will benefit in the long-term through reduced water costs and improved water efficiency and in the short-term by claiming an Enhanced Capital Allowance.”

Ms Sweeney added, “Aquavent UK Ltd is one of the product and technology manufacturers leading the industry forward. One of the objectives of offering the ECA is to encourage innovation and to encourage companies such as Aquavent UK Ltd to come up with new technologies to improve water use and water quality.”
