Water Usage by Source

In 2016, our operations used more than 6.9 million cubic meters of water from four primary sources. We did not see any significant change regarding the source. Of the water used in operations, again 8% of that volume was recycled and reused for additional processes on site. Water consumption data are generated at a facility level using facility based or municipally supplied metered data and aggregated across Calgon Carbon's operations.
