International Inc., Baton Rouge Plant, was
awarded the outstanding 2003 ground-water conservation
award. As part of Honeywell's on-going Responsible Care
effort to help conserve the natural resources of the state
of Louisiana, as well as the level of groundwater in the
Capital Area, Honeywell International Inc. has completed two
major projects to reduce groundwater consumption. A
replacement well was installed in 2001, which utilized a
variable speed pump to reduce unnecessary water usage, and
the installation of a Boiler condensate recovery/recycling
system in 2002.
These projects in addition to other operational changes
have reduced the groundwater consumption by approximately 550,000 gallons per
day. This represents an approximate 35% reduction in daily consumption over the
previous 36 months of operation.
