Coca-Cola Beverages Sri Lanka has launched its new 'Water Neutral by 2015 initiative' in Sri Lanka. The project will be to implement ultra-filtration followed by scale removal through Nano technology to use treated waste water for non-production purposes, the company said in a media statement. The company said it has appointed a water resource management team to explore possible ways and means of reducing usage of water in the bottling process. The re-use of treated waste water has been identified by the team as having the potential of saving a minimum of m3 (cubic metres) of water a day.
