Takeda Lessines saves 600 million litres of water per year
In March 2021, the pharmaceutical company Takeda inaugurated a new wastewater recycling facility in Lessines. This investment will result in a 90% reduction in the consumption of drinking water at the site. This represents 600,000 cubic metres of water per year, equal to the average amount of drinking water consumed by almost 18,000 people.
After treatment, the purified wastewater meets the strictest quality requirements, allowing it to be reused in the drug manufacturing process.
