The National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA) will announce plans on the NCPC-SA Industrial Water Efficiency Project during a workshop to be hosted by the Royal Danish Embassy on 30 March 2017. The focus of the workshop will be on prevailing water quantity and quality challenges and sustainable methods to address these, drawing from a collaborative partnership concluded between the Kingdom of Denmark and the South African government.


The workshop is aimed primarily at companies in two traditionally water-intense sub-sectors – dairies and poultry producers. The programme, hosted by the Danish Ministry of Environment and Food, will include the presentation of research into water use in these sectors by the Water Research Commission (WRC) and case studies from small and large companies.


Energy efficiency lies at the core of sustained industrial and economic growth in SA, and industries and businesses must prepare more sufficiently for inevitable energy price hikes, while government should be more proactive and involved in encouraging energy efficiency. These are the findings from a panel of high-profile energy and consumer experts who participated in the Industrial Energy Efficiency Workshop on 22 February 2017.


Participants from the National Cleaner Production Centre, South Africa (NCPC-SA), Chemical and Allied Industries’ Association (CAIA), the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) focused on the daily challenges of rising energy costs and access to reliable alternatives.

Save the date for the biennial Industrial Efficiency Conference 2017, presented at no cost to support industry in the transition to a low carbon economy.
