ABSTRACT

Abstract: - This research study investigates implementable eco-efficiency opportunities available in a beverage manufacturing entity. It recommends actions to reduce material intensity by cutting water usage, cut energy intensity by reducing energy use as well as identify areas of reducing toxic discharge intensity in the plant for continuous improvement. The results of these sustainable programs are compared to the world class beverage bench marks. The study can be a useful resource to plant managers seeking to achieve environmental efficiency in food and beverage manufacturing operations.
