There are very few people who know about the huge water recycling plant by Intel that is under construction. It is being constructed in Hillsboro, Oregon. This project is one of the major steps being taken by Intel to meet its long term objective of water reduction and recycling. Intel is bringing down the amount of water it is using for computer chip manufacturing.
The firm has set a goal of 2025 where it will reduce its water consumption by 100 percent in all facilities located across the world. By then it would have returned all the water it has consumed since its inception. It reported that in last 2 decades it has conserved approx. 60 billion gallons of water.
As and when the three-year Hillsboro project gets completed, this facility will be able to recycle approx. 1 billion gallon per year which is equal to the volume held by 90, 000 Olympic size swimming pools. This plant will be one of the biggest water recycling facility on the globe.
