Water Use in Transport Industry
All aspects of modern society rely on transportation of people and goods; materials need to be transported for buildings to be constructed, food distribution requires transportation and people must travel to access facilities. The trend in today’s transport industry is moving towards larger and larger so as to reduce the cost per unit of transported items. It is estimated that 300 million containers are unloaded yearly with twenty percent of these carrying food.
Sooner or later, these cars, trucks, trains, containers and even ships will require cleaning. Cleaning processes are determined by the last load. Cleaning such large vehicles and equipment requires a significant amount of water and the use of various chemicals and detergents. These chemicals are harmful to the environment when discharged untreated.
