The Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) today presented Intesa client CP Kelco with its prestigious “Environmental Excellence Award” for the company’s numerous water-saving initiatives and strategies, and for hosting the 2015 Industrial Water Efficiency Workshop for best practices sharing.

Since 2014, CP Kelco has made water conservation projects an operational and budgetary priority, which allowed the world-leading producer of specialty hydrocolloid ingredients to reduce its rate of water use by more than 10,000,000 gallons in the first six months of 2016.

In October 2015, more than 40 San Diego-based sustainability engineers and managers attended CP Kelco’s Water Workshop, which provided San Diego’s industrial water users a forum to share best management practices, policies and “blue sky” solutions for water conservation, in the face of California’s historic drought. 

Congratulations, CP Kelco San Diego!
