Six scoop support from Business Stream’s Public Sector Scotland Water Efficiency Fund

Business Stream has awarded six public sector initiatives nearly £50,000 of funding through its annual Public Sector Scotland Water Efficiency Fund. The projects were:

• Glasgow Life will install Urinal Controls at the Tollcross Swimming Pool, with further rollout across additional sites expected;

• Heriot-Watt University will install six mini-chiller units on its campus to capture, cool, condense and re-circulate used water, helping to reduce water waste;

• Glasgow Caledonian University will replace outdated taps in the library bathroom with modern low-flow electronic versions, helping to manage water use and reduce wastage;

• Robert Gordon University will install 42 waterless urinals and 78 aerator taps across its campus, helping to meet carbon reduction and water efficiency targets;

• Moray Council will replace 34 taps at Milnes Primary School with water efficient equivalents; and

• Moray Council will also use the funding to replace 18 taps at New Elgin Primary School.

In addition to providing funding, Business Stream will support the delivery of each project.

The fund allocation process was overseen by a judging panel comprising representatives from Business Stream, the Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges, public sector bodies and Scottish Procurement.

Business Stream recently announced that it had saved Scotland’s public sector over £2.2m in water costs during the second year of its three-year contract. The financial savings equate to 1.4bn litres of water being saved – achieved through a combination of the retailer’s water efficiency and leak detection services.
