Beverage Company: Excessive, Inefficient Water Use

Provided by the International Finance Corporation


A Beverage Company, Andhra PradeshIndia

Case

Based on the high demand during the summer season, a beverage company in Andhra PradeshIndia wishes to expand its capacity by about 30 percent. As per the regulatory requirements, the company is required to have the necessary environmental permits to expand and operate from the State (provincial) Pollution Control Board (PCB). However, as the region is already experiencing severe water shortage, the PCB is not willing to provide the “consent to establish” (permit for expansion). After repeated attempts, the company is granted a conditional permit allowing it to expand its capacity by 30 percent, provided there is no additional fresh water withdrawal. 

Impact

Depletion of local water resources (ground and surface water)
