The beverage company's wastewater is used in Lafarge's conditioning tower before de-dusting of gases from the plant's cement kiln, the article continued.

“This solution provides our Volos plant with around 30,000m³ of water every year,” Lafarge said in a statement. "This allows us to reduce freshwater consumption at Volos and provides an environmentally-sound solution for the reuse of this waste water, which was previously discharged directly into the sea."
