Reportedly, 3M (MMM) is investing more than $170 million at its Cordova, Illinois, site to engineer and install cutting-edge technology building its company-wide goal of enhancing the quality of water returned to the environment.
Launched in 2021, the company expects to reduce overall water use at the Cordova site by 25 percent and also return higher-quality water to the environment after it is used in manufacturing operations. The newly-installed technology designed specifically for the site featuring a combination of granular activated carbon, reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and other methods will go online and enhance already existing systems in place.
The post-it maker plans to install state-of-the-art water treatment processes at certain locations worldwide by 2024, which will drive a more than 95 percent reduction in 3M’s PFAS discharges globally by 2025, close to more than 99 percent by 2030.
