To Build Cuban Water Bottling Facility
The planned facility expects to commence with an output capacity of 1.1 million liters of water per month.
It’s state-of-the-art bottling equipment will allow the operations with a production rate estimated at approximately 12,000 bottles per hour in the 500ml format.
This equates to 96,000 bottles per day or 88,000 cases of 24, 500ml bottles per month.
These systems can produce approximately 40,000 liters of water per day based on the average climatic conditions in Havana.
The bottling facility will also utilize 100% biodegradable bottles that break down completely within six months after use with no residual effects to the environment.
The United Nations’ World Health Organization estimates that more than 3 billion cases of illness and 5 million deaths – the majority children – can be attributed annually to unsafe water.
The death rate for children alone is estimated at one every twenty seconds. Those numbers may rise in the early years of this century; world population surpassed seven billion in 2011. It is expected to top eight billion by 2028. Most of the increases are expected to be in developing countries, increasing pressure on already inadequate water resources.
