Eureka Linen is a business unit of Ballarat Health Services and has been operating since 1979. It provides approximately 55 tonnes of rental linen a week to healthcare and hospitality facilities around the state.
The company is one of the region’s largest water users, as significant amounts of water is required through the cleaning process.
Eureka planned to save water by recycling 35 million litres of laundry water per annum. This was accomplished through the installation of an ultra-filtration recycling system to recycle the wastewater from the laundering process.
The recycling system was expected to save more than 40ML of potable water per annum. The cost of operating the filtration plant is offset by energy saved by reusing warm water.
