Recycling system enables First Car Rental to cut water usage


The Cape Town depot of First Car Rental has reduced municipal water usage by nearly 80% since installing the eWasha Washbay Water Recycling Plant.
eWasha is a revolutionary car wash system that recycles used carwash water through a chemical-free, biological treatment process and then pumps it back into the carwash system. A rainwater storage system is installed in conjunction to this, further reducing the need for municipal water.

The eWasha system has also recently been commissioned at First Car Rental’s Pomona depot in Johannesburg and King Shaka Airport depot in Durban, with plans under way to use the recycled water in the toilet systems as well.

“Water is precious and we all have to do our bit to conserve South Africa’s resources. The eWasha Washbay system will have a profound impact on water conservation and is certainly the way forward,” says Melissa Storey, executive head of Marketing and Strategy for First Car Rental.
