Mobarakeh Steel Company -- Iran's biggest steelmaker in Isfahan Province -- has significantly reduced water consumption over the past 25 years, managing director of the complex said.
"MSC consumed 16,000 liters of water to produce one ton of steel in 1994. Now that has decreased by five times or 80%, and stands at 3,000 liters," Hamidreza Azimian told the Persian-language economic daily Donya-e-Eqtesad on Tuesday.
MSC's annual output is 7.2 million tons, for which 22 billion liters of water is used. The water consumption was 37 billion liters in 1994 for producing two million tons of steel.
