High Pressure Reverse Osmosis.

The BMW Group is committed to creating sustainable mobility – from suppliers, to production, to the end of the vehicle lifecycle. Every BMW “X” model produced at Plant Spartanburg not only represents premium quality, but also sustainability in action. BMW Group aspires to be the most successful and sustainable premium producer for individual mobility. 

At BMW Plant Spartanburg, one way we show our commitment is our continued commitment to decrease plantwide water consumption. One water conservation project within the facility was the installation of a high pressure reverse osmosis unit in the Paint Shop.  This unit allows waste water from the manufacturing processes, which would normally be pretreated and discharged to sewer, to be filtered and reused within the production process. In 2017, this process reduced BMW Plant Spartanburg’s water consumption by 26.8 million gallons.
