The eWasha system at First Car Rental's Cape Town depot

First Car Rental's Cape Town depot 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 and King Shaka Airport branch depots, with plans underway to use the recycled water in the toilet systems as well.
