On 23 April 2018, Intel Corporation highlighted its ensuing completion of a US$25 million water recycling facility at its Ronler Acres manufacturing location in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Initially announced in 2016, the project contract was awarded to GE Water & Process Solutions (now Suez) and is a strategic move to secure water supplies for expansion of its D1X microchip manufacturing operations. In September 2017, Intel announced its goal to return 100% of its water used back to local communities by 2025.
