Lots of companies are thinking about how they can reuse or recycle water. Water is often a key raw material in production plants, and one that is increasingly scarce or subject to limits on discharge. Where extensions or product changes are planned that increase the demand for water, water shortages can put production sites in doubt. The need to use resources in a more sustainable and efficient way is another reason to consider how water can be reused.
With its EnviCheck water recycling and reuse solution, EnviroChemie allows its customers to determine the potential for saving water. To do this, the experts at EnviroChemie first examine the water flows and consider which treatment processes would be suitable for the relevant requirements.
Existing data is evaluated and the local conditions analysed. Afterwards, EnviroChemie gives companies a system diagram for water recycling or reuse and an initial cost estimate for the treatment, depending on the requirements specified.
Food processing offers a host of opportunities to reuse water: partial flows such as rinsing water, cooling water, vapour condensates and permeates can all be recycled. Depending on the substances contained in the wastewater, full flow recycling downstream of existing water treatment systems can also be a useful option.
In other sectors, too, it can be worth examining whether it is possible to reuse or recycle water.
