Global water scarcity and increasing population makes wastewater treatment and recycling a strategic imperative for human and economic development. Large volumes of wastewater are generated daily in every community and at water-intensive industrial facilities. As the demand for water grows, so does demand for the treatment and reuse of this water. Thanks to Dow innovation, people worldwide are turning this wastewater into a valuable resource. Together, the TEQUATIC™ PLUS fine particle filter, FILMTEC™ reverse osmosis elements and IntegraFlo™ ultrafiltration membrane technology are driving energy efficiency and cost savings in municipal and industrial wastewater reclamation processes. In addition our selective ion exchange media and adsorbents are helping customers and communities meet more stringent discharge requirements for waters that cannot be reused directly.
