Industrial water use accounts for between 20-30% of total water consumption in the U.S. as water plays an important role in many industrial processes. Manufacturing companies utilize water in the production of their products and create wastewater from cleaning equipment or the facility or as a byproduct of the manufacturing process itself. This process and produced water needs to be treated before it is used in manufacturing or sent to the municipal waste water system. For example, food processing...
The Oil & Gas industry in North America, driven by hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) technology and operations, is facing a water shortage and storage crisis that can shut down an operation as fast as a dry well. Fresh water is limited by transportation cost, municipal regulations, and drought. Regulatory pressures, driven by health concerns, have created a business environment where sealing reject water from extraction operations into deep wells has become a limited option.
Food and beverage companies are pursuing advanced and innovative technologies to enhance water management tasks. Consumers, municipalities they operate in, and regulators have pushed for this industry to minimize energy and water consumption. Companies are being rewarded for emphasizing alternative technologies that demonstrate their commitment to water conservation and reuse.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers seek improved, lower-cost oxidation methods for ultrapure process water and to remove organics in produced water applications. The Symbios TPR4000™ can provide lower cost, higher performance, more effective disinfection, reduce RO fouling & costs, and reduce post-MBR odor/residual organics when compared to traditional treatment methods that include chemical additives.
