Preserving precious resources

Zero-waste strategies increasingly incorporate water and energy conservation. Covanta safely recycles wastewater back into productive use through publicly owned treatment plants. “We process more than 150 million gallons of industrial wastewater annually, offering a better solution then solidifying at a landfill or deep-well injection,” says Stauder.

Emilio Tenuta, vice president of sustainability at Ecolab, says no resource has more circular potential than water, yet less than 3% of wastewater is currently reused. Ecolab is “helping companies move beyond reduction through conservation and efficiency to a circular model based on recycling, reusing, and repurposing water,” he says.

Ecolab, an early adopter of the internet of things (IoT), uses proprietary technology and Big Data analytics to help customers continuously monitor their water systems, provide real-time feedback, detect change, and take corrective action to resolve problems before they occur. The company’s water performance ecosystem includes on-site technical services, connected 3D TRASAR controllers, chemistry, and a 24/7/365 System Assurance Center.
