MWH to lead WateReuse industrial reuse investigation
The WateReuse Research Foundation has awarded a project to MWH Global, to investigate the onsite industrial water reuse sector.The Drivers, successes, challenges and opportunities for onsite industrial water reuse project seeks to develop a roadmap that will support the expansion of onsite industrial water reuse practices, which are recognized as a key component of industrial water footprint reduction.
This study will bring together key players from a variety of industrial sectors in order to:
· Understand the current state of industrial water reuse, including best practicesFor this project, MWH will have many partners and participants from municipal, governmental and industrial sectors in the US and overseas. The study participants will share information about current and future water recycling practices in their sector, as well as insight into the research needs, necessary business cases and implementation constraints and barriers of their industrial sector classification.
· Assess opportunities for future expansion of reuse applications
· Identify potential impediments that hinder the growth of reuse practices
· Identify economic, technological or regulatory drivers that could enhance water reuse development.
Dr Joseph Jacangelo, director of the Research Group at MWH, stated, "Today, we see many industries requiring substantial quantities of water to support their production processes and the promotion of environmental stewardship practices that reduce corporate water footprints can mitigate business risks considerably. This is why wastewater recovery and reuse is crucial to address water and energy scarcity issues".
The Research Group at MWH is a multi-disciplinary group of scientists, engineers and technicians specializing in civil, chemical and environmental engineering, microbiology, chemistry and environmental sciences. The group has published over 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals and technical conference proceedings and has provided over 120 presentations at regional, national and international technical conferences.
