What is the importance of Industrial Water Reuse?
The scarcity of potable water is the most serious problem that society is facing today. Despite, the fact that water covers one-third of our land, our sources of drinkable water are limited.
However, modern technology has enabled us to create purified drinking water sources, from wastewater generated by various industries. The trend of wastewater management has accelerated in recent years, with industrial wastewater treatment being one of the most prevalent and important.
Wastewater Treatment in Industries
Industrial wastewater treatment is intended to encompass the instruments and procedures, used to handle wastewater generated as a by-product of business operations in various industries. The wastewater is now reused after it has been treated.
Because, almost every industry uses a significant amount of water in their day-to-day business operations, the volume of wastewater has steadily increased. Industrial wastewater treatment patterns are intended to reduce wastewater production, or recycle it, before it is discharged to other sources during the manufacturing process.
Water scarcity can be solved through industrial water reuse!
Water scarcity has become the primary motivator for water reuse initiatives in India, alongside desalination strategies. Water professionals in these water-stressed areas are increasingly relying on reuse, reclamation, desalination, and other practices, to supplement their available water resources.
Concerns about water quality can also influence water reuse decisions in many states. This becomes critical for industries because, they frequently consume water in quantities equivalent to communities. If every industry chooses to reuse water, the global problem of water scarcity will be alleviated.
What is Industrial Water Reuse?
The process of treating wastewater produced from one source, so that it can be reused in the same process or recycled for another, is known as industrial water reuse and recycling.
In an industrial plant, possibilities for wastewater reuse and recycling may include:
· Recycling of general wastewater,
· Cooling tower failure,
· Blow-down of a boiler,
· RO rejection water,
· Ion exchange waters,
· Rainwater collection.
Netsol Water, a pioneer of water treatment, provides all of these processes in industrial water treatment plants, for every industry, including sewage treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, effluent treatment plants, etc.
Advantages of Industrial Water Reuse
- Improving water supply availability and quality,
- Lowering fresh water usage and associated costs to optimize production costs,
- Reduced discharge costs as regulatory compliance becomes more stringent,
- Lessens the amount of water consumed,
- Lowers water bills,
- Reduces the amount of wastewater produced,
- Implementing reuse or treat-and-reuse strategies necessitates an initial investment, which can be costly,
- Aids in the selection of the three Rs and makes the working environment more sustainable.
Depending on water quality requirements, space constraints, and budgetary considerations, alternative methods for recycling or reusing industrial water are available.
Lower freshwater costs, wastewater flows, and a smaller water footprint could all be advantages. Due to the increased availability of clean water, operational efficiency and sustainability, as well as production capacity, can be improved.
How can we assist?
Each industry has unique wastewater sources that must be thoroughly assessed, in order to find the best treatment and reuse solution. Netsol Water can help with these challenges, like increased process demand, stricter regulatory compliance, water and discharge costs, and corporate sustainability initiatives.
