Wastewater: A Reliable Water Resource  

By B.Durham and L. Patria - Veolia Water |

    Water is an essential resource for the chemical process industries (CPI), with steam, cooling water and process water as just a few examples of its many applications. When readily available, this essential commodity is often taken for granted. There is, however, a risk of losing the availability of classic water resources such as groundwater, river water or potable water for an industrial site. In a drought situation, for example, priority is given to a potable water supply for the community. Additional restrictions on water resources can arise from local water-management plans or regulations. Ensuring water-supply reliability is a key issue for the CPI. In addition to optimizing water consumption, water-supply reliability can also, or instead, be gained from recycling and reuse of water sources, including internal streams (reclaimed wastewater, boiler and cooling blowdown, rainwater run-off, condensate recovery or remediated groundwater) and alternative, external sources (reclaimed municipal wastewater or desalination of either brackish water or seawater). Industrial water reuse has increased substantially in the past 15 years through the practice of potable substitution, where reclaimed industrial wastewater is used…
