Applied Water Solutions, Burlington, Mass., was contacted by an industrial client that planned to move its manufacturing facility to an area with strict limitations on water discharge. Applied Water Solutions created a process flow diagram using multiple water purification technologies for pure-water generation, water recycling and offsite disposal of solids. From the flow diagram, the water treatment company then developed a process instrument diagram that defined the project in more detail.

The zero water discharge project included a complete set of submittals of all major components, equipment fabrication, site-acceptance test and system commissioning. To contact Applied Water, go to
