Industrial Water Reuse and Wastewater Minimization
Money-saving water strategies for industry. In the U.S. alone, process industries, petrochemicals, pulp and paper, metals and minerals, and many others ¨ will generate over 120 million tons of wastewater by the year 2000. Industrial Water Reuse and Wastewater Minimization, by James G. Mann and Y.A. Liu, describes water reuse and wastewater minimization principles and practices that can be used worldwide. Relatively easy to use and surprisingly inexpensive, the methods youĂll find in this important guide - particularly water-pinch technology ¨ are not only ecologically sound, but significantly lower manufacturing costs. Concepts are illustrated with abundant charts, tables, and real-life case studies. This resource includes a CD-ROM at no additional cost. Its Water/Target software generates freshwater use/wastewater generation targets, and suggests ways to reach them....lets you isolate bottlenecks limiting water reuse and find new reuse opportunities - all without the expense ofdetailed engineering designs.
