TIEEP Water Forum, Thursday, May 6, 2021, 4:20-5:50 pm

Theme: Reducing Water Use in Manufacturing Plants.

Despite the hurricanes and high rainfall along the Gulf Coast, we do experience times of drought and water shortages in Texas; and globally, access to clean water is a major sustainability concern. Water is also inextricably linked to energy: We need energy to pump and to manage water, and we use large amounts of water in our energy systems – for example, steam and cooling water. In this water forum, we explore tools and technologies for reducing water use in manufacturing plants. This includes presentations from two vendors on innovative processes and equipment, and one presentation on a DOE software package to aid understanding, managing, and improving water balances. Not only can these resources save water; they can also lead to energy savings, space savings, quality improvements, and reductions in capital and operating costs for new plants and revamps.
