Write solids into your next RFP (Request for Proposal) for water treatment
Whether you’re building new construction or reviewing your current water treatment program, consider solids for a safer, more sustainable and cost-effective program over liquids. Solids can be tailored for a single building, a large facility, or a mega-campus.
Carbon Footprint Reduction Example
A Cooling Tower on a 20 story office building produces 1,000 tons refrigeration. Estimated annual liquid chemistry, in 55 gallon drums, used to treat the water in this Cooling Tower would be:
• 12 drums of inhibition chemistry
• 4 drums of microbiological chemistry
• 4 drums of dispersant
In this example, the twenty 55 gallon drums are shipped 600 miles to the office building in trucks using diesel fuel.
Switching from traditional water treatment to APTech Group blended solid concentrate products would generate the following Carbon Dioxide (CO2) reductions (also known as Carbon Footprint savings):
|Transport fuel savings||826 lbs of CO2per year|
|Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) savings||1,776 lbs of CO2per year|
|Plastic used reduced||1,084 lbs of CO2per year|
|Total Savings||3,686 lbs of CO2per year|
These savings are comparable to leaving your car in the garage for 173 days and walking or taking public transportation. (Based on a vehicle that averages 10,000 miles / year @ 25mpg).
