Food, Water, Energy Nexus

Wastewater from industries represents a significant portion of the total wastewater discharged worldwide. Approximately 255,000 mgd of industrial wastewater, treated by chemical, physical, and biological processes, is discharged daily into U.S. waterways. Industries commonly reuse wastewater and process water as water availability becomes scarce, and they are challenged to provide environmentally sustainable wastewater treatment while reducing compliance costs and maintaining value for their businesses.
