The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that major industrial water users discharge approximately 285 billion gallons of wastewater daily. Nearly two-third of the total wastewater is the result of cooling operations. The use of water for cooling operations varies by industry and account for nearly 100 percent of the water use for electric power generation. In manufacturing industries, this can range from 10 percent in textile mills to 95 percent in beet-sugar refineries.
This increasing demand of water is taking its toll on the resources and the concept of zero discharge, total reuse with no wastewater being released into the environment is fast becoming a norm.
This 3-hour course will discuss cooling water conservation, clean water regulations and general methods to reduce water use and costs.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
