Nalco Wins 2011 WateReuse Award

Award honors co. for commitment and performance in water reuse and recycling

Nalco received the 2011 WateReuse Equipment/Manufacturer Award from the WateReuse Assn. at its annual symposium in Phoenix last week. The award honors outstanding commitment and performance by a specialty-equipment product or manufacturer.

"Nalco has been involved in a number of innovative commercial, industrial and institutional projects that have enabled significant reuse and recycling of water around the world," said WateReuse Assn. Executive Director Wade Miller.

Nalco 3D TRASAR systems are operating at more than 18,000 customer locations worldwide and have helped save more than 346 billion gal of water since it was introduced.

The 3D TRASAR program allows cooling towers to operate longer with less makeup water, cutting overall water use as well as saving energy. Because the system responds quickly and accurately, customers can use water from a variety of sources that contain variable amounts of dissolved minerals and suspended solids.
