Water reuse is the reclamation of water from wastewater plants for beneficial non-potable and potable uses. As fresh water supplies are approaching or have reached full allocation, water reuse is becoming a critical part of community water supplies.
Various water types are the subject of research into water reuse and include:
- Municipal wastewater
- Industrial wastewater
- Produced water
We are exploring technologies including:
- Desalination technologies
- Nutrient removal technologies
- Membrane bioreactors (MBR)
- Hybrid MBR/reverse osmosis (RO) systems
