What is Process Water?
Process water is water that is used as ultrapure water, DM water, cooling water, rinse water, washwater or brewing water, or as a transport medium. Process water has a variety of industrial applications, and different compositions depending on its use. North Water supplies process water for every application.
If the water quality is not adequate for a production process with a special application, process water is used.
Sustainability and Cost Savings
Dutch government policy is geared towards discouraging the use of drinking water by industrial firms. Due to the rising price of mains water, coupled with the costs of wastewater treatment and discharge, industrial firms are increasingly resorting to alternative sources of process water.
Using process water from a source other than mains water is a sustainable solution. Possible sources include surface water, brackish water, groundwater, seawater and reused wastewater. These process water sources offer a favorable and sustainable alternative to drinking water for all industrial applications.
North Water can help you achieve cost savings in your water supply through optimal use of the right source of process water.
Reuse of industrial wastewater or cooling water is one of the most technically efficient ways to produce demineralized water or even ultrapure water. This way, you buy less water and have less wastewater left over, which improves sustainability and lowers costs.
North Water DBFO Service
With the DBFO model, North Water gives you peace of mind. We Design, Build, Finance and Operate full-scale treatment facilities for clients of every stripe.
North Water not only builds the installation, but also takes care of its management and operation. The client does not have to invest in its own installation, and can concentrate on its own operations. This gives you a fast, suitable and worry-free solution for all your water needs, and at lower cost.
