Water is used in many industrial processes for a wide variety of application including washing, diluting, cooling, heating, transporting, sanitizing and processing. So much water is required for these processes that the cost of the water as a raw materials for the plant is becoming an increasing concern especially with growing water scarcity around the world.
To combat growing cost of water, industrial plants are looking more and more to improve how they are using their resource in their industrial processes. One important way for plants to reduce their water consumption is to reuse as much as they can. Water reuse allows water that would have otherwise been discarded to another process in the plant.
