Xylem, a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, was awarded the 2014 WateReuse Equipment Manufacturer of the Year by the WateReuse Association at their 29th Annual Symposium in Dallas, Texas.
Xylem was awarded for its leading-edge work to optimize advanced water treatment processes for potable reuse, including projects in Florida and California. Xylem has invested in a fleet of advanced treatment pilot equipment to demonstrate solutions for water reuse that are both safe and sustainable. Xylem partners with utilities, engineers, and leading organizations like the WateReuse Research Foundation to implement the safest solutions for reuse. A few of Xylem’s advanced reuse technologies include Leopold’s Oxelia ozone-enhanced biologically-active filtration process (O3-BAF), WEDECO’s MiPRO advanced oxidation processes (AOP), and WEDECO’s Ultraviolet (UV) and Ozone disinfection solutions. These technologies are designed to provide the highest level of treatment to ensure protection of human health and the environment by meeting the most stringent regulations. Xylem’s pilot equipment and treatability testing services are essential tools for the design and development of the full-scale projects that communities around the world need to become more resilient to water scarcity.
Xylem is also an equipment provider for the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center, Northern California’s largest water recycling facility, which won the 2014 WateReuse Project of the Year.
