Industrial Water Management: A Systems Approach, 2nd Edition (0816908753) cover image


This CD-ROM shows how to systematically incorporate the principles of water conservation, recycling, and reuse into the design of new plants, retrofits of existing systems, and technology development. Technology summaries and case studies that support this systematic approach to water reuse, as well as recommendations for further research, are included.

Included in the price of this CD-ROM is an additional chapter, available in December 2002, detailing water reuse opportunities by industry. The chapter will address the general uses of water in industry, their associated energy costs, and energy management as related to water use and water use reduction.
