Hey, we can do that too...

As WCTI begins to capture more and more of the cooling tower treatment Market, with its innovative, patented sustainable natural green chemistry process in water conservation, the major's (left up to your own determination) are coming out with a "me too" approach. Where were the majors before WCTI began to eat into their market? Of course, some majors have had zero bleed approaches to water treatment, but frankly they were too expensive for most institutional markets (very low ROI) and still did not address the total discharge of solids from the process. Many still have to use sustained chemical feed to achieve this before, during or after the towers bleed. I call this their "designer" make-up and sewer treatment process. Oh, by the way, the revenue that they might lose on the lower water use, is made up in the equipment sold or chemicals used in their designer process. T heir process employs expensive "pretreatment" and "post ble

WCTI’s Green Tech Conserves W ater used in Large-scale Cooling Systems by Robin Yeager on 10/17/2009 in Water You gotta admire an entrepreneur who believes so keenly in the environmental benefits of his technology that he isn’t interested in selling out and risking the burial of his inventions and innovations by a corporate competitor. Dan Duke, president of Water Conservation Technology International (WCTI), has patented a technology that eliminates “blowdown” (wastewater discharge) from cooling towers, which reduces the water required to run large-scale air conditioning systems by roughly 30%. This alone is enough to merit a Green Star award to WCTI. Another bonus of Duke’s system is that it doesn’t require toxic chemicals. Instead, key components are rock salt and recycled water. If you aren’t familiar with cooling towers, you can find an explanation here . Also, a Boeing article explains Boeing’s success and savings with the WCTI process.
