A New Approach to Wastewater Disposal: Cost-Effective Solutions for Non-Hazardous Industrial Wastewater Generators
Abstract:Formed in 2005, NewStream is an environmental services company specializing in high technology industrial wastewater treatment and high purity process water. Originally built for Texas Instruments (TI), the facility has a treatment capacity of up to 800 gallons per minute of wastewater and the ability to deliver 325 gpm of high purity process water. Rather than let the state-of-the-art facility be razed, the founders of NewStream have transformed the former single-user facility into a successful commercial enterprise. Having received the first permit of its type ever to be issued in Massachusetts, NewStream now receives an average of 10 truckloads per day of non-hazardous wastewater from off-site sources. Additionally, the same network of pipelines that once allowed all of TI's on-site manufacturing operations to send their wastewater to the plant now allows NewStream to treat wastewater from tenants on site.
