Strategic Sustainable Water Solutions: What Works and What Doesn't
Abstract:Large technology-oriented companies have both responsibilities and opportunities to use water resources wisely. This involves efficient use of water (conservation), as well as responsible control of contaminants in its discharge streams (pollution control). In addition, there are opportunities to leverage technology solutions to opportunities outside these companies as products or services. The chemical industry is an example of an industry that actively participates in each of these water-related activities. The purpose of this paper is to review examples of activities in each of these areas where Dow Chemical is involved, and examine success and failures. It covers two aspects: the chemical industry as a water user, and as a supplier of clean water technology.
