Non-chemical Water Treatment
Preliminary Technology Assessment
What is This Technology?
Non-chemical water treatment technologies include electric field, magnetic field, electro-magnetic field, ultra-violet (UV), cavitation, and ozone generation devices. They are all designed to replace all or some conventional chemicals used to treat water circulated through chiller condensers and cooling towers.
Why is GSA Interested?
Measurement & Verification
The Green Proving Ground program has commissioned Facilities Dynamics Engineering, Inc. to perform measurement and verification (M&V) on non-chemical water treatment at nine test sites across the country. Findings from that investigation will be available in Summer 2015.
