Major Data Center in India Reduces Water Consumption by 450,000 liters per day
May 22, 2014
A 2.3 million square foot data center located in an industrial park in Bangalore, India, was facing the dual challenge of meeting government discharge requirements and reducing water costs. The only solution was to treat and recycle facility effluent for irrigation and cooling tower makeup. This approach would ensure that the facility met its discharge requirements and lowered its water costs.
Given the outcome of the assessment, Nalco developed an onsite mobile unit with all ancillary piping, pumps, controls and tankage to support the main technology components of an ultrafiltration program followed by reverse osmosis. The program reduced water consumption by 164,250,000 liters annually.
