JOHNSTOWN, Penn. – Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) and Water Energy Technologies announced a partnership for collaboration on a first-of-its-kind green laundry system to benefit large commercial laundry operations. Engineers and scientists have integrated two proven technologies into a treatment system that significantly reduces water usage by safely and reliably processing and recycling 90% of greywater generated by laundry operations. This energy-efficient, scalable, and fully-automated solution will save water, energy and time. In addition, it will eliminate chemicals and reduce maintenance.
Water Energy’s proprietary ozone treatment technology was originally developed for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Ozone works 3,000 times faster at destroying bacteria than chlorine bleach. Commercial laundry facilities report their sheets and linens feel like new when washed in ozonated water.
Concurrent Technologies Corporation’s innovative water recycling system was originally developed for the Department of Defense. The system relies upon a three-stage temperature-tolerant filtration sequence. Its uniqueness comes from incorporating separation media not traditionally used in water filtration. In addition, customized control logic optimizes backwash recirculation and increases the overall processing rate. CTC was awarded a prestigious Edison Award for this technology.
“Concurrent Technologies Corporation has a long history of partnering with other innovative technology providers, and we’re pleased to be working closely with Water Energy on this important project,” says Jeff Grabarek, CTC senior director, Business Development. “We look forward to combining the skills and know-how of our two great companies to offer a world-class water system that will help our clients save energy and decrease costs.”
Bob Beddingfield, president, Water Energy Technologies adds, “Water Energy Technologies has worked for more than three decades to bring innovative ideas, advanced technology and professional consulting services to the commercial laundry industry. We are proud to have joined forces with Concurrent Technologies Corporation to provide a superior finished product and create a ‘Green Solutions Team’ focused on providing effective and affordable solutions to save on water, energy and chemical costs.”
