Non-Chemical Water Treatment - A Pollution Prevention Case Study

January 4, 2012

Since 1994, the Schick company of Milford has systematically eliminated the use of conditioning chemicals in its cooling tower water by installing commercially available electrically powered water conditioning units. The company now operates all its cooling towers without the use of conditioning chemicals. This has dramatically reduced conditioning chemical costs, associated management costs and regulatory burdens. These changes have resulted in a cleaner environment, improved profitability and a healthier workplace.
