Zero Discharge Wastewater

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description On January 23, 2006, the MA OTA and Columbia Manufacturing, Inc. hosted a "Technology in Process" (TIP) seminar at the company's Westfield, MA facility. The main focus of the seminar was on Columbia's zero discharge wastewater treatment system that is part of their upgraded chrome metal plating line. The technology they selected was a CASTion vacuum distillation unit to treat the rinse water streams from the plating line. With this technology, Columbia eliminated the discharge of 150,000 gallons of water per day.

A case study on Columbia's success is available at: http://www.mass.gov/envir/ota/publications/case_studies1.htm
