Elementis Installs

November 14, 2005

Elementis Specialties has broken ground for a new water treatment plant to be installed at the company’s Charleston, WV facility. The $3.2 million water purification system will produce near drinking-quality water for reuse in manufacture. Eventually this will reduce the amount of wastewater sent to the Charleston sanitary waste treatment facility by 300,000 gallons a day, Elementis executives said.
The company is a member of the American Chemistry Council’s Respon-sible Care program. The installation of the system will allow the plant to recycle and reuse 90% of the water previously discharged from the manufacturing process. “Cutting down on our use of tap water will benefit the city, particularly during times of drought,” said Gary Cammorato, plant manager.
