Irvine, CA, September 26, 2013 – Pacific Clean Water Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: PCWT) through its subsidiary Western Water Consultants Inc. (WWC) is working on eliminating the need for holding ponds at the Garlic Company.
PCWT has worked with The Garlic Company on water conservation and wastewater handling projects over the past four years. WWC began by targeting the poor quality of makeup water by applying CWT-504 in the re-circulated water in the cooling tower. WWC believes water savings using CWT-504 (blend of polymeric dispersants and corrosion inhibitors) have resulted in 30% lower water consumption and have maintained clean heat exchange surfaces lowering energy costs. In addition, Western Water Consultants applied WW-1601 and WW-1100 to the wastewater pond, helping remove contaminants from the waste stream. This removal process allows the land application of the cleaner water and promotes quicker settling of the water and lower usage rates. By applying these programs, we believe that the Garlic Co. has had a significant drop in their energy and water use.
Now by the request of Garlic Co. management, WWC is working towards improving the handling of wastewater by greater reduction of BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand), TSS (Total Suspended Solids) and making their process more continuous. Ultimately the goal would be to reduce or remove the wastewater pond altogether and improve water settling in land applications.
“This has been an honor and privilege to be able to work with one of the largest and esteemed farming networks in the San Joaquin Valley. We believe that their commitment and focus to water conservation will dramatically improve their results and quality,” said Craig McMillan.
