Elementis Specialties installs water treatment plant in WV. (Industry News).

* Groundbreaking recently took place for a new water treatment plant being installed at Elementis Specialties' facility in Charleston, WV. The $3.2 million water purification system will produce near drinking-quality water for reuse in manufacturing, which will eventually reduce the amount of wastewater sent to the Charleston sanitary waste treatment facility by more than 300,000 gallons per day, according to the company.

By installing this water purification technology system that uses an ultra-filtration reverse osmosis process, the plant will recycle and reuse 90% of the water previously discharged from its manufacturing processes.

Elementis plans to begin water treatment operations on March 31 and to be fully operational by July.
