12.004: Cooling Water Cost Comparison Model
12.006: Electrotechnologies for Waste Reclamation

Project Description: This program provides knowledge and tools to help production, manufacturing and electronics industries use electrotechnologies to solve environmental issues such as water treatment and waste reclamation in an informed, cost-effective manner.

This project supports the PIER Program objectives of:
• Supporting the development of new electricity applications to solve environmental problems by providing information and evaluation tools that help businesses apply electrotechnologies for water treatment and waste reclamation.
• Providing environmentally sound electricity by expanding the use of electrotechnologies that replace or supplement processes that may harm the environment.

Proposed Outcomes:
1. Develop a cooling water cost comparison model that allows users to evaluate and compare the costs of ozone cooling water technologies. The model will be available as an Excel spreadsheet that allows insertion of specific data to be analyzed.
2. Develop information on electrotechnologies for waste reclamation to support and promote the use of efficient, environmentally sound reclamation and recycling processes.

Actual Outcomes:
Cooling Water Cost Comparison Model
• A compact disk containing an Excel spreadsheet cost comparison model and examples was produced and delivered in 2002.

Electrotechnologies for Waste Reclamation
• A technical report—Electrotechnologies for Waste Reclamation (1005869)—was developed and made available as a downloadable PDF file or delivered on a compact disk.

Project Status: This project is complete.
