Webinar Series: Water Treatment Best Practices in Aerospace & Defense Production


1. Sustainability in Aerospace and Defense Production

Presented by Caitlin Berretta and Sam Mason

As growth has increased the demand for water, manufacturing facilities in the Aerospace and Defense sector are investigating alternate water sources and sustainable water use in order to decrease costs, reduce the size of the plant’s water footprint, and be good corporate citizens. Sustainable water practices are clearly the path forward but knowing where to start can be a significant and confusing challenge.

In this webinar, we will identify the common drivers for reducing and reusing water in Aerospace and Defense production and will discuss where and how plants can save time, money, and energy while reducing their water footprint. 


2. Wastewater Treatment and Water Reuse for Aerospace & Defense Applications

Presented by Chris Riley and Mark Korzenecki

Aerospace and defense manufacturing uses a number of metal finishing and cleaning processes that generate wastewater. Treatment options can vary depending on wastewater composition and local discharge requirements. This webinar will discuss the importance of wastewater characterization, treatment technologies, and how to determine the correct treatment process to effectively meet your discharge compliance and/or sustainability goals.


3. Digital Water Management for Reliable Water Quality

Presented by Chris Lucchesi and Mark Sampica

Water One® services provides a unique solution for Aerospace and Defense customers by combining key technologies with outcome-based water guarantees. Using remote monitoring, Evoqua can provide proactive, predictive services to maintain customer’s unique water needs. Combined with a predictable, levelized billing structure, the Water One solution is much easier to associate your costs with production. Additionally, since Water One services takes care of all maintenance, expendables, and repairs, your water system costs become stable and predictable.
