Water Quality Products Magazine has published a case study on the Silver Bullet Water Treatment solutions for a Northern California indoor plant cultivation facility.
“By implementing the water treatment design, the grower was able to achieve significant economic and operational benefits, including:
Avoided discharging untreated constituents or adding additional wastewater treatment processes
Reduced reliability and demand on municipal water utilities for source water
Capitalized on reusing synthetic nutrient fertilizers and reducing operational costs associated with treating additional incoming source water
Compliance with regulatory statutes that require all future commercial cultivation facilities to integrate zero-liquid discharge standards
Avoided costly future retrofits by integrating water collection and reuse into the facility’s initial design-build
Using the Solution, the customer has been able to implement a successful closed-loop water management strategy and has begun to recycle nutrients to offset operational costs. By collecting, treating and blending the irrigation runoff, many macro-and micro-plan nutrients can be reintroduced into the nutrient formula.”
