Reducing Water Usage and Water Effluents

Zep offers several environmentally focused solutions to reduce water consumption and mitigate wastewater.

NUVODA MOB Process: The MOBTM (Mobile Organic Biofilm) process is a novel and sustainable wastewater treatment process developed by Nuvoda to improve settleability, increase treatment capacity, provide simultaneous nutrient removal, and optimize process stability.

PurWater: This water recovery system dramatically reduces your water and sewer costs by 60% or more while delivering a high-quality wash.

Zep Parts Washing: Zep’s exclusive multi-stage filtration system is the best way to effectively clean dirty, greasy parts at a lower cost and reduced risk. Used parts washing solvents are one of the largest hazardous streams generated by industries. Zep parts washers greatly reduce waste solvents and help facilities reduce costs through efficiency.

VersaClaim Pro System: This system reduces water consumption substantially while also reducing caustics usage in major areas by up to 90%. It goes years without a need for replacement, making it a good long-term sustainability choice.
