Calculate the benefits of wastewater recycling

Clean water is a precious resource. Our Covanta Environmental Solutions team can help tailor a pretreatment solution to your unique wastewater challenge. 

Wastewater pretreatment is a critical step in getting water ready for a traditional wastewater treatment facility where it can be safely reintroduced back to the environment. Use our Liquid Waste Calculator to see just how much of a difference you can make.

You will recycle enough water to:

• Provide
individuals with drinking water for one year

• Supply homes with water for one month

• Grow pounds of tomatoes

Depending on your specific wastewater, pre-treatment through Covanta Environmental Solutions can also:

  • help reduce demand on local publicly owned treatment plants (POTWs)
  • recover oil for fuel blending
  • recover solids for compost or energy recovery
  • remove contaminants unsuitable for traditional wastewater treatment

Wastewater treatability can vary significantly. Results are illustrative and are based on average pre-treatment results across wastewaters historically treated by CES. Water equivalencies based on U.S. EPA,
NASEM, USGS consumption data and Water Education Foundation irrigation requirements data.
