Graphic Packaging to Use Recycled Wastewater

Graphic Packaging will use recycled wastewater from a new $20 million project that will reduce water use at the Sparta Aquifer in southern Arkansas and northern Louisiana, according to a report in the Monroe News-Star.

According to the report, the city of West Monroe, LA, is building a 45,000-square-foot water treatment facility along the Ouachita River, near an existing treatment facility. The aquifer supplies almost 71 million gallons of water demand daily, though it is only being replenished with 51 million gallons. The project will recycle 10 million gallons for use in Graphic Packaging’s production process. Construction is likely to complete early next year.

Environmental Leader previously reported on another wastewater development in Louisiana involving Siemens and the Petroleum Environmental Research Forum. The partnership is collaborating to test a new biological reactor for industrial wastewater treatment.

GE meanwhile, is collaborating with Consol Energy on a new water recycling system using advanced filtration membranes and thermal water treatment technology that will allow Consol to recycle 99 percent of the water it uses at its coal mine in Oakwood, VA.
