Green Water Designs
Water purification systems reduce, reuse, and recycle
Thermo Fisher Scientific, Milford, Mass, has engineered new water purification systems with smart green designs that reduce, reuse, and recycle materials. The use of high-quality resin in Thermo Scientific cartridges provides the highest quality of ultrapure water and extends the lifetime of the cartridge itself, reducing the need to reorder, ship, handle, and dispose of expired cartridges. Additionally, all purification units operate in a low-energy mode after dispensing, reducing power consumption without sacrificing water quality. Cartridge casings and endcaps are also made from virgin polypropylene and are fully recyclable. The PURE (Protecting and Utilizing Resources for our Environment) recycling program is designed to reduce landfill waste and cost by recycling nearly 100% of Thermo Scientific cartridges. The company’s new Waterbook, available online, also details green water designs.
