Cover Story (view full-size image): Water resources are increasingly under pressure because of climate change, droughts, and intense development of civil and industrial activities. The implementation of water reuse solutions is an urgent issue. The reuse of wastewaters generated from sanitizing operations of industrial or public floors, after treatment in a portable device, was proposed. The wastewater was treated through a combination of coarse filtration and clarification processes and reused for floor cleaning operations for 110 cycles. The quality of the water was monitored, and it did not significantly worse cycle after cycle. The proposed treatment allowed not only saving fresh water, in the measure of 18,000 liters over 60 cleaning cycles, but also reducing the cost of water usage by approximately 50%. View this paper.
