For our upcoming June 28 Masters of Sustainability Webinar

Please get registered SAP to meet Steve Posner, VP of Global Cycle and we look at waste water recycling.  

Here's some info on them:

Globalcycle, Inc. (“Globalcycle”) is the only fully permitted industrial/ commercial wastewater treatment and recycling plant in Massachusetts. Globalcycle operates pursuant to a Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Individual Reclaimed Water Discharge Permit. This permit allows Globalcycle to accept various nonhazardous industrial wastewaters from off-site sources. Globalcycle uses solids filtration systems and activated carbon to recycle wastewaters into a reusable water source for industrial applications
Globalcycle, Inc. (“Globalcycle”) is permitted to accept various non-RCRA/TSCA regulated industrial wastewaters from off-site, in bulk or in containers and is currently permitted to recycle 96,000 gallons per day.

Typical industrial and commercial wastewater sources include:
• Installation of groundwater monitoring wells (commonly referred to as investigation derived wastewaters or IDW) or well purge water
• Water used to clean equipment, trucks and buildings
• Decontamination wastewaters
• Cooling tower wastewaters/semi-solids
• Groundwater from underground storage tank installations
• Storm, surface and excavation wastewaters
• Frac tank clean-outs
• Storm water catch basin cleaning semi-solids
• Wastewaters that only contain a sheen of oil
• Aqueous based wastewaters
• Groundwater from UST petroleum leaks (e.g. "D018" benzene exempt)
• Marina boat wash waters

The recycling operation consisting of numerous storage tanks and treatment equipment (e.g. for solids and organics removal and pH adjustment), which  is situated within a secondary containment system, inside our facility.

The pre-qualification process is as follows:
  • Completion of the Globalcycle waste profile form
  • Provide the following analytical: Total VOC (by method 8260), Total SVOC (by method 8270), total suspended solids, total dissolved solids and any other suspected RCRA or TSCA contaminants (using generator knowledge)

Water recycling provides enormous environmental benefits, such as:
• Recycling wastewater can decrease the discharge of effluents that may damage and pollute the ecosystems and marine life in bodies of water.
• Recycling significantly reduces the generator's liabilities under EPA CERCLA (Superfund).
