ChemTreat Recognizes Air Liquide with Power of Water Award

GLEN ALLEN, Va., (May 13, 2024) – ChemTreat, Inc. (ChemTreat) is proud to recognize the Air Liquide Bayport facility in Houston, Texas with our Power of Water Award. This award honors ChemTreat customers who exhibit exceptional dedication and commitment to environmental sustainability.

At the Bayport facility, Air Liquide and ChemTreat collaborated on an initiative called “Runtime Extension and Lower Environmental Impact Project Using Chlorine Dioxide for Disinfection Treatment of the Reverse Osmosis Plant.” The teams worked together on enhancing the treatment of plant supply water to optimize water consumption and maintain system cleanliness while extending runtime between cleanings.

By implementing a chlorine dioxide-based treatment process, Air Liquide was able to save over 273,000 gallons of water annually while significantly reducing chemical usage. This program improved the efficiency of the plant while helping Air Liquide meet their environmental goals around water savings.

“Air Liquide is honored to be presented the 2024 Power of Water Award by ChemTreat,” said Andrew Garnett, President, Air Liquide Large Industries North America. “The collaboration between Air Liquide and ChemTreat to continuously innovate sustainability initiatives that benefit the environment is a direct reflection of our fundamental responsibility to environmental performance. Thank you to the Bayport facility and our procurement teams for your environmental leadership.”

Members of ChemTreat’s team presented the Power of Water Award to Air Liquide in an Earth Day ceremony.
