MIDDLETOWN, Conn., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Clearwater Systems and its industry-leading non-chemical water treatment solution, Dolphin WaterCare ®, will be exhibitors and Silver-level sponsors at the 2012 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. For over a decade, the Dolphin WaterCare system has proven to be a compelling option for architects and engineers working to achieve LEED ® certification for their building projects. Entering Greenbuild, the system has earned LEED points on more than 350 projects including both new construction and existing buildings.
"We are extremely proud to showcase a water treatment system that delivers tremendous environmental savings, eliminates the use of hazardous chemicals and reduces our customers' operating costs," stated Anupam Bhargava, CEO of Clearwater Systems. "With the award of LEED points on over 350 installations, we continue to validate that on a dollar-per-LEED-point basis, there are few options as sustainable as Dolphin WaterCare."
Water consumption from buildings continues to grow with over 4.9 million commercial buildings in the U.S. using an estimated 10 billion gallons of water daily; that is roughly the equivalent of the water flowing over Niagara Falls for a period of four hours. The Dolphin WaterCare system improves building resource efficiency at the heart of the building – the HVAC system – by reducing potable water use and wastewater discharge while achieving superior corrosion, scale and bacteria control. This unique blend of benefits helps facility owners and operators further their sustainability initiatives and achieve LEED certification.Importantly, the Dolphin WaterCare system includes ongoing service performed by Clearwater's team of HVAC and water treatment experts. "We've recently transformed our business model to meet the needs of our global customers," added Bhargava. "Our ability to provide customers with holistic water treatment solutions, reduce operating expenses and eliminate the life-cycle management of hazardous chemicals enables Dolphin WaterCare to revolutionize an entire industry. Providing meaningful impact towards preserving our most precious natural resources is our mission."
