Ingevity's wood-based AquaNuchar® carbon helps make city water safe from Mother Nature


The benefits of Ingevity's AquaNuchar powdered activated carbon for
municipal water needs are being highlighted in a recently released video
about a North Carolina-based water authority who's able to exceed some
of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's requirements regulating
byproducts that form during the water disinfection process.

The video shares the experience of Orange Water and Sewer Authority
(OWASA), an award-winning provider of water, sewer and reclaimed water
services based in Carrboro, N.C., who is able to exceed federal and
state drinking water standards by using Ingevity's AquaNuchar, ensuring
the safety of over 83,000 customers.

AquaNuchar is a wood-based activated carbon with an almost 100-year
history of successful use in water purification. Its unique composition
means treated water has greater purity in a shorter amount of time while
using less carbon.

"AquaNuchar provides the adsorption needed to remove dissolved organic
compounds in the water treatment process, and its unique adsorptive
capacity enables water utilities to dose less AquaNuchar than would be
required with other carbons," explained Tim Byrne, senior applications
engineer at Ingevity. "Ingevity helps water utilities meet and exceed
many of the EPA's removal requirements, save money, and ultimately keep
their customers happy."
