Proximity to rivers, lakes, streams, or large surfaces, where a lot of rainwater accumulates, offers low-cost alternatives to using municipal water for industrial processes. Ultra-filtration makes existent natural water sources usable, thus reducing operating costs. Dirt particles as well as biological contaminants are removed by the filter. Ultra-filtration provides water that can be treated further or used for industrial applications straight away. Using surface water in combination with a recirculation unit that uses the same process water repeatedly is an even more attractive solution.
