Brown bag seminar, “Condensate Collection in Arizona,” presented by the WRRC (Water Resources Research Center) of the University of Arizona. Dr. Diana Glawe asks, “You know that trickle of water you see exiting the pipe connected to your home air conditioning system?” For large commercial buildings condensate water from heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems can add up to more than a million gallons per year. Routing this water to the sewage drain not only wastes water that can be used for non-potable applications on-site, it also unnecessarily burdens the city’s water treatment system. As you can imagine, the drought across the southwestern United States has prompted a serious look at alternative water sources, like HVAC condensate. Dr. Glawe will cover the fundamentals of a condensate colle ction and use system, the expected performance in Arizona, and how to overcome common challenges that hinder return on investment. She is Associate Professor, Engineering Science Dept., Trinity University, with 20 years of engineering experience from research in supersonic propulsion to biomimetic nanotechnology. Location: WRRC Sol Resnick Conference Room (350 N. Campbell Ave.), Tucson. The WRRC offers remote access to Brown Bag Seminars via GoToWebinar.
