LT Technologies Selected to Supply Water Purification and Environmental Systems for New Science Center at Georgetown University
Cost-effective and innovative products will help new facility to achieve environmental goals and improve operational efficiency.
LT Technologies, a leading manufacturer and designer of advanced water purification, filtration and chemical treatment systems, today announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply systems for rain water reclamation and reuse, as well as an ultrapure water production for Georgetown University's new science center. The new Science Center, projected to be completed by 2011, will be a state-of-the art research and teaching center for biology, chemistry, and physics.
A key factor in the selection of LT Technologies was the company's expertise in sustainable water systems. One of the goals set by planners of the new facility was for it to be designed as a "green" building with the goal of obtaining a Silver LEED rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in several key areas of human and environmental health, including water savings, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality.
The LT Technology systems that will be deployed at the new facility are intended to help it achieve the stringent Silver LEED Certification level. The company will provide an innovative rain water harvesting system that will be fully automated and will create clean water for non-potable uses throughout the entire complex.
"Our rain water harvesting system saves an enormous amount of water from running down the storm drain systems, and instead, efficiently reclaims it and makes it available for an array of uses," said LT Technologies CEO Tom Belmont. "When we started developing our system, we were familiar with some of the older specifications out there. But we knew we could build a better, smaller and more affordable system. Now, with nearly two years of development work behind us, we can offer customers a very advanced yet cost-effective solution. We're very excited about the future prospects of this technology."
LT Technologies has also been awarded as part of the contract to manufacture a high-purity water system to be utilized in the building's laboratory environments. Added Belmont: "LT Technologies is excited to be affiliated with such a prestigious and forward-thinking institution, and we're proud to be providing, in some small way, the innovation and tools needed to advance Georgetown University's excellence in research and laboratory sciences.
