Hospitals contribute to roughly seven percent of commercial water use in the United States. Hospitals use 35% of their water for domestic and restroom applications, 20% for cooling and heating and 15% for medical equipment operation. Other tasks like landscaping and laundry make up 7% and 9% of water use in hospitals, respectively.
Much of the water used for sanitization, treatment, HVAC and other hospital uses creates greywater that, while not suitable for drinking, can undergo treatment in nonpotable applications. A decentralized system that recycles greywater can work toward net-zero water at your facility.
