Water Efficiency Guide for Laboratories

    Research output: NRELBrochure


    This publication is one in series of best practice guides for 'Laboratories for the 21st Century,' a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program. It is intended for those who plan to design and construct public and private-sector laboratory buildings. This guide describes how water efficiency can be improved in alaboratory by making a few changes in types of equipment, such as water treatment and sterilizing systems, and how alternative sources of water can be effectively integrated into a laboratory's operations.
