Industrial water quality is critical in the processing, washing, diluting, cooling, and transportation of most manufactured products. According to the Water Resources Group, the demand for water is rapidly increasing, and is expected to exceed the current supply by 40% by 2030. Industry realizes that production methods that waste water jeopardize long-range operation plans and production costs. Consequently, over 90% of businesses in water-intensive industries and over 60% of business in non-water-intensive industries have developed a formal water strategy.
RJ Lee Group supports these companies as they enhance stewardship of water and troubleshoot water treatment processes. RJ Lee Group has more than 200 scientists, engineers, and technicians who provide application-specific industrial water quality testing that goes beyond what is typically provided by environmental laboratories. Their diverse technical backgrounds and experience provide laboratory and technical problem-solving support throughout your manufacturing and production processes.
