WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-802 (2017): Sustainable Water Treatment
Electronic Download (PDF)
Media is a business-to-business standard that focuses on the sustainability of the two most common treatment media used in water filter systems: activated carbon and ion exchange resin. It evaluates the sustainability of these media products based on core attributes common to both products types (health and safety, emissions and consumptions, and end-of-life), as well as product type specific requirements (modules) based on the specific environmental impacts of either the activated carbon, or ion exchange resin. WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-802 is a complementary standard to WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-803: Sustainable Drinking Water Treatment Systems. Manufacturers interested in certifying to S-803 drinking water treatment unit (DWTU) systems that utilize either (or both) of these media types are awarded maximum credit if said media is certified to S-802. Certification to this standard helps a company establish market preferability with their customers interested in purchasing more environmentally friendly treatment media for use in their DWTU systems.
