Who We Are
In an effort to combat growing concerns over the world’s fresh water supply, PCWT was formed to take part in the emerging green trend of global water investing. PCWT primarily targets businesses within the Agriculture and Industrial sectors, whose combined use of the world’s fresh water supply is roughly 92% annually.
What We Do
PCWT has designed a platform to help major consumers of fresh water not only reduce their use but has enabled them to recycle and reuse millions of gallons every day. By keeping major consumers of water compliant with environmental regulations, we are not only able to save our clientele millions of dollars a year, but we are able to save the world millions of gallons of water as well.
How We Do It
PCWT creates customized programs for clients who need assistance in reducing water consumption, energy usage, reducing capital equipment turnover, implementing safety & recovery programs, and assists in any other specialized environmental treatment programs needed.
