In 2014, Trinity Hughes Construction completed a project for Alcoa(now Howmet). The new construction contains a Natural Engineered Wastewater Treatment system (NEWT). The NEWT is the first of its kind in Texas, and ProChem, Inc. (the previous wastewater treatment system) is integrated with NEWT. The NEWT system collects sanitary water from the facility, purifies it using vegetation, and then feeds it to ProChem's HPRO water reuse system and is also used for recirculation into the manufacturing process. With these systems in place, Alcoa's overall water consumption is reduced by 68%.
