Zero-D System Treats Truck and Equipment Wash Down Wastewater for Reuse


Natural Systems, a 15 year old company based in Santa Barbara, CA, is launching a proven wastewater treatment system called Zero-D for truck, train, vehicle and heavy equipment washing facilities that completely eliminates the need for disposal and associated fees and allows reuse of the waste water within the facility.

CEO James Smallwood says, “Instead of communities washing their cars in the driveway or street, we’re building Zero-D as a “dedicated” community car washing facility”. IN addition, these systems can be installed in commercial truck, train, or vehicle washing facilities.

The Zero-D wastewater treatment and recycling system uses a proven and highly effective non-chemical electro-coagulation method eliminates heavy metals, oil and grease, TSS, COD, BOD, TDS, pesticides, herbicides, nitrates, e.coli, and other contaminants.

The treatment process of the system is a specially designed Electrocoagulation unit, a module that uses electricity to “shock” the waste water, breaking molecular bonds that hold contaminants within the water molecule, allowing easy filtration and producing clean water for reuse.

“A further benefit for reducing operating costs is that the electro-separation process removes the calcium and minerals and acts as a water softener. Therefore, facilities using this system can also eliminate the need for water softeners; another big savings for them.”

The operation of the Zero-D system uses only electricity which can cost as little as $0.30 cents per 1,000 gallons. Companies like, BART in San Francisco and Ahern rental in Long Beach have been using this method for years now to treat and reuse their train and truck wash down wastewater, saving them thousands of dollars per year.

The other companies who have installed similar systems over the past 10 years include Sear’s Distribution Center, Brashear’s Auto Auction, and Michigan CAT. Zero-D can also be used at bus washing facilities, airports, trash collection companies, postal delivery companies, farming operations and golf courses; anywhere you want to treat and reuse water.

Smallwood concludes, “Zero-D is a one-of-a-kind simple, reliable, and effective system which not only increases net income for truck and equipment washing facilities, but will help companies reduce their overall water use.
