Many organizations use the marketing labeling of "Green" to increase profit margins and revenue.  This paper researches technology to aid in defining the term "Green" as it applies to cooling water systems. This paper will examine current Green definitions from around the world, EPA standards, and materials/controls available to help operators understand the term "Green" as definable and measurable, with attainable standards.  This paper will review current installations of Green chemistry and technology to provide a case study and basis for Green technology, its application, and financial/operational savings in the variations required to address small, medium and large markets.
