Solving Industrial BOD
By ClearBlu Environmental
Real Ale Brewing Company (RABC) started as a small brewery working out of a commercial retail space. As RABC continued to be successful and grow, a mandate from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality stated that the city must require the brewery to treat their wastewater in order to prevent overwhelming the city’s treatment system.
Reducing The Footprint And Costs Of Effluent Reaeration
By BlueInGreen
Engineers for Leprino Foods were recently charged with designing and building a new wastewater treatment facility in support of additional expansion in Greeley, CO. With limited real estate at the planned facility and a desire to minimize capital and operating expenses, the engineers specified BlueInGreen’s SDOX technology to inject oxygen within the main process line just upstream of final sampling, measurement, and discharge.
Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage System Treats Produced Water
By Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies
Water treatment and steam generation are critical to in situ oil production. An oil sands producer in Northern Alberta, developing a new central process facility, required that the water treatment system use water efficiently to meet operational and sustainability objectives. The system supplied would need to maximize reuse of the treated produced water and minimize waste generated while providing quality water to the boilers for steaming.
Concrete Manufacturer Recycles Water Thanks To pH Control System
By Fortrans, Inc.
In order to meet its discharge permit limits, a ready-mix concrete manufacturing operation needed to neutralize its high pH process water. Staff installed a control system that automatically detects a rise in pH and treats the water with a modular, in-line carbon dioxide feed system. The operation can now recycle treated water for rinsing trucks, supply recycled water into the concrete batching operation, and safely discharge the water into the environment.
ORP Monitoring Reduced Need For Harsh Chemicals At Textile Manufacturer
By Myron L Company
When textile manufacturer Lafayette South America, based in Bogota, Colombia, couldn't find the little blue paper strips it had previously used to test for the presence of sodium hydrosulphite in its post-reduction dye bath, it went looking for an alternative.
Carbon Adsorption And Reactivation: Turning Obligation Into Opportunity
By Robert Deithorn, Product Market Director, Calgon Carbon Corporation
Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly and often scarce fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.
Brewery Reuses Water For Factory Washdown
By KLa Systems
Looking to reduce its water footprint, Shepherd Neame Brewery invested in a complete membrane bioreactor (MBR) wastewater recovery and reuse plant. Learn how the new plant's aeration system has helped to reduce the brewery's water-to-beer ratio to an industry-leading value of 3:1.
Eliminate Fecal Coliforms And E. Coli In Lagoons
By Jim Dartez, Reliant Water
Many horse racetracks throughout the world are designed to drain water from the track into a lagoon that is located in the infield of the track. Due to the track being predominantly used for horse racing, there is a high amount of fecal coliform bacteria, especially of the Escherichia coli species, in the water that drains from the track. During the racing season, fecal coliform and E. coli counts increase dramatically and the subsequent drainage of these lagoons can become a problem for the receiving waters.
