    300,000 square feet. That was the size of the tradeshow floor at WEFTEC, the world's largest annual water quality exhibition. I didn't see every technology showcased last month in New Orleans (over a thousand exhibitors were on hand), but here’s a “best of” list from the many that I came across — a snapshot of various technologies that stood out from the masses, exceptional for their level of innovation and potential for industry impact.

  3. Electrocoagulation Provides Economical Solution To Oil And Gas Waste Problem
    10/4/2016

    A new generation of electrocoagulation-based water treatment has successfully treated wastewater and effluent from a remote onshore natural gas exploration and production project with over three years of continuous operation. To compound the challenges of treating this wastewater and effluent, the unit was required to operate in an extremely environmentally sensitive environment — a pristine tropical rainforest.
