Water and wastewater professionals will gather at Bally's in Las Vegas, NV, from March 10-14 to take part in this joint conference and exposition that showcases how membrane technology can enhance water reliability and water quality while revealing new directions in water treatment technologies and wastewater membrane bioreactor applications. The conference includes 115 technical papers, more than 60 poster presentations, five pre-conference workshops, two facility tours, a full exhibit hall featuring innovative membrane products and services, as well as exhibit hall networking sessions.

AMTA, along with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) have teamed up to offer an alternative, presenting their third “Membrane Technology Conference & Exposition,” held March 10-14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mining operations and other energy producers face a multitude of clean-water regulations that can seriously impact their businesses. Strict standards governing discharge into waterways can increase costs and inhibit production. Veolia Water Technologies is addressing these issues through advanced treatment processes that allow companies to generate clean water for reuse or environmental discharge with no substantial liquid waste. Called the Zero Liquid Waste (ZLW) approach, the industrial water desalination technology benefits the mining industry, which must contend with stringent new regulatory requirements that limit the discharge of chlorides and sulfates into streams, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water.
Membranes are a game-changing technology – they’ve propelled water treatment to unprecedented heights. By Amiad Water Systems
Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are nothing new to membrane filtration units. The most typical use of an external VFD on pressure pumps for reverse osmosis (RO) or ultra-filtration (UF) systems is to account for variability in flow.
Membrane fouling can have a significant impact on the performance of reverse osmosis (RO) systems, as well as on the cost of operating the systems (downtime, membrane cleaning, membrane replacement, etc.). The Silt Density Index (SDI) test has become the standard measurement for determining the fouling potential of RO make-up water. However, SDI results only offer “snapshots” of the quality of the makeup water at any given time. To truly understand the water that is being treated, and to optimize the pre-RO filtration system performance, water plant operators should consider utilizing online particle detection analyzers.

Membran-Filtrations-Technik (MFT), a leading developer of membrane technologies, will introduce CD9 InLine, the latest advancement in its circular disc (CD) module and plate and frame technology, at IFAT, Stand A1.552.
Raw water characteristics dictate the level of pretreatment required upstream of a membrane. By removing 98-100% of suspended particles above the degree of filtration (screen size), Forsta UF prefiltration will prolong membrane life in a fully automated system – i.e., there is no interruption to system flow during the short backwash cycle.
H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Company”) is proud to announce that it has recently secured, following a full-scale demonstration, a leasing contract of its Clearlogx proprietary technology with one of the world’s most famous PGA golf courses: Pebble Beach – Carmel Area Wastewater District, California. This contract, for a two-year period, will control and optimize the coagulant dosing of a 2 MGD (7,570 m3/day) membrane filtration plant.
Anaergia Inc. announced recently that it is part of a team led by W.S. Nicholls Construction Inc. and including the Ontario Clean Water Agency (“OCWA”) and exp Services Inc. (“exp”) that was selected by the City of Toronto, Ontario, to design, build, and operate the upgraded and expanded Dufferin Organics Processing Facility (“DOPF”).
