    Water-Energy Nexus Data Drives Operational Efficiency

    When a water manager wants to optimize energy use as part of their operational plan, it helps to have the right software systems in place. Once you do, the big question is how to utilize it to get the most out of the relationship between power and water.

  • Behind The Screen: When Protecting MBRs, There’s More To Pre-Screening Technology Than Just Screens
    Behind The Screen: When Protecting MBRs, There’s More To Pre-Screening Technology Than Just Screens

    There’s no doubt that effective pretreatment enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant — removing hair, fibers, and inorganic solids from influent at the very start creates benefits that resonate throughout the entire process.  The heart of pretreatment is a good screen — but good screening technology goes well beyond the screen itself to include seals, cleaning mechanisms, and logic controls as well.

  • FGD Purge Treatment In Coal-Fired Power Generation
    FGD Purge Treatment In Coal-Fired Power Generation

    Stricter environmental policies and regulations worldwide are changing how industry approaches all aspects of business. Likewise, EU (European Union) environmental policies governing air, soil, and water quality have become progressively stringent.

    These policy changes affect the power industry’s balance of meeting growing European energy demands with compliance to environmental standards. In order to conform with EU standards specific for flue gas, a coalfired generation plant (at the time owned by Endesa, Italia, S.p.A.) in Monfalcone, Italy, undertook the measure of installing a state-of-the-art FGD (flue gas desulfurization) system at their facility. This system would remove SO2 (sulfur dioxide) from the emissions for the 336 MW coal-fired power station.

  • Monitoring ORP To Help Determine Arsenic In Private Wells
    Monitoring ORP To Help Determine Arsenic In Private Wells

    Arsenic is one of the most common elements in the earth’s crust and is commonly found in many locations at varying concentrations. The Midwestern United States has locations that are heavily laden with arsenic because of certain geological settings and conditions. This naturally-occurring arsenic can leach into groundwater potentially causing elevated levels of arsenic in drinking water supplies. The primary pathway that exposes arsenic to humans is through drinking water.

  • Case Study: NDMA Treatment For Water Reuse
    Case Study: NDMA Treatment For Water Reuse

    Groundwater pumping in the Los Alamitos, California area over the last century has caused groundwater levels to drop, allowing seawater to intrude into the local groundwater aquifer. To prevent additional infiltration by seawater, a coastline barrier of wells injecting fresh water has been in place since 1965. Until recently, imported potable drinking water was injected into the aquifer. However, the Alamitos Barrier now utilizes highly-treated recycled water for this application, and our TrojanUVPhox™ is part of the process.
