WASTEWATER APPLICATION NOTES

  • Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries
    Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries

    A single operational oil and gas refinery produces millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater a year, leading to environmental pollution concerns. Ion exchange resins are a metal- and ion-removal solution to help clean this wastewater for plant reuse or safe disposal. This application guide explains how resins can be used to demineralize refinery water in process, boiler, and cooling water applications.

    Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®

    In the summer of 2012, BlueInGreen partnered with a facility in Arkansas to study disinfection of wastewater and removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC) by utilizing dissolved ozone. The plant has a firm capacity of 12 MGD and includes primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification, and sand filtration prior to the existing UV system.

  • Application Note: Building A Baseline In Florida The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) knows that establishing dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrient criteria for the state’s water bodies is a challenge – both scientifically and politically
  • Application Note: Employing Best Water Quality Monitoring Practices To Reduce Runoff During Construction Under proposed EPA stormwater runoff guidelines, construction site operators will be required to actively monitor or sample stormwater discharges daily. The enhanced effluent rules take effect in August 2011 for construction sites that disturb 20 or more acres and February 2014 for sites that disturb 10 or more acres, and they may stipulate a strict numerical limit of less than 280 NTU for average turbidity (sediment in water) on any day.

  • Underground Treatment Of Airport Deicing Fluid
    Underground Treatment Of Airport Deicing Fluid While keeping air flight safe, airports and airlines are also obliged to clean up after themselves and protect nearby streams and water bodies. And due to increasing chemical usage and looming regulations, some airports will need to invest in significant infrastructure upgrades to capture and treat stormwater contaminated with deicing fluid. By Scott Wallace, P.E., President, Naturally Wallace Consulting and Mark Liner, PE, Senior Engineer, Naturally Wallace Consulting
  • Application Note: Simultaneous Determination Of Total Bound Nitrogen (TNb) And Total Organic Carbon (TOC) In Aqueous Samples Total bound nitrogen (TNb) consists of dissolved ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, amines, and other organic nitrogen-containing compounds. TNb measurements represent an alternative to Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) analysis for rapid screening of industrial wastewater, drinking water,agricultural run-off, and surface waters.

  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins
    Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.
