Disinfection Performance Testing Of High-Efficiency Ultraviolet Water Treatment Chamber

This is the second in a series of three white papers describing the design and performance of the NeoTech Aqua ReFlex™ treatment chamber. The first describes in detail the theoretical basis for the very high efficiency demonstrated by the chamber. The third paper describes how this chamber design leads to some highly desirable operational advantages beyond just energy ad cost reduction. By J. R. Cooper, Ph. D. and Gwynne Cavender, NeoTech Aqua Solutions, Inc.

    In California, Come Rain Or Shine, Upfront Efficiency Is Always In Style

    Caught between a withering drought and floods from winter storms, California faces the worst of both worlds—dealing with scarcity as well as stormwater.  America, and much of the world, is watching to see how this trendsetting state handles those challenges.  After generations of setting America’s style, from cowboys to Beatniks to Beach Boys to Silicon Valley billionaires, California can set perhaps its most important trend yet—it can lead the way to a more water-efficient America.  It has to.  The good news is that it can.

    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.

    Rinse, Repeat: The Rise Of Water Reuse

    I may not be “old school” in the water/wastewater industry, but I have been around long enough to see a number of ideas graduate from sideshow to center stage. In wastewater, the topic in the spotlight at the moment is water reuse — and its role won’t soon diminish. Depending on your part of the world, it will sooner or later be the norm — but the smart ones are planning ahead.

LATEST INSIGHTS ON WATER REUSE

  • Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?
    Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?

    There are few topics more controversial these days than hydraulic fracturing ("fracking"). While the debate rages on as to whether fracking poses a risk to water quality, a new desalination technique addresses two other environmental concerns: water scarcity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC), the breakthrough technology uses excess carbon dioxide created in the fracking process to desalinate the process water, making it available for water reuse. It also generates chemicals — hydrochloric acid and carbonate salts — that are valuable for many industrial applications.

    The Great Graywater Debate

    Widespread nonpotable reuse of graywater could potentially lead to a significant reduction in water demand, and over 8 million people across the U.S. are already using graywater for landscape irrigation. Yet most of the graywater reuse currently taking place is illegal. 

  • Stormwater: A Valuable Resource For Power Plants?
    Stormwater: A Valuable Resource For Power Plants?

    Stormwater is often thought of as a burden. Too much of it can overwhelm wastewater treatment facilities, flood communities, and lead to the pollution of lakes and rivers. There is debate on who’s in charge of it and how it should be managed. Several communities have invested millions, and some even billions, trying to control stormwater. Even chicken farmers have issues with stormwater.

  • New Indirect Potable Reuse Regulations — What To Expect

Closed Circuit Desalination Simplifies Reverse Osmosis To Drive Down Energy Costs

Closed Circuit Desalination Simplifies Reverse Osmosis To Drive Down Energy Costs

As industry, agriculture and residential consumers compete for available freshwater sources, desalination continues to evolve as a viable process for increasing the available water pool. Industrial water is perhaps most critical as it accounts for as much as sixty percent of the freshwater being withdrawn in the United States today. Rising wastewater disposal costs, sustainability initiatives, and higher water efficiency standards are all fueling interest from industry in onsite brackish water reuse. However, municipal interest in water-stressed areas of the world is also on the rise.
