The 2013 year was the driest in recorded history with many areas of the San Joaquin Valley reporting groundwater levels more than 100 feet below previous historical lows.
Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irrigation resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.
High Recovery Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment For Industrial, Agricultural, And Municipal Applications
Industry accounts for nearly 60 percent of fresh water withdrawals in the developed world and agriculture consumes 70 percent of fresh water supplies globally, according to UNESCO.
Pulp And Paper Manufacturer Significantly Increases Production While Complying With Discharge Limitations
A U.S.-based pulp and paper manufacturer required high purity process and boiler feed water. It was using water from a local well and treating it with a 150 gpm conventional RO system operating at 75% recovery, but this was creating 50 gpm of wastewater – over 26 million gallons per year.
Closed Circuit Desalination Technology Provides Steel Manufacturer ROI In Less Than 60 Days
This leading rod and wire mill requires water for cooling steel and tools in its manufacturing process. Water used for cooling becomes contaminated with metals and lubricants and was therefore being disposed of as waste.
Eliminate CIP And Cut Wastewater Disposal In Half With CCD
A high water recovery rate is essential for this well-known soy protein manufacturer.
Reliable Production Of High Quality Permeate For Irrigation
Following one of the driest periods on record in California, farmers in the San Joaquin Valley faced restricted water allocations.
CCD Technology Succeeds With Well Water Purification
The Kittansett Golf Club in Marion, Massachusetts is rated one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses by Golf Digest Magazine.
Produce Potable And Pharmaceutical Grade Water From Problematic Brackish Water
A pharmaceutical manufacturing plant located in Sedom, Israel faced challenging environmental conditions including low humidity, temperatures exceeding 105 degrees Fahrenheit and limited water supplies.
Reducing Effluent Waste While Using Less Energy With CCD
A pesticide manufacturing plant in Gujarat, India produces up to 6,000 metric tons per year of various pesticides for agricultural use.
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.
