    Cutting-Edge Solutions For Coking Wastewater Reuse To Meet The Standard Of Circulation Cooling Systems

    Coking wastewater generated from the processes of coking, coke gas purification, and recovery of coking products, is highly toxic and carcinogenic. The wastewater usually contains phenolic, aromatic, heterocyclic, and polycyclic organics, and some inorganics, such as cyanides, sulfides, ammonium, ammonia, and so on, which makes it hardly degradable.

    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.

Grease And Oil Aeration Tank: G.O.A.T.

Grease And Oil Aeration Tank: G.O.A.T.

Our Grease Oil Aeration Tanks were designed for the permanent removal and oxidation of F.O.G. (Fats, Oils, & Grease) and H2S in commercial and residential grease traps and grease interceptors. The G.O.A.T. is a compact stainless steel tank located in close proximity to a sink or dishwasher for the treatment of “Gray Water” effluent. The G.O.A.T. incorporates hybrid ozone with hydroxyl radicals (A.O.P) for the permanent removal of F.O.G. and H2S on contact. DO2E’s G.O.A.T. achieves the maximum oxygen transfer required for the total breakdown of all F.O.G. particulates. F.O.G. is converted on contact into suspended micro-fine inert particulates.

    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.

    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.
