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.
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.

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.
Theoretical Operation Of High-Efficiency Ultraviolet Water Treatment Chamber
The NeoTech Aqua ReFleX™ water purification chambers are the most efficient and compact units available today. They require an order of magnitude less energy and less than 25% of the system volume to achieve the same or better purification result as competing chambers. This is the first in a series of three white papers explaining the benefits of these systems. By J. R. Cooper, Ph.D, NeoTech Aqua Solutions, Inc.
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. By Jenny Zhang ,Scientist, Dow Water & Process Solution, Dow Chemical (China) Investment Ltd. and Juno Chen, Business Communications Manager, Dow Chemical (China) Investment Ltd.
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. By Jim Lauria, Senior Vice Director-Water Treatment, Bilfinger Water Technologies

Available water supply can be compromised by more than just drought— a challenge food and beverage manufacturers know well.
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.
Looking To Singapore For Water Scarcity Solutions
As the U.S. struggles with water scarcity in California, Nevada, Texas, and other western communities, finding a solution that will work for every state and every industry seems nearly impossible.
Smarter Source Water: Could New Thinking Unite Industry And Environmentalists?
AMD can be a valuable resource for the oil and gas industry and result in cleaning up thousands of streams and rivers in the nation.
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 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.
