Despite the best efforts of environmental advocates and municipalities around the country, the nation’s source water bodies still suffer from excessive contamination due to littering.
A West Coast wastewater management facility provides design, management, and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system for an entire county, including the conveyance system and treatment system. The wastewater treatment plant has been established for over 50 years and has the capacity to treat 41 million gallons of sanitary sewage per day (mgd).value chain. Siemens suggested that the customer try the Siemens HydroRanger 200 controller. The HydroRanger 200 uses proven, continuous, ultrasonic echo ranging technology to monitor water and wastewater of any consistency up to 15 m (50 ft) in depth.
An automotive parts manufacturer producing millions of parts per year was seeking to remove cutting fluid/oil and suspended solids from water used in its parts-washing process to enable water recycling and reuse in the parts washer. Successful lab testing and trials enabled the system integrator to win the project and install full-scale systems utilizing PPG’s UF membrane element. Read the full case study to learn more.
Recycling is generally considered a positive thing, except when the sidestream discharge from the dewatering of anaerobic digested sludge can recycle up to 40 percent of the total nitrogen or ammonia load in the original flow back to the head of the wastewater treatment stream. Deammonification technology using anaerobic ammonium oxidation/anammox bacteria offers a cost-effective way to break that vicious cycle and meet regulatory discharge limits.
The city of Orange in Orange County, Texas, is located about 100 miles east of Houston, Texas, and approximately 30 miles due north of the Gulf of Mexico. It is the state’s easternmost city and home to the Orange Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP). Located along the Sabine River, this municipal wastewater treatment plant with a peak capacity of 24 MGD serves 18,000 residents and comprises of the following unit processes: bar screens, grit removal, primary treatment, trickling filter followed by sedimentation and finally, UV disinfection. The Sabine River is 510 miles long and in its lower course, empties into Sabine Lake, which is an estuary of the Gulf of Mexico.
Environmental regulations and water scarcity have created a need for economical water treatments that increase reuse. This paper will review the new PPG membrane that has a unique composite single-layer microstructure that provides high-flux, excellent separation capabilities and exceptional durability to improve the filtration and recovery of industrial wastewater.
Water is essential to numerous industries such as chemical manufacturing, automotive production, oil and gas refinery and power generation, yet the increasing scarcity of this precious resource makes its recovery from these activities more critical than ever.

The UV Advanced Oxidation Process (UV AOP) is when ultraviolet light, alone or in combination with an oxidant, destroys chemical contaminants in water. If you have a problem contaminant that cannot easily be removed with processes like microfiltration, granular activated carbon or reverse osmosis, then UV AOP might just be the ideal solution.
