Drinking Water Contaminant Removal podcasts

  1. Treatment Alternatives For PFCs

    Over the past two years, no groundwater issue has perhaps received as much community focus and attention as polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances like PFOA and PFOS, often referred to as perflourinated compounds (PFCs). The U.S. EPA issued a health advisory, limiting the amount of these compounds to 70 parts/trillion which kicked off a nationwide evaluation of local water sources.

  2. PAA And UV Pair Up To Improve Disinfection Performance

    Peracetic acid (PAA)-based disinfection is growing in the US, both as a standalone disinfection method and in conjunction with other applications such as UV. Water Online Radio sat down with John Maziuk, Technical Development Manager with Solvay Chemicals to understand why.

  3. Can’t Keep Up? Partner With A Manufacturers’ Rep To Sustain Growth

    Rich Cavagnaro, President of AdEdge Water Technologies, and Tom Carmody, President of TC Tech LLC, share how their companies have partnered to successfully grow business in the advanced water treatment technology space.

  4. Clearing The Air With Activated Carbon

    Think you know activated carbon? The range of capabilities is so robust that operators of all types — drinking water, wastewater, municipal, or industrial — should come to fully understand its usage.

  5. UV-LED Technology: The Latest In Disinfection

    Dan Shaver, Business Development Manager at Aquionics, talks about the advantages of UV-LED technology for disinfection: low energy requirements, chemical-free and customizable design, and proficiency in solar or battery-powered applications.

  6. Coconut Shell Activated Carbon For Removing PFOA And PFOS

    Coconut shell activated carbon is typically used for filtration in cleaner waters. Its alternatives are coal-based or wood-based carbon. With the recently published EPA guidelines on perfluorinated compounds, Water Online Radio sat down with Neal Megonnell, Senior Vice President for Haycarb USA, to understand coconut shell activated carbon’s application in fighting PFOA and PFOS.

  7. Fostering Innovation From Within

    Every water treatment challenge is a little different. Many companies have a variety of technologies that can be applied to meet the demands of their water utility customers. One such company would be SUEZ. Water Talk recently sat down with Adriano Vieira, Director of R&D with the SUEZ IDEAS Center, to learn more about the unique approach the Company’s North American arm is taking to innovation.

  8. Combating Chromium The Smart Way

    Ever since Erin Brockovich discovered hexavalent chromium in California’s water supply in the early ‘90s, the contaminant has been on the minds of treatment plant operators everywhere.

  9. Understanding The Benefits Of Chlorination

    Fletcher Roche, Product Manager at Evoqua Water Technologies, explains why chlorine gas is a safe and cost-effective disinfection solution.

  10. The Value Of Wastewater: Closed Vessel UV Disinfection For Water Reuse

    Jon McClean, President of Engineered Treatment Systems (ETS), explains how UV disinfection of wastewater provides an effective and sustainable solution to growing water shortages.
