  1. Industrial Wastewater Treatment Options For Inorganic Contaminants
    7/10/2017

    With a plethora of contaminants deriving from a multitude of sources and a variety of treatment solutions to choose from, the topic of industrial wastewater can get complex fast. This overview provides clarity.

  2. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Treatment Costs
    10/14/2016

    This article is the seventh in a series on industrial water treatment focusing on inorganic contaminants; this one will discuss capital, operating, and lifecycle costs.

  3. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Emerging Technologies
    9/2/2016

    This article is the sixth in a series on industrial water treatment focusing on inorganic contaminants; this one will discuss several emerging treatment technologies. 

  4. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Biological Treatment Processes
    8/9/2016

    This article is the fifth in a series on industrial water treatment focusing on inorganic contaminants. While regulatory limits are being established, the process of identifying a cost-effective treatment process should be undertaken. Potential water treatment processes for inorganic contaminants can be grouped into three categories: physical, chemical, and biological. This article will describe the biological treatment technologies that may be considered.

  5. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Chemical Treatment Processes
    6/1/2016

    Potential water treatment processes for inorganic contaminants can be grouped into three categories: physical, chemical, and biological. This article will describe five chemical treatment technologies that may be considered.

  6. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Physical Treatment Processes
    5/3/2016

    This article is the third in a series on industrial water treatment focusing on inorganic contaminants. 

  7. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Selecting A Treatment Process
    4/6/2016

    This article is the second in a series on industrial water treatment focusing on inorganic contaminants.

  8. Industrial Water Treatment For Inorganic Contaminants: Regulatory Drivers
    3/30/2016

    The goal of this article is to summarize the process of how industrial discharge limits are established. These discharge limits (effluent limits) allow the environmental professional to then specify treatment goals and process design criteria.

  9. Selenium Removal Technologies: A Review
    1/15/2016

    Selenium, a contaminant of concern in industries such as mining, oil refining, and power generation, is removed from wastewater principally through either biological or chemical/physical processes. This article will describe those technologies, several technology providers, and other sources of information.

  10. Arsenic Removal Technologies: A Review
    3/11/2015

    Arsenic is a common element in the earth’s crust, natural groundwater, and even the human body.  It is an odorless and tasteless semi-metal (metalloid) that is naturally present in aquifers throughout the U.S. and the world.
