  1. The Power Of Reclaimed Water

    The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.

  2. The Murky Future Of Global Water Quality

    Population growth, economic development, and climate change are placing increasing pressure on our planet’s water resources. Many studies, including one conducted by IFPRI and Veolia in 2011, depict a future world with elevated tensions due to growing demand for a limited supply of water.

  3. NEOSEP® Membrane Bioreactor System Simplifies 'Fundamental Necessities' Of MBR

    The NEOSEP® MBR system features Kruger’s uniquely designed K-120C and K-240C flat sheet membrane modules.  The modules offer several innovative design features that enhance ease of installation, operation and maintenance.  This includes an integrated central lifting eye, offering an incredibly well balanced module that makes installation and retrieval a simple and stress-free process.

  4. Replacement Of Synthetic Polymer By Bio-Based Flocculant In Drinking Water Treatment Train: Impact On Water Quality And Microbiological Colonization

    The use of anionic potato starch in clarification was assessed by comparison with polyacrylamide flocculant in order to evaluate its effect on the performances of Actiflo® Turbo combined with Sand Filtration and Actiflo® Turbo combined with Ultrafiltration in terms of water quality and kinetics of biofilm formation.

  5. Zero Liquid Waste: A Desalination Solution For Chloride, Sulfate Limits

    Mining operations and other energy producers face a multitude of clean-water regulations that can seriously impact their businesses. Strict standards governing discharge into waterways can increase costs and inhibit production. Veolia Water Technologies is addressing these issues through advanced treatment processes that allow companies to generate clean water for reuse or environmental discharge with no substantial liquid waste. Called the Zero Liquid Waste (ZLW) approach, the industrial water desalination technology benefits the mining industry, which must contend with stringent new regulatory requirements that limit the discharge of chlorides and sulfates into streams, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water.

  6. Shale Gas Water Treatment Strategies

    The market-changing growth of shale gas production in recent years has resulted in the emergence of pressing environmental and water management challenges.

  7. Trace Organic Compounds: What Goes In Must Come Out

    Chemically enhanced high rate settling (CEHRS) shows promise in removing harmful compounds such as pharmaceuticals and consumer products from wastewater. By Daniel M. Austria

  8. Stormwater Retention Basin Optimization Through Multi-Stage Flow Control

    Taking advantage of government regulations on stormwater effluent rates is difficult to accomplish efficiently when there are different allowable release rates for discrete storm intensities. Managing the flow for a range of events with one control device is not always possible or efficient, yet several municipalities will require flow regulation for 5-, 10-, 25- and 100-year storm events. How can one system be able to properly manage flows from storm events with a 5-year frequency and also be able to manage the 100-year storm flow?

  9. Fix-A-Flood (Before It Happens): Optimized Overflow Devices Increase Retention Capacity

    Overflow events occur during wet weather when the collection system reaches its maximum storage capacity. By Giangranco Maragno, P. Eng. And Martin Couture, P. Eng., Veolia Water Technologies Canada

  10. White Paper: Finding The Blue Path For A Sustainable Economy

    The efficiency of water management and our ability to sustain population and economic growth are inextricably linked. By Veolia Water Technologies
