WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  1. What To Know About Water Quality Analysis For Reverse Osmosis
    5/23/2018

    Reverse osmosis (RO) has become a widely utilized treatment process for diverse applications such as medical and laboratory research, desalination, and treatment of industrial wastewater and municipal water/wastewater. Because of its widespread use and technically advanced nature, a variety of quality parameters should be monitored by those treatment operators who utilize it.

    Find out the importance of total cost of ownership in wastewater treatment applications and how Atlas Copco supports this approach.

  3. Forests And Wetlands Are Water Infrastructure. New Green Bond Helps Finance Their Protection
    5/22/2018

    East Africa’s Kariba Dam is almost empty due to diminishing rains. In Brazil, Sao Paulo’s reservoirs were reduced to dried mud three years ago, and experts say the city is heading toward another dry spell. Catastrophic floods recently wreaked havoc in southern England, Texas, and Bangkok.

  4. What To Know About Water Quality Analysis For Chlorine Disinfection
    5/22/2018

    The use of chlorine to treat and disinfect drinking water and wastewater has been in practice for decades, with the earliest recorded attempt dating all the way back to 1893. Since then, it has come a long way.

  5. How To Apply And Maintain A Photometric/Colorimetric Analyzer

    Water resource recovery (WRR) plants must monitor ammonium and orthophosphate. Permitted levels for these nutrients in effluent discharge are becoming increasingly tight because state environmental agencies and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are requiring dischargers to reduce the amount of nutrients in their effluent.

  6. What To Know About Water Quality Analysis For Biological Nutrient Removal
    5/21/2018

    Nitrogen and phosphorus are two wastewater constituents that, together, pose one of the most high-profile threats for consumers and the environment. An abundance of these elements is what ultimately leads to the formation of toxic algae in surface waters, an environmental issue that regularly gains mainstream headlines and, in some cases, poses an acute health risk to consumers.

  7. Soaking In Another Victory
    5/17/2018

    It’s a four-peat.

    For the fourth consecutive year, the University of Maryland, College Park has won high honors in EPA’s Campus RainWorks Challenge, a national collegiate competition to design the best ideas for capturing stormwater on campus before it can harm waterways.

  8. Top 10 Considerations For Designing And Installing Your Stormwater System
    5/15/2018

    Designing an underground stormwater storage system is a unique step in the overall construction process for each site. The size of the inlets and the conveyance pipes are determined by flow rate, elevation, and slope. This information is entered and calculated by stormwater management software to determine the drainage calculation. But many of the measures build upon one another or vary based on different criteria, so it can be a pretty complex process. That’s why we’re going to take a look at the top 10 factors that go into designing and installing one of these systems.

  9. Point Level vs. Continuous Level Measuring Technologies
    5/14/2018

    While point level measuring approaches are regarded as simple and user-friendly, they lack the capabilities of more sophisticated continuous measuring instruments.

  10. How Sludge-To-Energy Technology Is Boosting Water Resilience And Slashing Emissions For Cities
    5/14/2018

    Growing cities are generating higher volumes of wastewater and putting a strain on clean water supplies, calling for solutions that extract value from “waste” and ensure the sustainability of resources — with the added bonus, or imperative, of protecting the environment.
