Wastewater Treatment Insights

  1. Scientists Identify Opportunities To Better Understand Oilfield Wastewater
    4/24/2019

    Collaborative research is a critical element for identifying unforeseen risks associated with using the oil industry’s wastewater outside the oilfield. That’s the recommendation of a new peer-reviewed paper accepted this week in the Journal of Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM).

  2. Building For The Future On A Sustainable Foundation

    Denver Water is redeveloping its 35-acre operations complex with an eye on more than just delivering water.

  3. What To Watch As The Texas Legislature Takes Up Climate, Energy, Water, And More
    4/23/2019

    We’re past the midpoint of the Texas legislative session and the bill filing deadline is behind us. Because the legislature only meets for five months every other year, there’s a lot to accomplish in a short span.

  4. The Great Flood And Future Predictions
    3/27/2019

    Did you know that the earliest recorded flood is that of the Great Flood detailed in Christian Bibles, the Torah, and the Quran? I was, therefore, amused to hear from a channel partner about a flow monitoring job in the Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey, at the foot of Mount Ararat. Why? Because Mount Ararat is cited as the place where Noah’s Ark came to rest after the Great Flood (Genesis 8:4).

  5. Water Runs Through The Circular Economy
    3/26/2019

    Circular economy approaches can add value to a vast range of processes and product sectors, but water is the ‘blue thread’ that flows through it all, Nick Jeffries tells Paul O’Callaghan, chief executive, BlueTech Research.

  6. When Water Is Scarce, We Can't Afford To Neglect The Alternatives To Desalination
    3/25/2019

    This is the second of two articles looking at the increasing reliance of Australian cities on desalination plants to supply drinking water, with less emphasis on the alternatives of water recycling and demand management. So what is the best way forward to achieve urban water security?

  7. Wastewater Is An Asset — It Contains Nutrients, Energy And Precious Metals, And Scientists Are Learning How To Recover Them
    3/21/2019

    Most people think as little as possible about the wastewater that is produced daily from their showers, bathtubs, sinks, dishwashers and toilets. But with the right techniques, it can become a valuable resource.

  8. Grit Behavior In Splitting Structures: Model-To-Prototype Confidence
    3/1/2019

    Using computational fluid dynamics, engineers can all but guarantee their design solution for an all-too-common wastewater influent issue.

  9. How Can We Start The Journey To Smart Water Networks?
    2/20/2019

    In the developed world, potable water is delivered to people via a complex infrastructure consisting of water catchment, water treatment, water storage (reservoirs, towers), and water distribution (pipes). The first two elements are well understood; what is less understood is what happens to water as it journeys to the tap.
