Wastewater Treatment Insights

  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Global Experts Offer 2019 Smart Water Insights
    2/13/2019

    What are some of the biggest global challenges, trends, and opportunities for the smart water sector in 2019? To answer these questions, the Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) interviewed four industry experts from Australia, North America, the UK, and India.

  8. Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 3: Operation And Monitoring
    2/5/2019

    Reverse osmosis (RO) systems offer power plant owners and operators a reliable and well-proven water treatment solution. However, designing and caring for an RO system requires a thorough understanding of a plant’s water supply and the technology’s capabilities. The final article of this three-part series will address RO system operation and maintenance best practices.

  9. On Site But Out Of Mind… Getting Extra Mileage Out Of Your Disinfection System
    1/31/2019

    Using on-site sodium hypochlorite generation technology to make oxidant for water and wastewater treatment is cost-effective, safe, and environmentally responsible. But, as with any piece of equipment, choosing the right one and caring for it properly impacts both life cycle costs and effectiveness. We talked with David McWalters, Field Service Manager-Americas, De Nora, to learn more.

  10. Is A Containerized Treatment System Right For You?
    1/24/2019

    As industrial facilities continually look for ways to reduce capital costs and decrease installation timelines associated with water treatment and other systems, the practice of containerizing equipment has become more prevalent. A containerized system offers many benefits of lower costs than comparable field erected buildings, faster timelines, and lower field installation requirements.
