Water and Wastewater Solutions For Industry

  1. Addressing Environmental Regulations With UVC LEDs

    Global environmental concerns over water and air pollution are leading to new regulations that require real-time monitoring.

  2. Incubating Innovation: Solutions For A Parched Earth

    Massive droughts and water demands from a world population projected to grow to nine billion by 2050, translate to food insecurity and lack of water for agriculture.

  3. Straight Talk On Radiation

    From time-to-time I write on topics that are related to water and wastewater as a "backgrounder" so that those involved in the field can gain a wider perspective and have available to them a cogent explanation minus jargon on various topics. By Dr. J.H. Wakefield

  4. Hydro Schemes Have An Impact In Scotland

    At the end of 2011, the total hydroelectric installed capacity in the United Kingdom accounted for approximately 1.67 Gigawatts (GW) of installed electrical generating capacity, being 1.9% of the current total UK generating capacity, and 14% of the UK's renewable energy generating capacity.

  5. FEDI Solution For Sohar Refinery Project

    Orpic (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) required a thermal seawater desalination solution as part of its Sohar refinery improvement project to ensure an uninterrupted supply of fresh feed water to for its boilers.

  6. CleanFlo™ Monoscreen® Case Study

    When the polar bears at the Brookfield Zoo were introduced to their new habitats at the Great Bear Wilderness, they had no idea how much more fulfilling their life would become.

  7. Minimal Liquid Discharge: Adopting A 'Less Is More' Mindset

    If zero liquid discharge (ZLD) is too costly, water reuse and sustainability can still be prioritized and realized through minimal liquid discharge (MLD).

  8. DenseSludge Treatment Plant Enables Recreational Fishing

    The water quality in Bennett Branch of Sinnemahoning Creek was impacted by Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) to the point that the stream could no longer support aquatic life.

  9. Level Switch Detects Oil And Nitrogen Interface To Support Effective PIG System Operation

    A major oil producer in Alaska’s North Slope region operates miles of transit pipeline as part of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) within the U.S. National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska.

  10. How A Wisconsin Paper Mill Increased Capacity And Improved Water Quality

    In late 2012, production capacity issues arose with several of the clay tile filters at the NewPage Biron paper mill in Wisconsin. Process engineers decided to retrofit two of their four existing dual cell filters with an underdrain system and media retainer. This case study details the system and explains how it doubled capacity for the two filters and improved effluent water quality, leading to fewer plant shutdowns due to seal failures within the mill.
