    Water scarcity is requiring large industrial plants to investigate conservation options, including reuse of municipal wastewater effluent, in order to grow sustainably while meeting increased demands for fresh water make-up.

  5. Potato Chips In Peru? Headworks Solves A Multinational Food & Beverage Company's Space And Effluent Quality Challenges
    6/5/2017

    Although industry only accounts for 20% of water consumption globally (vs. 70% for agriculture and 10% for domestic consumption), most multinational industrial companies are now focused on ensuring they provide effective environmental management wherever they are in the world.  

  6. Has The Ideal Biocarrier Finally Been Developed?
    6/1/2017

    In order to improve the efficiency of biofilm technologies, a high-performance biocarrier has been developed, based on requests for ideal carrier characteristics.

  7. High Efficiency Media Filtration And Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Is Becoming A Crucial Component For Today's Cooling Tower Needs
    4/4/2017

    An increasing number of technology industries are turning to cooling towers to remove excess heat from buildings or processes. Server farms or server clusters are typically located between the system switches and routers, the removal of heat from these facilities is critical to their optimal performance.

  8. Creating Reusable Water From Municipal Sewage
    4/4/2017

    Al Shamal is the capital city of the municipality of Madinat ash Shamal in Qatar. With the majority of the town's population not yet connected to a sewer network, there was an immediate need to provide a wastewater treatment plant to treat wastewater generated from the towns' population and small industries. Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar and its end user, decided to install a tanker discharge facility with a compact sewage treatment plant to produce effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.

  9. Florida County Aims for Full Usage Of Reclaimed Water
    3/28/2017

    In 2016 Hillsborough County Public Utilities, a forward thinking organization, initiated the first direct potable reuse pilot project in Florida. In its efforts to utilize 100 percent of its reclaimed water, the progressive utility created a successful program to effectively suspend surface water discharges. The pilot project validated direct potable reuse, which is now a key initiative for many central Florida utilities due to the implementation of the Central Florida Water Initiative requiring the additional utilization of reuse water resources.

  10. UV Disinfection Upgrade For Water Reuse - EWA Beach, Hawaii (Case Study)
    3/15/2017

    The Honouliuli Water Recycling Facility (WRF) includes filtration and UV disinfection to treat to Class R-1 reuse standards for various uses, including irrigation. In order to maintain high-level reuse, simplify maintenance, and reduce operation costs, the Honolulu Board of Water Supply decided to replace its 15-year-old TrojanUV4000™ with a TrojanUVSigna™.  With the high cost of power in Hawaii, this system upgrade will provide significant power savings (estimated at 75%) and will enable equipment payback in less than 2.5 years.
