  • Novel Oxidant Lowers Natural Organic Matter Without Creating Disinfection Byproducts
    Novel Oxidant Lowers Natural Organic Matter Without Creating Disinfection Byproducts

    With twice the oxidation potential as that of chlorine, this mineral oxychloride solution can easily break down carbon bonds and simultaneously lowers organic carbon, meets microbial reduction goals, and complies with the regulatory limits on disinfection byproducts. Disinfection by chlorine can be problematic, as chlorine can react with naturally occurring organic compounds resulting in byproducts that have never existed in nature.

  • Hypochlorite Bleaches Market Continues To Thrive On The Expanding Water Treatment Sector
    Hypochlorite Bleaches Market Continues To Thrive On The Expanding Water Treatment Sector

    An inherent vertical of the global specialty chemicals space, hypochlorite bleaches market has been observing remarkable popularity of late. With rising incidences of infectious illnesses on a global scale, the demand for disinfectants, bleaching, and sanitization products is likely to accelerate. Hypochlorite bleaches are popular disinfection products with the ability to terminate a vast array of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, viruses, and fungi, provided they are used with adequate precautionary measures and adhere to specific usage guidelines.

    FILTRASORB 400 Provides PFAS Solution For Air Force Base In Interior Alaska

    When Eielson Air Force Base, located in the interior of Alaska, found high levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in their drinking water, they needed a solution that was effective, cost-efficient, and operable in extreme temperatures. Calgon Carbon’s Model 10 adsorption system, filled with FILTRASORB 400 granular activated carbon (GAC), was determined to be the best option.

  • Water Treatment Filter Monitoring
    Water Treatment Filter Monitoring

    A municipal water utility follows a straightforward method for providing clean water to its residents: It pulls water out of a nearby river, filters out the impurities, and then funnels the water into a reservoir to be ready when residents turn on their taps. The water provider needed to improve sand filter consistency and boost performance of its overall fleet of filters in its water treatment plant. To do this, it needed to identify and monitor for poor filter performance while prioritizing filter maintenance.

    Calgon Carbon Initiates Emergency Response To PFAS Detection

    Blades, Delaware, a small town in Sussex County, provides drinking water to more than 1,300 residential and business locations throughout the community. In 1981, the citizens of Blades voted to improve their water and sewage facilities by establishing a central water supply and tying all properties into the nearby Seaford Sewer System. By February of 1982, the project was complete and since then the town has had a clean and safe municipal water supply.

    WRF Hosts Capitol Hill, State-Of-The-Science Briefing On Harmful Algal Blooms

    To make informed decisions about how to limit exposure to cyanotoxins, utilities need information to select and implement a comprehensive and technically sound management approach. The Water Research Foundation (WRF) has been actively involved in developing effective innovative solutions to help utilities address this challenge and protect public health.

  • Analyzing Water Quality Parameters When Choosing AOP Systems For Water Treatment
    Analyzing Water Quality Parameters When Choosing AOP Systems For Water Treatment

    In water and wastewater treatment, chemistry is king. Treatment options are evaluated depending on the quality of water to be treated and the treatment application. Treatment systems including AOP systems, are designed to specifically target certain contaminants and remove or reduce them from the water. This takes places through the power of chemical reactions. Even biological treatments involve chemistry at their core.

  • Benefits And Disadvantages Of The Advanced Oxidation Process
    Benefits And Disadvantages Of The Advanced Oxidation Process

    In many water and wastewater treatment applications, there are a number of pollutants that are difficult to reduce by physical, chemical, or biological means alone. In more recent years, there has been a growing concern regarding pharmaceutical drugs in drinking water and aquatic environments. Pesticides get caught in runoff from farms into freshwater supplies.
