Validating Your Ballast Water Management System
Bio-UV, a manufacturer of ballast water management systems (BWMS) that utilize UV disinfection, was looking for a reliable and accurate indicative analysis to validate the installation of their BWMS system during commissioning. Read the full case study to learn more.
Guidelines For Biocide Performance Assessment Using 2nd Generation ATP
The following are guidelines for execution of biocide performance studies (or ‘kill studies’) on industrial process samples such as oilfield process waters, pulp and paper process waters, metalworking samples, fuels and fuel-associated waters. These guidelines have been generated to leverage the unique features of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) monitoring test kits from LuminUltra Technologies Ltd. which include provisions to minimize interferences from various sources including suspended particles, organic molecules, heavy metals, dissolved solids, residual biocides and extra-cellular ATP.
Microbiologist Develops Improved Technology For Poultry Food Safety
One Friday evening in the spring of 2019, Abhi Upadhyay, assistant professor of food microbiology and safety in the Department of Animal Science, found himself watching a video showing microbubbles for pet care and grooming. He started thinking about using this technology for food safety and spent the weekend researching its potential, current state of the field and appropriate grant opportunities.
We Brewed Beer From Recycled Wastewater — And It Tasted Great
On Earth Overshoot Day (August 22 this year), Village Brewery, a Calgary craft beer-maker, joined University of Calgary researchers and Xylem Technologies, a U.S.-based water technology company, to brew a crisp blond ale from reused wastewater — the first case of direct potable reuse in Alberta and possibly Canada.
EPA Develops National Picture Of Underground Storage Tank Facilities And Leaking Underground Storage Tank Sites
More than 500,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) can be found in communities across the country, storing petroleum and other hazardous substances. Leaks or spills of these substances can contaminate the surrounding soil and groundwater, which can compromise public and private drinking water supplies. These toxic chemical releases can pose serious health, economic, and environmental risks to nearby residents.
4 Lessons From A Dutch Utility Circular Collaboration
On the surface, beauty products and water treatment are worlds apart. After all, the glitz and glamour of cosmetics and utility-scale operations don't often mix.
UF/RO System Treating Mine-Influenced Water To Remove Selenium
A Phosphorus mine in Wyoming needed to treat high selenium concentrations leaching into the surface water. A 3-month pilot study of a UF/RO system was conducted to reduce selenium levels under the US EPA's maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 0.05 mg/L, and mitigate impact to the ecosystem, especially aquatic species. Read the full case study to learn how Toray's high-rejection energy-efficient RO (TMGD series) removed the selenium at reduced feed pressures, projected to save the plant energy costs for years.
Membrane Technologies Achieve Zero Liquid Discharge In India's Special Economic Zone
Zydus Infrastructure operates the Pharmez Special Economic Zone (SEZ) near Ahmedabad, where a 'common effluent treatment plant' (CETP) collects industrial wastewater from 12 pharmaceutical sites, treating it via clarification, followed by a 750 KLD membrane bioreactor (MBR) process.
A Few Heavy Storms Cause A Big Chunk Of Nitrogen Pollution From Midwest Farms
Some effects of extreme weather are visible. Other effects are harder to measure, but can be just as harmful. One example is agricultural nitrogen runoff from farmlands in the Mississippi River Basin. It mainly comes from fertilizer that farmers apply to millions of acres of crops.
Meat Processing Companies: Benefits Of Electrocoagulation
While vegetarianism and veganism have both grown in popularity in the past decade, vegans and vegetarians combined are vastly outnumbered by people who love meat. In the United States, where we have hot-dog-eating contests and food-eating challenges, we consume a lot of meat of all types. Therefore, meat-processing water treatment is required to package and process these foods within the U.S. and across the world.
