• A large citrus grove in central Florida recently incorporated FreeWave Technologies’ industrial wireless M2M communications solutions in a study of autonomous tractors utilized for mowing operations.

  • The operator of a Rocky Mountain based livestock facility approached FreeWave to assist in remote data visualization of water tanks that are vital to its operations.

  • Biopharmaceutical processing is highly precise, and people must rely on various measuring devices to control costs, maintain quality, and avoid accidents. They often use flow meters to accomplish many of those aims. Here are some specific ways professionals working in pharmaceutical processing use these devices, making them so instrumental in successful outcomes.

  • You cannot produce oil without water, because water is present naturally in both onshore and offshore oil reservoirs. This naturally occurring water is called produced water. Produced water has a simple to complex composition that is variable, and it is considered as a mixture of dissolved and particulate organic and inorganic chemicals (Al-Ghouti et al. 2019) with an average of 7 to 10 barrels of produced water being generated for each barrel of oil during the course of an operation (Guerra, Dahm, and Dundorf 2011).

  • The Internet of Things is a network of objects equipped with sensors so they can receive and transmit data via the internet. In agriculture, it involves technologies such as wireless underground communications, subsurface sensing, and antennas in soil. These systems help farmers track conditions on their land in real time, and apply water and other inputs such as fertilizer exactly when and where they are needed.

  • If you want a job done right, you go to a professional — someone who specializes in the task and can make it a priority. Many of us do this when it comes to personal tasks such as oil changes, home repairs and more. The same should be said when it comes to our water systems.

  • Water is one of the world's most critical natural resources, but too many people take it for granted, raising awareness of its importance — and complexities — is too often left out of public discourse. My recent visit to a few engineering colleges as a STEM ambassador made me realize that many engineering programs are offered today than when I went to school.

  • Companies within the food & beverage industry generate significant quantities of wastewater each day. For example, a 16 oz. can of beer is about 90-95% water; however, to make that can, beer producers utilize approximately 7 times this quantity. About 2/3 to 3/4 of the water is typically discharged as wastewater to a municipal sewer system.

  • A number of key drivers poised to impact the future of agriculture are taking shape, and American farmers are already feeling the pressure.

  • Midsummer is the time for forecasts of the size of this year’s “dead zones” and algal blooms in major lakes and bays. Will the Gulf of Mexico dead zone be the size of New Jersey, or only as big as Connecticut? Will Lake Erie’s bloom blossom to a human health crisis, or just devastate the coastal economy?
