• 3D Animation Air Foil Bearing

    Construction and functional principle of a turbo blower of the current AERZEN AT and TB series are simple and at the same time effective. As the air supply of modern wastewater treatment plants is clearly designed for maximum availability, high energy efficiency and long maintenance cycles, AERZEN uses for the demanding bearing system within turbo blowers neither oil nor other lubricants - but simply air.

  • Plastic Micro- And Nanoparticles In Drinking Water And Foods

    The prospect of plastics working their way into humans is a rising concern for the public, with information presented to them from various, and sometimes suspect, sources. To cut through the noise, findings from the top available sources — detailed international reviews — are presented here with commentary.

  • Microalgae — A Natural Answer To Purifying Wastewater

    Algae is a major problem for many wastewater treatment plants and water managers. It may also be a solution.

  • 2020 Vision For Water: Better Days Ahead

    The past year was another trying one for the water industry. With the long tail of the Flint lead crisis carrying into 2019 (and 2020, with Lead and Copper Rule revisions still pending), even more contamination headlines were made with the discovery of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) — dubbed “forever chemicals” — in various hotspots across the nation. It even spawned a big-budget movie at year’s end. But 2020, I trust, will be different.




  • West World: Lessons In Future-Focused Utility Management

    California always seems on the precipice, for better or worse. It can symbolize hope and prosperity — from the fortune seekers of the gold rush to today’s would-be Hollywood stars, it’s the place where a brighter future awaits (or, at least, where the sun always shines). Or, it can portend certain doom — a state on fire, both literally and figuratively, where (over)population and natural disasters eventually coalesce into catastrophe.


  • EPA Reveals The Key To Clean Water

    Water and wastewater treatment plant operators may not always love regulators, but they should love what the U.S. EPA water chief had to say about them. Speaking at the “BusinessH20 Water Innovation Summit” in September, the EPA’s assistant administrator for water, Dave Ross, referred to those who clean our country’s drinking water and wastewater as “silent, everyday unsung heroes.” While not as celebrated as others who dedicate themselves to public service, such as police officers, firefighters, and teachers, they are every bit as essential — if not more so.
