Hydrocarbon Bioremediation – Cleaning fuels & motor oil spills on water - Case Study
Background Nanobite Products proved how effective they are in hydrocarbon bioremediation on water with the almost total remediationin one week offuel spillsfrom abandoned cars. Read on… On March 30 2006, in Black Sod Bay in County Mayo, between 45 and 50 cars were transported from a neighbouring island destined for scrap. They were deposited at low tide on the shoreline to await transportation. As soon as the tide came in, it became apparent that oil, diesel, petrol had begun to seep from the broken...
Oil Well Production Water - Case Study
IntroductionClean Water Technology, Inc. (CWT) is a global water and wastewater treatment firm serving Clients worldwide. The Colombian based SAIDA S.A. (Soluciones Ambientales Integrales de La Amazonia “SAIDA”), provides wastewater treatment for several oil well processors in the area. With increased production from several of their Clients, SAIDA needed to expand their Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) to handle increased capacity quickly. SAIDA relied on CWT for assistance.ChallengeSAIDA’s...

Techniques for Oil in Water Analysis
The people responsible for conducting oil in water measurements understand thatthe measurement can be quite challenging. Wastewater from different sources cancontain many different types of hydrocarbons, each with different chemical make-ups.On top of the lack of chemical uniformity in different oils, there has been a largevariety of methods developed to quantify the oil in the wastewater. While none of thefollowing methods is perfect, each will have its own advantages and disadvantagesfor oil in water analysis.Oil...
CeraQTM Ceramic Membranes Provide Robust Solution For Automotive Parts Manufacturing
Project Background Ceramic membranes are growing in acceptance into the water and wastewater treatment industries due to their ability to operate at higher temperatures and wide chemical compatibility. This characteristic allows the membranes to be operated in high temperature appli- cations, difficult waste streams and applications where harsh cleaning chemicals are required. Oil water separa- tion has been a difficult process to perform using a poly- meric membrane and ceramic membranes are becoming recognized...
