  • Evaluation of an emerging water treatment technology: ceramic membranes

    Historically, low-pressure membranes (microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF)) used in potable water treatment are made of polymers (polysulfone (PS), polypropylene (PP), polyethersulfone (PES), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) etc). Recently, membranes made of ceramic materials (aluminium oxide) have been developed by MetaWater (Japan), Kubota (Japan) and others and is being marketed in the ...

  • Building on tradition

    A new technology is making a name for itself in potable water filtration. And, according to AMT Systems, it is the most cost-efficient advance since the introduction of the dual media filter. Your filters need to be washed every day. What would your energy, water and waste treatment saving be if they only required washing every four or five days? You need to increase the output of the works. Are ...

  • The mystery of electronic water treatment unveiled

    The problems of scale are well known to those living and working in "hard" water areas. Scale is the undesirable consequence of water supplies becoming super-saturated with dissolved minerals.  These problems are of greater significance if found in industrial water systems and commercial buildings. Scaling problems commonly occur, even in "soft" water areas, when a fluid stream is ...

  • At Freedom Bay, They`re Free to Build

    In Portsmouth, Rhode Island, developers are moving full speed ahead at Freedom Bay – a residential development of luxury townhouses serving the burgeoning over 55 population. It is one of many such communities springing up across the country. Freedom Bay’s approach to waste water treatment, on the other hand, is not as common. This planned development sits at the edge of protected ...

  • The The `Design for Autonomous Net-Zero Water Buildings` Project Funded By NSF

    The students at the University of Miami will know firsthand the importance of rethinking the way we handle wastewater and water with a Net-Zero water treatment system on site.   The project showed the viability and feasibility to take buildings off the water grid to provide water recycling and how it can be achieved without raising the cost of high quality water. The research team ...

  • Sustainable wastewater separation treatment systems coupled with nutrient and water reducing greywater reuse technologies

    Nationally and internationally, pressure is increasing to introduce nutrient reducing, water conserving and recycling measures for sustainable residential and small community water/wastewater systems. Reports of inadequate water quality and quantity are being reported daily. Over the past thirty years the federal government and State of Alaska have invested over 4 billion dollars installing piped ...

  • Water technology magazine features an article on ITS president

    Lead contamination — as well as other metals that could be found in plumbing systems — presents serious risks for members in a household, especially children. Recent studies show that lead can affect children’s developing brains when it enters the body in abundance and displaces zinc and ultimately disrupts brain cell growth. For adults, approximately 80 percent of lead that is ...
