  • MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors

    One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt ...

  • The MIEX® Technology for Municipal Wastewater Treatment

    The MIEX® Technology is designed for the removal of dissolved organic carbon (DOC). Until recently, the commercial application of the MIEX® Technology has been limited the treatment of potable water from surface or ground water bodies. The MIEX® Process is now being evaluated for application in municipal wastewater applications. An example of this is the use of the MIEX® Process for the treatment ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with nonhalogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific ...

  • Design configurations for commercial application of biomass carriers in small wastewater treatment plants

    Introduction Moving bed type reactors are bio-film processes utilizing small, plastic biomass carriers that mix in the water. The use of biomass carriers is becoming common world-wide, for many applications, some of which are: compact low operation units, industrial wastewater roughing filters, retrofit and upgrade of municipal wastewater treatment plants. The AGARTM Process (Attached Growth ...

  • The effect of electromagnetic fields, from two commercially available water treatment devices, on bacterial culturability

    Commercially available pulsed-electromagnetic field (PEMF) devices are currently being marketed and employed to ostensibly manage biofouling. The reliable application and industry acceptance of such technologies require thorough scientific validation – and this is currently lacking. We have initiated proof-of-principle research in an effort to investigate whether such commercially available ...

  • Immersed Membrane Technology for Advanced Wastewater Treatment & Water Reuse

    A significant segment of the North American population is unserviced by municipal wastewater systems and, with the seemingly, unending growth of residential communities, commercial complexes, industrial parks and support infrastructure, this situation is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Traditionally serviced by on-site wastewater treatment units, and often relying on groundwater ...

  • DEFERUM high iron removal water treatment plant equipment and technology

    DEFERUM is the ONLY technology available to remove HIGH iron (up to 80mg/L) and gas problems in water distribution, potable water and groundwater environments with very low operating costs. DEFERUM is also eco-friendly!Iron is one of the earth's most plentiful resources, making up at least five percent of the earth's crust. Rainfall seeping through the soil dissolves iron in the earth's surface ...

  • 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 ...

  • A novel technology to improve drinking water quality using natural treatment methods in rural Tanzania

    It is estimated that one billion people worldwide do not have access to treated drinking water. This paper reports on an investigation into the potential of indigenous or natural water treatment methods as alternatives to conventional chemical water treatment methods. The seeds of five natural plant species—Vigna unguiculata, Phaseolus mungo, Glycine max, Pisum sativam, and Arachis hypogea—were ...

  • Applied science drives commercial decision-making

    Site remediation has evolved from energy intensive, mechanically driven remediation processes to more effective and less expensive in-situ processes. The most common in-situ remediation technology is bioremediation although knowledge of in-situ chemical treatments has advanced significantly and it is now frequently implemented on contaminated sites. Microorganisms in the ground have the ability ...

  • 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 ...

  • Condensed Water Treatment Using Pulsed Power

    Introduction Regulatory pressures and economic considerations require industry to become cleaner, more efficient, and more environmentally benign. Such operating principles advance not only good public relations but reduce liability, improve working conditions, and relieve or simplify regulatory reporting obligations. One area where an environmentally friendly technology has been ...

  • Spiral-Wound Elements for Potable Water Treatment

    Introduction Any new technology must overcome perceptions of the marketplace, which are not accurate. As a technology moves into new areas of application, new misconceptions also arise. Crossflow membrane technology is no exception. The first man-made, pressure-driven 'crossflow' membranes were made in flat sheet form. This membrane had to be configured in a device, and was first made in ...


  • Drinking Water Aesthetics Improve with Ozone Treatment

    High quality water sources for municipal use are dwindling, forcing utilities to seek alternate water sources. Many times, aesthetics are the only problem preventing the use of these alternate water sources for potable purposes. Although typically used as a disinfectant, ozone offers municipal water purveyors the benefits of being the strongest commercially available oxidizing agent (Table 1). ...

  • Application of Membrane Technology for the Recovery and Reuse of Water

    Abstract As water and sewer costs are expected to increase over the next decade, membrane technology will continue to be a viable and economical option in the recovery and reuse of water. This paper describes the mechanism of membrane effected separation (specifically reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration and microfiltration), membranes commercially available, membrane element configurations, and how ...
