  • Crossflow Membrane Applications for Glycol-based aqueous solutions

    Introduction This document is a guide for water treatment engineers to better understand crossflow membrane applications for glycol-based aqueous solutions. It includes glycol applications we have sold equipment for, applications we have successfully tested, and applications we have not tested but are expected to be technically feasible. Glycol-based solutions are commonly used by a ...

  • Is Green a Color or an Objective?

    “Environmentally friendly” is a term that is applied with a spatula in today’s products’ labels in ever increasing numbers.   What does it mean?  Does it mean it’s better for nature, people, pets, or for the profit line of the company offering it?    In the industry and elsewhere, we see a marked ...

  • Process analytics in ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol plants – Case Study

    Perfect solutions from Siemens Process Analytics Ethylene Oxide (EO) Ethylene oxide, C2H4O, under normal conditions, is a colorless, flammable gas. It is very toxic and carcinogen. Industrial production started in 1925 using the chlorohydrin process and was improved in 1931 by introducing the much more economic direct catalytic oxidation method. Currently, ...

  • Airport De-Icing Operations and Waste Water - Case Study

    De-icing of aircrafts and airfield pavement is important to ensure the safety of passengers and cargo operators. These operations can have negative environmental impacts, due to the presence of ethylene glycol and propylene glycol, which contribute to high levels of BOD in surface water.  Regulations are in place to ensure that waste from de-icing operations are properly collected and ...

  • Dissolved Solids and Water Purification

    To make drinking water palatable, the level of dissolved substances (TDS) can’t be too high, but it also can’t be too low Water quality metrics are needed to ensure that surface and groundwater – common sources of water for human consumption – are free from contaminants and pollutants. The level of dissolved solids, also commonly referred to as total ...

  • Wastewater Mining and Reuse: Creating Benign Future Scenarios

    Wastewater mining: In addition to being perhaps the most uninviting combination of words, it sounds like a most unlikely idea. But for almost 30 years, Aqueonics, now headquartered in Greenville, SC, has pioneered such systems, starting in the ’80s, with its first wastewater mining project. For that project, Aqueonics provided an onsite or decentralized treatment system for a developer in ...

  • Salting icy roads affects water supplies

    It’s basic chemistry: Saline water’s freezing point is much lower than fresh water’s, which can help keep ice from forming on roads. To reduce winter accidents, municipal and state workers often apply salt and other compounds to icy roads, because if not accidents start to happen and people end up in need cash in emergency. Unfortunately, this may have unintended consequences ...

  • Home, Sweet Wastewater Building

    How can a wastewater treatment plant embedded into a neighborhood not use much landmass and be environmentally friendly and user-friendly all at the same time? One system aims to do all of the above. Why should a wastewater treatment plant always have to look like, well, a wastewater treatment plant?  A visual trip through project files of Aqueonics Inc., based in Greenville, SC, reveals photos ...
