  • Downflow filtration technology keeps contaminants at bay

    Just south of present day Lumpkin, GA, you can visit a reconstructed community from the 1850s and experience a taste of everyday life from that time period. In dramatic contrast, you will also find one of the water and wastewater industry’s most advanced filtration technologies in this same area. This technology was installed specifically to protect the Lumpkin area from the damaging effects of ...


  • Keeping Water Soft -- Next Generation Filtration for the Oil & Gas Industry

    There is a need in many segments of the oil and gas production industry for an improvement in water filtration over traditional methods. This is especially true since the trend in oil and gas production is toward tighter, less permeable reservoirs and greater use of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques, many of which involve injecting water into oil reservoirs. In order to protect ...

  • Water treatment technology for produced water

    Large amounts of produced water are generated during oil and gas production. Produced water, as it is known in the oil industry, is briny fluid trapped in the rock of oil reservoirs. The objective of this study was to test produced waters from a Montana USA oilfield using a mobile station to design a plant to cost efficiently treat the produced water for agricultural irrigation. We used combined ...

  • Assessing decentralised wastewater treatment technologies: correlating technology selection to system robustness, energy consumption and GHG emission

    In this study, we compared two different types of decentralised systems in South East Queensland (SEQ) designed to produce Class A+ recycled water, and assessed their system robustness to shock loads, energy consumption and fugitive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We found that through BioWin® modelling, the membrane reactor (MBR) system was relatively robust to hydraulic ...
