  • Canarina DESCAR software · industrial water treatment · commands 23

    Discharge conditions: There are three options: Vertical discharge, Horizontal discharge (A-type) and Horizontal discharge (B-type). In the vertical discharge, the discharge flow is perpendicular to the water surface. In the horizontal discharges (A and B), the discharge flow is parallel to the water surface. In the horizontal discharge case, we assume that the discharge vector is always ...

  • Textile Industry Water Use and Treatment

    As the industry turns toward sustainability, decentralized water reuse has potential to reduce ‘virtual water’ toll The textile industry is water-intensive throughout its many processes: sizing, desizing, mercerizing, scouring, bleaching, printing, and finishing. Beyond processing, water footprint calculations often neglect the use of significant amounts of “virtual ...

  • Assessing the abatement potential and cost of Chinese industrial water pollutants

    Water pollution is becoming an increasing threat to China's sustainable development. To respond to this challenge, China has pledged to cut emissions of two major water pollutants, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammonia nitrogen (NH4), and has disaggregated the national target among provinces. However, the abatement potential and costs have not been thoroughly assessed. This paper aims to ...

  • Eco-efficiency improvements in industrial water-service systems: assessing options with stakeholders

    The well-known eco-efficiency concept helps to assess the economic value and resource burdens of potential improvements by comparison with the baseline situation. But eco-efficiency assessments have generally focused on a specific site, while neglecting wider effects, for example, through interactions between water users and wastewater treatment (WWT) providers. To address the methodological ...

  • Prediction of urban water demand on the basis of Engel's coefficient and Hoffmann index: case studies in Beijing and Jinan, China

    Domestic and industrial water uses are the most important segment of urban water consumption. Traditional urban water demand models are usually based on water consumption quotas or statistical relationships, which usually overestimate urban water demands. The efficiency of domestic and industrial water uses is associated with living standards and levels of industrialization. The correlation ...

  • Hierarchical prediction of industrial water demand based on refined Laspeyres decomposition analysis

    A recent study decomposed the changes in industrial water use into three hierarchies (output, technology, and structure) using a refined Laspeyres decomposition model, and found monotonous and exclusive trends in the output and technology hierarchies. Based on that research, this study proposes a hierarchical prediction approach to forecast future industrial water demand. Three water demand ...

  • The sustainable industrial water cycle - a review of the economics and approach

    Studies suggest that only 31% of Europe is thought to have a water supply that is either plentiful or sufficient to meet demands until 2015, and water stress indexes show a number of countries with traditionally wet climates such as Belgium and Bulgaria, under significant water stress. Therefore, there is both a desire and a need to reduce the consumption of water over much of Europe. For ...

  • Environmental Industrial Water & Algae Control in lagoons and ponds.

    Proven site trails and report shows a excellent reduction/removal of Microcystis and filamentous algae where we proved excellent results with ASMP-1000.A systems These ponds are characterised by large open lagoons with a fairly high residence time of water and UV exposure in the summer months. During the holding period in the open reservoirs, filamentous algae start growing along with other ...

  • Water pollution control and strategies in Finnish pulp and paper industries in the 20th century

    This paper discusses and analyses the evolution of the Finnish pulp and paper industries and their water pollution control strategies. The Finnish pulp and paper mills are mainly located along water courses in inland areas. The earliest documents on water pollution date back to the early 1900s. In spite of the remarkably good record during recent decades in water pollution control, it can be ...
