  • Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) for Ammonia Removal from Industrial Waste Waters

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. This translates into high penalty fees that are paid by the company discharging these contaminates into the sewage stream. In many cases a membranebased water treatment system can be justified because of a favorable pay back time. ...

  • Energy recovery in the water industry using micro-hydropower: an opportunity to improve sustainability

    The water industry as a whole consumes a considerable amount of energy in the treatment and distribution of water and wastewater. Like all sectors of society today, the industry is focusing efforts on reducing its CO2 emissions and improving the sustainability of its systems and practices. One way of achieving this is through the use of micro-hydropower (MHP) installations in water ...

  • Who used your water yesterday?

    The answer to the question above boils down to numbers in the final analysis. With more than half of the world's population already based in urban areas the additional demand for core services such as water is overtaxing capacities for water supply and disposal in many of the world's larger cities. And the problem is only going to get worse. The proportion of the world's population that will be ...

  • Using LC50 for metals as Water Quality indicator

    One of the causes of low yields or productive deficiencies, in the stage of production of fresh water, more gifts in the aquaculture industry of salmon in Chile, has its origin in the presence of naturally occurring metals, both in bodies of fresh water as in deep wells. The toxicity of metals such as Aluminum and Copper, others, has been described previously and their presence in waters of our ...

  • Overland flow computations in urban and industrial catchments from direct precipitation data using a two-dimensional shallow water model

    This paper presents the experimental validation and the application to a real industrial catchment of a two-dimensional depth-averaged shallow water model used for the computation of rainfall-runoff transformation from direct precipitation data. Instead of using the common approach in flood inundation modelling, which consists in computing the water depth and velocity fields given the water ...
