  • Travels with Paul: Breweries and Water Sites

    Each month we’re going to show you what the Partech team have been up to and today we’re sharing the recent adventures of our sales engineer, Paul! Paul’s on the road a lot and so we managed to pin him down to tell us what he’s been up to. Paul started the month of January by visiting Thames Water in Oxford to discuss the way in which they’re using ...

  • Alleviating the flood risk of critical water supply sites: asset and system resilience

    Flooding can have severe impacts on the water supply services and adaptation responses for the provision of high-quality water supplies are necessary to cope with the risks exacerbated by climate change. This paper explores the planning process for adaptation strategies, emphasizing current research and modelling constraints and comparing resilience strategies. The flood hazard, vulnerability and ...

  • Case study - Superfund site, water pump & treat system

    Anguil Aqua Systems LLC was contracted as part of a team of companies to implement a ground water pump and treat system intended to remove trichloroethylene (TCE) from a local aquifer designated as a Superfund Site by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Though the site is nestled between the buildings and roadways of an existing and operating industrial facility, the overall extent of the ...

  • On-site water treatment service cuts costs

    After more than two decades in the global oilpatch, Stuart Snydmiller thinks the future for his startup firm is in water, not petroleum. Or at least waste water.Tangent Environmental Technologies, owned with brother Jason and others, has taken existing technologies and put them together into a package that offers huge savings for drilling firms and any industrial operation that needs to process, ...


  • Spolchemie site remediation and NanoRem field site application

    Site Remediation The Spolchemie site was chosen as one of the NanoRem case study sites, to test two types of nanoparticles (NPs) (zerovalent iron - nZVI and iron oxide NPs) for in situ remediation of BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes) contamination. Nanoremediation was seen as an opportunity to enhance the in situ biodegradation of the BTEX contaminants and to reduce the ...

  • Landfill site selection by using geographic information systems

    Abstract  One of the serious and growing potential problems in most large urban areas is the shortage of land for waste disposal. Although there are some efforts to reduce and recover the waste, disposal in landfills is still the most common method for waste destination. An inappropriate landfill site may have negative environmental, economic and ecological impacts. Therefore, it should be ...


  • A simulation of the fate of nitrogen in an on-site wastewater treatment system

    An experiment to study and to build a mathematical model to reproduce the behavior of nitrogen in a residential wastewater treatment process was performed. A pilot unit receiving grey and black water was used. The pilot consisted in a septic tank followed by a fixed-film, partly aerated bioreactor with effluent recirculation operated under two different scenarios: normal operating conditions and ...

  • High-Resolution Site Characterization with Multilevel Systems

    Within the last few years, the U.S. EPA added a new focus area on high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) to their Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website. The U.S. EPA’s definition of HRSC is: “High-resolution site characterization (HRSC) strategies and techniques use scale-appropriate ...

  • Improving Automation At Remote Sites

    Because water treatment usually involves a large geographic area, automation systems for water/wastewater applications often require remote sites. In industrial water treatment, water is typically treated immediately adjacent to its points of use, and these locations may be across large industrial complexes. In municipal applications, water often is pumped long distances across extensive areas ...

  • On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation

    AbstractIn this manuscript the on-site generation of sodium hypochorite for water and wastewater disinfection will be examined. The objective of this paper is to familiarize the reader with the equipment and operational requirements necessary for on-site sodium hypochlorite generation systems. This manuscript will review the following topics relative to on-site generation systems: Understand the ...

  • High groundwater site conditions

    Specific site conditions: BIOROCK non-electrical sewage treatment plants are unlike other wastewater treatment systems and are perfectly suitable for high groundwater conditions. BIOROCK plants can be installed in high water table or high groundwater sites by one of our trained installers. Our Research and Development team worked hard to find the best design to fit to difficult UK installation ...

  • On-site industrial wastewater treatment

    Priority pollutant behaviour in on-site treatment systems for industrial wastewaters The majority of wastewaters deriving from the chemical industry consist of aqueous discharges produced during the physico-chemical processing of synthetic mixtures involving operations such as filtration, centrifugation, extraction and/or distillation. The wastewater streams, referred to as ...

  • On-site regeneration of transformer oil

    Regeneration of transformer oil at the transformer’s location is an important preventive measure of transformer servicing.   Transformer life time is, in essence, the life time of its insulation system. The most widely used insulation is liquid insulation (transformer oils) and solid insulation (paper, i.e. cellulose insulation). The oil provides for at ...

  • Amistad Dam site

    Summary:At the Amistad Dam site an investigation was made with a 56 electrode STING/Swift system to determine the location of leaks which have effectively drained the giant dam of water. As it was not immediately obvious which array type would return the best data three different arrays were recorded on the same electrode layout. The resulting three 2D profiles show both similarities and ...

  • Water resource management with a combination of underground dam/qanat and site selection of suitable sites using GIS

    Subsurface dams and aqueducts have been used for many years as important sources of water in different parts of the world. Nowadays, little attention is paid to aqueducts. On the other hand, there is a great tendency for constructing and using subsurface dams in many arid and semiarid parts of the world such as Iran. A combination of these two structures was established in ancient Iran including ...

  • Case study - Ozone sparging closure of an industrial VOC spill site adjacent to a water supply well site

    Description An undocumented surface spill at an active manufacturing facility located adjacent to a public water supply well field released chlorinated volatile organic compounds (PCE, and its breakdown products: TCE, c-DCE, and VC) into soils and groundwater.  The driver for site cleanup was three water supply wells located 200 feet downgradient of the site bounds.  The chosen ...

  • ClorTec® An Operational Profile of a Pennsylvania Water Treatment Plant’s On-site Hypochlorite Generating System

    For more than 30 years, on-site generation of sodium hypochlorite has been a key process in water treatment for municipal and industrial applications. The benefits of the on-site generation process over chlorine gas and bulk hypochlorite have been well documented and include: Eliminate bulk storage of hazardous chemicals Reduce risk to plant personnel because of drastically eliminate hazardous ...

  • Sustainable Storm Water Management at the Ford Rouge Complex Redevelopment Site

    The Ford Rouge Center began as a vision by Henry Ford to create a wholly independent, self-contained manufacturing site where every part needed for an automobile could be produced, machined, finished and assembled from raw materials into a completed vehicle, ready for the road. In 1915, in order to turn his vision into reality, Henry Ford purchased approximately 1,100 acres of land located in ...

  • Predicting the site water balance of a phytocapped landfill using HYDRUS 1D

    An alternative landfill capping technique called 'Phytocapping' was trialled in Rockhampton, Australia. In this technique, trees were used as 'bio-pumps' and 'rainfall interceptors' and soil cover as the 'storage' of water. The performance of this system was measured based on its ability to minimise water percolation into waste. The percolation rate was modelled using HYDRUS 1D for two main ...
