  • Methods of Purification by Water Innovations, Inc.

    Carbon Filtration is used for several reasons. Its primary purpose is the reduction of chlorine to less than 0.1 ppm. Chorine can damage softener resins, reverse osmosis membranes, and mixed bed deionization resins. Activated carbon will also help control tastes and odors, provide organic and hazardous organic chemical reduction, and some particulate reduction. ...

  • How industrial water filtration can improve efficiency and save you money

    Over the course of the past couple of decades, industrial water filtration has become one of the most important considerations for the average manufacturing facility in North America. These concerns have only increased as water supplies have dwindled and wastewater contamination standards have become more stringent. All of this has led to the need to choose the right industrial water filters and ...

  • Produced water at UGS Dolni Dunajovice

    Water is the main contaminant of natural gas. Mostly, it is a natural element of a reservoir content. When dry gas is injected into a reservoir, it absorbs volume of water there. Together with water, it absorbs hydrocarbons, which can be natural elements of the reservoir or of artificial origin and contaminants which were injected in to the reservoir with natural gas. During a withdrawal, this ...

  • Comparing Evaporative technologies for the Recycling of produced Water

    Both multi-stage and MVR evaporators are capable of producing distilled quality water from produced water.  Distilled water quality ranges from 100 to 500 ppm TDS depending upon the initial TDS of the produced water and the level of concentration of bottoms (waste) obtained. Typical systems are capable of attaining final concentrations ranging from 270,000 ppm to 350,000 ppm TDS.  The ...

  • How is biodiesel produced?

    This article is the first in a series that will take a close look at alternative fuels production and source materials. Over the next several months, we will cover natural gas, propane, ethanol, hydrogen, and fuel cells. This month, we will focus on biodiesel. Methods for creating fuels from renewable biomass feedstocks have been used since the 1800s. Vegetable oils were used in diesel engines ...

  • Determining trace amounts of contaminants in water

    Introduction Pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and pharmaceuticals are a worldwide contamination problem. Several major US water bodies, such as the Hudson River, St. Lawrence River, Fox River and the Great Lakes have been contaminated with PCBs from industries discharging into these water bodies for decades. For example, from approximately 1947 to 1977, the General Electric ...

  • Algae as biomarkers, bioaccumulators and toxin producers

    Uncontrolled accumulation of wastes in marine environments involves an increase in organic substances and/or nutrients, as well as toxicity. The consequences of this enrichment for the homeostasis of ecosystems are unpredictable. The best studied consequence of such enrichment is eutrophication (Conti, 1996). Natural or anthropogenic eutrophication is the enrichment of a water body in nutrients, ...

  • In the World: Small Mexican village produces clean water with solar-powered system

    MIT-developed system runs autonomously, producing 1,000 liters per day. In a small village deep in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula — a day’s drive from any source of clean, drinkable water — researchers from MIT are testing a system that purifies water with the help of the sun. The relatively inexpensive system consists of several modest photovoltaic panels, a large ...

  • Applications Report Presented at the Produced Water Society Seminar 2013

    “Performance Testing of Micro Media and Conventional Filters operating on Heavy Oil Produced Water in the San Joaquin Valley (California)”,  an application note, was presented by Michael Dejak and Michael Sheedy at the 23rd Annual Produced Water Society Seminar taking place in Houston, TX, this past January. The Produced Water Society Seminar is held every year. Each seminar ...

  • Removal of dissolved and dispersed hydrocarbons from oil and gas produced water with MPPE technology to reduce toxicity and allow water reuse

    Abstract Legislation worldwide and current technologies used in the treatment of offshore oil and gas/condensate produced water are mainly aimed at the removal of dispersed hydrocarbons (dispersed oil). From the beginning of this century, new insights in the North Sea area revealed that specific contaminants in produced water are toxic and their impact on the environment was assessed. This ...

  • Analysing four of the most contaminated foodstuffs

    Food adulteration has been around since the Victorian times when cheese was often coloured with lead salts, beer and milk were watered down and flour was bulked out with chalk dust or ground bones [1]. Governments apply stringent legislation and quality standards to food products but the practice of adulteration, driven by greed and profit, is still seen. ...

  • Evaluation of emerging waterborne contaminants in Ireland

    A group of potential emerging contaminants in two Irish drinking water supplies were investigated. The aim was to investigate the presence of emerging contaminants which are not currently routinely monitored or regulated as part of the European Communities Drinking Water Regulations SI 278 of 2007 but are known or anticipated to occur in drinking water supplies. A monthly sampling and analysis ...
