  • Fires at Composting Facilities: Causes and Conditions

    The subject of fires at composting facilities is a bad news/good news situation. The bad news is that fires are more common than we realize. Ask a group of facility operators if they have had to deal with a fire, and the majority will quietly admit they have. The good news is that we don’t realize that fires are fairly common at composting facilities. Most are neither frequent nor destructive ...

  • Industrial cooling water fouling by Dreissenidae

    Together with the cooling water, a wide range of living organisms is entrained into cooling water systems, which can readily colonise the available surfaces in the system. Growth conditions in the cooling water system often are ideal for sessile organisms: the steady water flow assures abundance of nutrients and oxygen, while access for predators is limited. The consequence of this is that ...


  • Treating Industrial Water with Membrane Technology

    A variety of industries are finding that it makes sense to reevaluate the way they treat industrial process water, both to improve the quality of their products and increase the efficiency of their processes. Purification systems utilizing crossflow membrane filtration, such as reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF) or ultrafiltration (UF) can be a good alternative to traditional filtration ...
