  • Containment for Ground Water, Surface Water, And Leachate

    Containment measures are often performed to prevent, or significantly reduce, the migration of contaminants in soils or ground water. Containment is necessary whenever contaminated materials are to be buried or left in place at a site. In general, containment is performed when extensive subsurface contamination at a site precludes excavation and removal of wastes because of potential hazards ...

  • Treatment of drinking water containing iron using Electrocoagulation

    Electrocoagulation (EC) technique was adopted for the treatment of iron containing drinking water using a reactor of 3 l capacity having 1 l liquid volume. Experimental investigation was carried out to observe the effect of different operating parameters such as pH, current density, inter-electrode distance and conductivity on the removal of iron from the iron-rich aqueous solution prepared with ...

  • Continuous water recycling for reusable plastic containers

    Abstract The pilot study and full scale installation of UF-RO based System to recycle around 75% of wastewater from plastic pallet washing facility is described. The installed System had several issues that had to be resolved. Cooling tower was installed to cool water to below 85 o F. Ion exchange Systems were installed after the UF membranes to remove iron and silica. Multiple filtration ...

  • EcoloBlue Emergency A.C.E. Container - Water From Air

    At EcoloBlue, we are trying to raise awareness about our All Contained Emergency (A.C.E. Container) solution in a 40ft container. It is a self contained, powered, water generation, and bottling system (600 to 1000 260ml pouches per hour) that provides up to 2,000 liters of pure drinking water daily from the Humidity in the Air. EcoloBlue’s A.C.E. Container is designed for solutions such as ...

  • Cleaning mold containing surfaces

    Once a determination is made that a moldy surface can be cleaned instead of removed or demolished, what cleaning agents are effective in removing or killing the mold? Many factors influence the selection of a cleaning agent. 1). The type of surface to be cleaned: Is it porous? Hard such as cement or sheetrock? Soft, such as cloth, fabric or wallpaper? Absorbent and thick such as rugs, ...

  • Containment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Containment treatments are often performed to prevent, or significantly reduce, the migration of contaminants in soils or ground water. Containment is necessary whenever contaminated materials are to be buried or left in place at a site. In general, containment is performed when extensive subsurface contamination at a site precludes excavation and removal of wastes because of potential hazards, ...

  • Bacterial biofilms formed in arsenic-containing water: biodeterioration of water network materials

    The immersion of any material in a water system triggers a surface microbial colonization which simultaneously influences the corrosion behavior of the substratum. The present study was focused on the As(V) influence on the biofilm formation and their consequences on the corrosion behavior of different substrata. Commercial materials used in water distribution networks: alloys based on Fe, Zn ...

  • How To Avoid Penalties For Not Containing Spills

    "Chemical spills can cost your company millions of dollars not to mention the bad publicity that results from suffering a spill. Every business wants to avoid the possibility of an uncontained hazardous material spill if at all possible. To do this you need a spill containment system designed for the type of hazardous materials that your handle. Safe Drain ...

  • Spill Containment, Industrial & Environmental Solutions

    ULTRA-EVER DRY is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating that will completely repel almost any liquid. Ultratech EverDry uses proprietary nanotechnology to coat an object and create a barrier of air on its surface. This barrier repels water, oil and other liquids unlike any coating seen before.
