  • Potential for wastewater reclamation and reuse in Lebanon

    Eleven major wastewater treatment plants are planned for construction along the sea coast of Lebanon to handle the flow from the major urban centres. The plants are expected to generate approximately 640,000 m3 of treated sewage daily, and the effluent is planned to be disposed into the sea. In the light of the water deficiency that the country would be facing in the coming years, the reuse ...

  • Wastewater reclamation using discarded reverse osmosis membranes for reuse in irrigation in Djibouti, an arid country

    The purpose of this paper is to establish the feasibility of recovering discarded reverse osmosis (RO) membranes in order to reduce the salinity of domestic treated wastewater. This study shows that the reuse of RO membranes is of particular interest for arid countries having naturally high mineralized water such as Djibouti. The pilot desalination unit reduces the electrical conductivity, the ...

  • Case study - Oxidizer energy recovery options

    Overview The mainstream media today is full of allusions to energy awareness and conservation. Just as visible these days are media references to astronomical dollar figures that can boggle the mind. This article does not seek to break out of that mold, but rather to conform to it – as Oxidizer Stack Heat Recovery offers a tremendous opportunity for both energy conservation and ...

  • Water Sustainability

    I7.1  | Water Optimization – 30% Groundwater Use Reduction Tabatha Pellerin, Senior Program Manager, AECOM AECOM assisted the Entergy Lewis Creek gas/coal fired electric power plant with water conservation efforts prompted by a goal of 30% ...

  • Gwinnett County case study: Using data to optimize operations

    Challenge: Serving a population of 750,000 and 15 municipalities, the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources (GCDWR) has three (3) water reclamation facilities and two (2) water plants. The GCDWR maintains over 200 pumping stations to support its distribution and collection systems. Regulatory and operational data are collected from the County:s treatment facilities and ...


  • Recycled Water saves California Farms

    After studies show no viable microorganisms in tertiary treated wastewater, growers in Salinas Valley now get two-thirds of their agricultural water needs from recycled sources. RECYCLED water is saving the farm for approximately 75 growers in the Salinas Valley along California’s Central Coast. Because their wells were becoming contaminated with seawater, these growers began irrigating their ...


  • Evaluation of Potential Benficial Reuse of San Ardo Produced Water

    ABSTRACTThe goal of this DOE, Aera Energy LLC, and Kennedy/Jenks Consultants funded project was to evaluate the potential for treatment and beneficial reuse of produced water from an oilfield in San Ardo, California. A 10 - 30 gpm reverse osmosis (RO) pilot plant was constructed and operated for nine months. The key constituents of concern include total dissolved solids (7000 mg/l ...

  • Evaluation and Testing of Technologies for Brine Minimization at Eastern Municipal Water District

     ABSTRACT Eastern Municipal Water District (Eastern) in Southern California is facing increasing brine disposal challenges at its two inland desalter facilities. In most cases at inland sites, the disposal of brine involves either the dilution of the waste stream in another receiving body or the concentration of brine solutions (Truesdall et al., 1995). In the case of Eastern, brine ...

  • Utilizing unconventional water sources for industrial reuse

    Reclamation and reuse of unconventional wastewater sources for plant raw water, cooling water and process pre-treatment has increased substantially due to increases in the cost of drinking water, recurring water shortages that can impact business operations, and tightening government regulation. Water is required in almost every industrial sector for the processing and manufacture of products. ...

  • Spiral-Wound Elements for Potable Water Treatment

    Introduction Any new technology must overcome perceptions of the marketplace, which are not accurate. As a technology moves into new areas of application, new misconceptions also arise. Crossflow membrane technology is no exception. The first man-made, pressure-driven 'crossflow' membranes were made in flat sheet form. This membrane had to be configured in a device, and was first made in ...


  • Producing High-Purity Recycled Water for Industrial Applications with Microfiltration and Reverse Osmosis: Lessons Learned

    ABSTRACTThe East Bay Municipal Utility District (District), with the assistance of Black & Veatch, studied the feasibility of treating secondary and tertiary effluents using microfiltration (MF) followed by reverse osmosis (RO) to produce high-purity, recycled water for use as boiler make-up water at a local refinery. A pilot-scale test program was developed to demonstrate the ability of the ...

  • Remote controlled `Pit Hog™` dredge removing sludge from aeration lagoons at Los Alisos, California, Waste Water Treatment Plant

    The Los Alisos Water District Water Reclamation Plant is removing raw sewage solids, decayed algae and microorganisms, and algae-laden sludge from its aeration lagoons using a Liquid Waste Technology (LWT) remote controlled lagoon dredging system. The tertiary wastewater treatment plant treats four million gallons per day. Officials of the Lake Forest, California facility initiated the buildup ...

  • Application of membrane technology in wastewater

    The City of Rio Rancho is the fastest growing and fourth largest city in New Mexico. The City currently relies heavily on groundwater for water supplies. To sustain its long-term water needs, the City has undertaken a feasibility study to develop a Water Reuse Strategy that will significantly expand the use of reclaimed water, reduce groundwater withdrawals, and provide advanced ...

  • Texas` Oldest Living Reuse System Tells All

    ABSTRACTOdessa initiated reuse of its wastewater effluent in 1949. Over the last 57 years, the program has grown to incorporate industrial, irrigation, and residential customers. Through reuse of the effluent, billions of gallons of water have been conserved for the potable water system. INTRODUCTIONOdessa is a city of approximately 100,000 people located in West Texas. The climate is arid where ...

  • Hired metals analyser ensures remediation success

    Cognition Land and Water Ltd, a UK based remediation specialist, has hired a portable XRF metals analyser to improve the speed of remediation work at a project in London’s Kentish Town. The project had a major impact on local residents so timescales were extremely tight but Cognition’s Charlie Jarvis says “It would not have been possible to meet the deadline without the use of ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...
