  • Water Reuse

    Water is an increasingly scarce resource for much of the World's population. Global warming, an increasing world population and generally increasing incomes mean the demand for water is likely to rise further. If current trends continue, we will use 40% more water by 2024 than we do now. In industrialised countries much of the water used for non-potable purposes such as industrial applications, ...

  • New hurdles for water reuse

    In a letter dated January 19, 2005, the USDA-Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) indicated that if water is to be reused in a poultry processing facility, then this reuse water must be accounted for in the plant’s HACCP program. This requirement may cause some difficulties as processors consider the associated hazard analyses. When water is used to chill or rinse broiler carcasses, fat, ...

In many parts of the ...

  • Reuse of Municipal/Industrial Secondary Eflluent for Water Reuse

    Abstract This paper presents results from pilot and demonstration studies conducted over the past two years at various locations around the world. All studies were conducted on municipal secondary effluent. Data includes: feed water quality, effluent quality (BOD, COD, bacteriological, SDI, others), membrane flux rate, water recovery percentage, membrane permeability, cleaning procedures, ...

  • Championship Reuse

    ABSTRACTLas Colinas is a 12,000-acre high quality residential-commercial development in Irving, Texas, located between Fort Worth and Dallas. One of the foremost appeals of the development is the water features such as lakes and canals that are interspersed throughout the property. In order for the development to succeed and maintain its aesthetic appeal, it was necessary to secure dedicated ...

  • Beyond the barriers of water reuse

    Water reuse may be the moment’s most talked about treatment industry topic. It’s no wonder that as drought persists in regions throughout the world without sign of subsiding, questions about how we can make the most of our water are being asked. An answer can be found in the ways that we apply membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology. As one of the most central components for water ...

  • Water Reuse Terminology

    All water on Earth is used and reused, over and over, in an elegant water cycle. Water reuse occurs in various ways on a daily basis. It happens when a community’s treated wastewater is discharged into rivers or other water bodies. If you live in a community downstream of another, chances are you are reusing water from an upstream town. Scientifically proven advances in water technology ...

  • Water Reuse: The System Perspective

    Water reuse could be viewed as a system composed by different elements, which work together to achieve a final objective (goal) – the beneficial use of reclaimed water. In this article we consider the reuse of municipal wastewater, which is treated and applied for a secondary beneficial use. An example of a water reuse system, focusing on the reuse of municipal wastewater, is shown ...

  • Water Reuse and Conservation

    According to the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program, Global Environment Outlook 3, 2002), the total volume of water on earth is about 1,400 million cubic km (kilometers), of which, only 2.5 per cent, or about 35 million cubic km, is freshwater. Most freshwater is locked up in glaciers, or in deep groundwater aquifers. The usable portion of freshwater is only about 200,000 cubic km of water. ...

  • Water reuse for the bottled water industry

    ABSTRACTThe bottled water industry uses a machine specifically designed for the washing of its containers (19-L capacity) and generates 6-L wastewater/container. This effluent can be used for watering of green areas and car washing. The objectives of the present work were to characterize the effluent and to propose a specific treatment to enable reuse of the effluent from the container washing ...
