  • Water reuse technology trains for medium-level water

    Wastewater is considered as stable and substantial amount of alternative water resource. In case of South Korea, it is known that 73.2 percents of supplied water discharge 16 million m3/day of treated effluent from municipal wastewater treatment plants. Calculation simply tells that 0.58 billion m3/year can be available if only 10 percent of wastewater could be reused. In this study, a pilot MBR ...

  • A survey of ancient Minoan water technologies

    A survey is presented of water technologies used by the ancient Minoan civilization during the Bronze Age. This survey considers eleven Minoan settlements on the eastern part of Crete and is based upon a field assessment of the water technologies. While water systems had a monumental role in the life of the Minoans there has been little understanding of these ancient systems. Partially this can ...

  • Application of the membrane technology to control ammonia in surface water

    Amnonium ion is effectively removed by Reverse Osmosis membranes (Brackish water, BW; Saline water, SW). The removal efficiency of ammonium ion from a solution containing ammonium ion which is not complexed is varying in the range of 5–60%. On the contrary, ammonium ion forms complexes with other ions in water and wastewater removal efficiency was as high as 99% for the synthetic solution which ...

  • Inactivation of Legionella with the DiaCell® water treatment technology

    Legionella constitutes a new and increasingly stronger con-tamination risk many of water systems, such as cooling towers or hot sanitary water distribution networks. European certifica-tions impose concentration limits of 1’000 Cfu/mL [1], waters with higher levels must be treated. At levels higher than 100’000 Cfu/mL the installations must be stopped and disin-fected immediately. Many ...


  • Innovative Technology to Implement a Reuse Water Program

    The city of Fort Myers has a population of approximately 58,000 and is located in Lee County, Florida. Over the last couple of years the city has experienced one of the highest growth rates in the country. The rapid increase in population in southwest Florida has stressed the available yield of the existing fresh water aquifers. Spurred by its involvement in the regional irrigation distribution ...

  • Mixed oxidant technology treats water in Rwanda01

    Plagued by a legacy of civil war, ethnic genocide and the HIV/AIDS epidemic, many rural communities in Rwanda lack access to adequate drinking water. Although many inhabitants purify water by boiling, this time-consuming and energy-intensive practice is impractical for most. A water and power utility provides drinking water to the capital, Kigali City, and all urban centers of Rwanda, while rural ...

  • Membrane Technology in Water Treatment in the Mediterranean Region

    Water is the most essential resource of life. About 97,5 % of the World’s water resources (1.386 Mio km³) are salty seawater, not usable for agriculture, technical purposes or simply quenching the thirst of about 6 Billion people on Earth. Just 2.5 % of the world’s water is fresh water, but only 30 % of it are accessible for us, either as groundwater or as surface water bodies. ...
