  • Taming taste and odor (T & O) problems in a water treatment plant

    Taming Taste & Odor (T&O) Problems Some taste and odors are caused by mineral constituents in the water, e.g. excess chlorine and hydrogen sulfide. However the majority of taste and odor are the result of biologic activity. Spring turnover of lakes and algal blooms are responsible for Blue-green algae (Cyanobacterium), Green algae and diatoms that introduce filter clogging organisms ...

  • Chemicals used for pH Adjustment

    The Chemistry of Limestone Treatment: Limestone is an alkaline agent with the ability to neutralize, or partially neutralize strong acids. The neutralization process occurs when strong acids, in intimate contact with limestone chips, react with Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3, the primary constituent of limestone) to form water, carbon dioxide and calcium salts. The following depicts the neutralization ...

  • Effect of feed type and other factors on soluble microbial product production and its disinfection byproduct formation during biological treatment of wastewater organics

    Soluble microbial products (SMPs) can act as a disinfection byproduct (DBP) precursor besides natural organic matter (NOM) when source water is polluted by biologically treated wastewater effluent that has SMPs as its main component. Influential factors of SMPs as a DBP precursor were investigated in this study. Model feed substrates were biologically incubated to simulate the biological ...

  • The role of chemicals in this thirsty planet

    Abstract As all the chemical elements and most of their attributable compounds are known there is little scope for further discovery in the science of ‘inorganic’ chemistry. ‘Organic’ chemistry is much more exiting as it is based on carbon which can polymerise into a multitude of different compounds and different shapes. Because the number of carbon-based ...
