  • How big is the distributed energy opportunity for water and wastewater utilities?

    Energy costs for water utilities are large, and growing Energy is a significant cost for many water utilities, and costs are growing as more energy-intensive forms of water supply, including desalination, are being used. Energy is typically the second-largest utility budget item in developed countries, after labour. In many developing countries, energy can account for 70% or even more, of ...

  • Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds

    Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. ...

  • Building Energy Modeling 101: HVAC Design and Operation Use Case

    A great deal of energy use in buildings goes toward heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). In 2015, HVAC consumed 15.5 quads. The first step in reducing HVAC energy use is reducing heating and cooling load—i.e., the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building—typically by reducing heat from equipment and lighting; minimizing unnecessary ...

  • Evaluation of a Horizontal Well

    Background: Air Sparging Air sparging is an in-situ remediation technology where air is injected into the saturated zone of an aquifer. It is an alternative to conventional ex-situ pump and treat systems for remediation of contaminated ground water. It is necessary to understand the pattern of air flow that will occur in the subsurface in order to determine the optimal placement, ...

  • Waste management and well-being

    There was the Industrial Revolution in Europe, followed by the Automobile Revolution in the early-to-mid 20th century. The Green and White ones followed after that in the Asian countries. The IT and telecom revolution has transformed lifestyles in the last two decades. After having nourished ourselves with the bounties of Mother Earth, it is time to give back, be grateful and conserve the ‘Gaia’ ...


  • Doing Well by Doing Good

    'Doing Well by Doing Good' is more than a feel good byproduct of a company's corporate social responsibility endeavours. It is a fundamental business precept that lies at the core of sound management practice. Finding creative business solutions to address any of the pressing social or economic problems of today's increasingly complex world is as important to the overall bottom line performance ...

  • Rationalising water management policies: tube well development and resource use sustainability in Balochistan region of Pakistan

    The groundwater driven agricultural production is increasingly under threat due to rapidly depleting groundwater table in upland Balochistan region of Pakistan. Both government and water users can be blamed for the foreseen disaster. The government’s policy for groundwater development following over estimation of groundwater reserves and the water user’s inefficient usage are the main reasons ...

  • Domestic well database development and integration into a GIS: an approach for managing ground water resources

    Connecticut is dominated by rural communities which rely upon individual domestic wells in fractured crystalline bedrock for water supply. The individualized nature of ground water usage has made ground water resource planning on a regional or townwide basis non-existent. In recent years there has been increased development and concerns expressed regarding the sustainability of the fractured ...

  • Latin America well-positioned for CDM

    The coastal desert of Colombia’s La Guajira state is a world away from Kyoto, the temperate Japanese city where representatives of 159 countries in 1997 signed the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouses gases. The Caribbean laps against rickety settlements. Herds of goats range across scorching sands. Months, whole years, pass without rain. But Kyoto is well known to the inhabitants of La ...


  • Extraction well design for DNAPL recovery.

    The potential for downward migration of dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) into deeper portions of a saturated hydrogeologic unit has important implications for successful groundwater remediation. Little information has been published regarding the design of extraction wells that allow DNAPL recovery without simultaneously creating a conduit for cross contamination by vertical migration ...

  • State of well-water quality in Kakua Chiefdom, Sierra Leone

    Water is the difference between living and non-living and water for drinking should be pollutant free. Thus, in supplies for urban and rural consumption, water quality is one of the most critical parameters to verify. Well and/or open-water systems are easily liable to anthropogenic contaminations, the source of most water-borne epidemics especially in developing countries like Sierra Leone. ...

  • If the well runs dry — climate change adaptation and water document actions

    'Our water is shut off once or twice a month, sometimes more,' says Baris Tekin from his apartment in Besiktas, an historic district of Istanbul, where he lives with his wife and daughter. 'We have about 50 litres of bottled water in the apartment for washing and cleaning, just in case. If the water is off for a really long time we go to my father's place or to my wife's parents,' says Baris, an ...

  • Improved well tuning achieved at a Landfill gas to Energy developer`s sites - Case Study

    Building and managing a high-BTU landfill gas to energy system can present many challenges, but it’s not as complicated as it might seem. The key: start with a healthy, consistently productive wellfield. Morrow Renewables, formerly South Tex Renewables, specializes in doing just that. Headquartered in Midland, Texas, they began in the natural gas industry before building a reputation as one ...

  • How to develop a concerted municipal strategy for water and sanitation

    In many developing countries, particularly in Africa, access to water supply and sanitation comes under the remit of local authorities. To assist the local contracting authorities in developing this service, programme Solidarité Eau (pS-Eau) and the Municipal Development Partnership (MDP) have initiated and coordinated the Concerted Municipal Strategies program (CMS – water and ...

  • Challenges of Developing an EU Strategic Approach to Water Scarcity

    Water scarcity is a serious and growing problem in a number of EU Member States. EU water law has traditionally focused on water quality issues. However, the introduction in 2000 of the Water Framework Directive has provided the first coherent legal tool to address water scarcity and this has been supported by further policy aimed directly at water scarcity. However, there are also many local ...
