Water Use and Reuse in Manufacturing
Efficiency advances in wastewater reuse and desalination are bringing on-site treatment within reach of more manufacturing operations Three factors — climate, overuse, and pollution — are now propelling the manufacturing industry toward a sea change in its water use. Demand for fresh water is high and increasing. The U.S. Census Bureau has estimated that the U.S. manufacturing industry requires 18 billion GPD of water for use in production operations. Manufacturing accounts for almost 25% of global...
Biofilm effect on Cooling Towers for industrial purpose - Case Study
Cooling towers are used widely in the industry for cooling down a process, there exist many version or types of cooling towers, and each designed with its advantages for the process. The generic term "cooling tower" is used to describe both direct (open circuit) and indirect (closed circuit) heat rejection equipment. While most think of a "cooling tower" as an open direct contact heat rejection device, the indirect cooling tower, sometimes referred to as a "closed circuit cooling tower" is nonetheless also a...

In survey, industry insiders rank importance of perceived market drivers, including water scarcity and cost The publication Water. desalination + reuse recently surveyed a diverse pool of 347 industry professionals from around the world on the factors driving market development in water reuse. The report for the survey, “Water Reuse: Drivers, Innovations and Public Perceptions,” covers many familiar themes, but the results offer some new insight by ranking concerns and quantifying market drivers...
Avoid Hurricane Tragedies by Storing Potable Water
In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria more than half of Puerto Ricans lacked access to potable water. Since Puerto Rico is an island, supplies couldn’t simply be shipped over land. With ports and airfields damaged, supplies were slow to reach those in need. When Hurricane Irma hit Florida and Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas, many people and organizations also found themselves scrambling to find potable water. A healthy human can go weeks without eating food. Even under an ideal situation, a fit adult...
What Is Water Scarcity?
Whether it’s from drought or lack of access, more than a billion people around the world don’t have enough clean water Acute drought conditions and dwindling natural water resources are focusing more attention on what continues to be a worldwide problem: a lack of access to fresh, potable water. Water scarcity can be defined as a lack of sufficient water, or not having access to safe water supplies. Water is a pressing need in many areas of the world. That scarcity is spreading as water is needed...
