  • Contaminated water still troubles Japan nuke plant

    The radioactive water that has accumulated at Japan's crippled nuclear power plant remains the biggest problem hampering the cleanup process three years after the disaster. The Fukushima Dai-ichi plant has stabilized substantially since the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami destroyed its power and cooling system, triggering meltdowns. Massive amounts of water are being used to cool the ...

  • Veolia to supply Customised Water Flood water treatment system module for Woodside FPSO offshore Western Australia in a multimillion US dollar contract

    Veolia, through its subsidiary VWS Westgarth. has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by Aibel Singapore on behalf of Woodside Petroleum Ltd. for the supply of the Customised Water Flood water treatment system on the Ngujima-Yin Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility that will operate in Woodside's Greater Enfield Area Development fields, offshore northwest Australia. ...

  • Metal sulfides could help clean up nuclear waste

    A number of materials and methods are available to dispose of harmful nuclear waste, but scientists continue to search for improved storage options. New research has identified materials, known as layered metal sulfides, that could help clean up liquid nuclear waste. These materials have unique properties, making them stable and useful over a wide range of conditions with considerable ...

  • University finds metal sulfide solution for nuclear waste

    Nuclear power has advantages, but, if this method of making power is to be viable long term, discovering new solutions to radioactive waste disposal and other problems are critical. Otherwise nuclear power is unlikely to become mainstream. A team of Northwestern University chemists is the first to focus on metal sulfide materials as a possible source for nuclear waste remediation methods. Their ...

  • Singapore `load out` of VWS Westgarth SRP/SWRO package for Single Buoy Moorings (SBM)

    Single Buoy Moorings are converting an oil tanker to a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, which is part of the Espirito Santo field, located deepwater offshore Brasil, for Shell. SBM awarded the contract to VWSW on the 13th April 2007. VWSW have gained experience with this Client on four previous contracts, two for Brasil and two for Angola, namely; FPSO Brazil (offshore ...

  • Natural gas wastewater re-use

    When it became apparent the natural gas industry in the Marcellus Shale was going to create a need for treating large quantities of wastewater, the Larson Design Group found itself uniquely positioned to fill that niche creating a subsidiary, TerrAqua Resource Management, which treats for re-use industry wastewater adjacent to its offices at Water Tower Square on Commerce Park Drive. The ...

  • Idaho aquifer decline could hinder radioactive monitoring

    A continued drop in underground water levels could make it more difficult to monitor the movement of radioactive contamination in an aquifer below an eastern Idaho nuclear facility, scientists say. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey in a 36-page report released Monday said the Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer level has dropped below ...

  • Laboratory study cuts fracking waste`s radioactivity

    Researchers believe they have found an unlikely way to decrease the radioactivity of some hydraulic fracturing wastewater: Mix it with the hazardous drainage from mining operations. The wastewater is created when some of the chemical-laced water used to fracture thick underground rocks flows back out of the wellbore. The water is tainted with chemicals, toxins and in some parts of the country - ...

  • Storied nuke plant becomes environmental wasteland

    A stainless steel tank the size of a basketball court lies buried in the sandy soil of southeastern Washington state, an aging remnant of U.S. efforts to win World War II. The tank holds enough radioactive waste to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool. And it is leaking. For 42 years, tank AY-102 has stored some of the deadliest material at one of the most environmentally contaminated places in ...

  • Hanford tank may be leaking waste into soil

    An underground tank holding some of the worst radioactive waste at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site might be leaking into the soil. The U.S. Energy Department said workers at Washington state's Hanford Nuclear Reservation detected higher radioactivity levels under tank AY-102 during a routine inspection Thursday. Spokeswoman Lori ...
