  • Silver Nanoparticles May Fight Bacteria Used to Treat Wastewater

    COLUMBIA, Missouri (ENS) – Many everyday consumer items now utilize the emerging science of nanotechnology in the form of silver nanoparticles that are incorporated into items such as bandages, clothing, cosmetics, car wax, and toys. Silver nonparticles can destroy bacteria, but while that is a good characteristic for someone who needs to bandage a cut, it might not be so valuable ...

  • Global Market for Membrane Wastewater Treatment

    Wastewater is, at once, an environmental hazard and a potentially recoverable resource. Generated from a wide array of processes and activities, wastewater may contain hazardous toxins, heavy metals, oils and greases, nutrients, bacteriological components, viruses, pharmaceuticals, and an array of other pollutants. If released into natural or managed waters, these pollutants can contribute ...


  • Screening for antibiotic-resistant bacteria in drinking water

    Harmful bacteria in water are of concern, especially if they are resistant to antibiotics. A new Portuguese study reports on levels of a group of bacteria, staphylococci, in three different types of water in the treatment cycle and analyses their resistance to antibiotics. 'Coagulase-negative staphylococci' (CNS) are common and usually harmless. However, some CNS can cause skin infections when ...

  • Shifts in soil bacteria linked to wetland restoration success

    A new study led by Duke University researchers finds that restoring degraded wetlands -- especially those that had been converted into farm fields -- actually decreases their soil bacterial diversity. But that’s a good thing, say the study’s authors, because it marks a return to the wetland soils’ natural conditions.“It sounds counter-intuitive, but our study shows that in restored wetlands, ...

  • Keeping wastewater treatment self-contained...and portable

    In 2010, Active Water Sciences (AWS) of Palestine, Texas won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award for their portable, self-contained wastewater-treatment system, the Water Phoenix. The ability to convert municipal wastewater into effluent that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards in less than 24 hours with a result of little to no sludge is a big deal, not only to the ...

  • Europe: Reducing wastewater treatment costs and energy consumption

    While Switzerland's wastewater treatment plants are of a high technical standard, the elimination of nutrients remains costly and energy-intensive. Eawag has now further developed a biological process which simplifies the removal of nitrogen from sludge digester liquid, reducing costs by 50% for this treatment step. The new process has already been adopted by a number of wastewater treatment ...

  • New wastewater treatment technology to produce less sludge

    A major environmental challenge for wastewater treatment is the disposal of excess sludge produced during the process. The LIFE Perbiof project has been developing and testing a technology that will help to overcome this challenge. Results demonstrate it can perform highly effective treatment of municipal wastewater (removing 80% of the organic content) while producing low levels of sludge. ...

  • Honolulu faces $1.2 billion wastewater treatment upgrade

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today proposed to not renew Honolulu's permit variance to exempt the Sand Island Wastewater Treatment plant from full secondary treatment requirements. If the variance is denied, Honolulu may have to spend as much as $1.2 billion to upgrade the plant, which handles wastewater from the city of Honolulu and the resort area of Waikiki. The Sand Island ...

  • Peristaltic pumps waste less in wastewater treatment

    The City of Eagan in North Minnesota, USA required a pump capable of accurately dosing 15% sodium hypochlorite or ‘hypo’ for their new wastewater treatment plant. Hypo has outstanding disinfection properties, used in wastewater treatment to kill off bacteria before being discharged back into the environment, and in water treatment as one of the primary methods of drinking water disinfection. It ...

  • MBR Wastewater Treatment Plant in a Touristic Resort

    COMS has recently commissioned an MBR wastewater treatment plant in a touristic resort (Maho Reef) with the total capacity of 720 m3/d and averagely 3600 persons served, composed by means of N. 6 40’ equipped containers. The main function of the commissioned plant is to ensure an high quality of the treated wastewater combined with energy saving solution and, considering the touristic ...

  • Wastewater treatment plant discharges can promote the development of antibiotic resistance in streams

    Widespread use of antibiotics has led to pollution of waterways, potentially creating resistance among freshwater bacterial communities. A new study looked for antibiotic resistance genes in a river basin in Spain, revealing that wastewater discharges can promote the spread of antibiotic resistance in streams and small rivers. Antibiotics are a cornerstone of modern medicine and have saved ...

  • Septic Tank Filters added to WTE wastewater treatment product range

    Waste Tech are proud to introduce Final Effluent and Septic Tank Filters to the UK. The big problem with septic tanks is that their soakaways block with suspended solids carried out of the tank and into the soakaway itself. These solids eventually ruin the soil porosity and the soakaway fails. The Wastewater Filter is fitted into the vertical part of the 'T' on the outlet pipe from the ...

  • NeoBio Natural Wastewater Treatment massively deployed in Haiti (June 2010)
