  • Water reuse technology trains for medium-level water

    Wastewater is considered as stable and substantial amount of alternative water resource. In case of South Korea, it is known that 73.2 percents of supplied water discharge 16 million m3/day of treated effluent from municipal wastewater treatment plants. Calculation simply tells that 0.58 billion m3/year can be available if only 10 percent of wastewater could be reused. In this study, a pilot MBR ...

  • Water technology unlocks future oil and gas reserves

    Manangement of produced water is critical to the profitability of the oil and gas industry, and is a key focus of technology development. This wastewater stream contains a host of contaminants-from oil and grease to chemicals, microorganisms, and radioactive elements, so simple reinjection or dumping is costly or prohibited. As such, a multitude of companies are clambering to insert new ...

  • A Case for Point-of-Use RO Ultrapure Water Systems

    ULTRAPURE WATER CRITERIA - AN OVERVIEW 'Pure water' is a relative term. Practically speaking, no water, naturally occurring or treated by man, consists solely of H2O molecules.

In view of this heightened ...

  • Climate Trends and Challenges of the Energy-Water Nexus

    Most power generation facilities rely on a significant quantity of water, primarily for cooling. The most recent USGS water use survey (2005) reports that thermoelectric power accounts for approximately 41% of total freshwater withdrawals in the United States—more than any other water-use sector. Although most water use for this sector is not highly consumptive (less than 5% of national ...

  • Water technology magazine features an article on ITS president

    Lead contamination — as well as other metals that could be found in plumbing systems — presents serious risks for members in a household, especially children. Recent studies show that lead can affect children’s developing brains when it enters the body in abundance and displaces zinc and ultimately disrupts brain cell growth. For adults, approximately 80 percent of lead that is ...
