  • Sustainable Performance Isn’t About Preventing All Accidents; It’s About Managing the Ability to Adapt and Learn

    With an increasing awareness of the importance of safety, we are seeing a growing trend of zero accident goals. Inherently, this is a laudable moral goal and if we truly value people in organizations, then our intentions should indeed point to a goal of not harming people during operational work. Protecting people is a good thing, but one of the problems with “zero goals” is the lack ...

  • BM Respirometry benefits for activated sludge process management, research and training

    A biological process controlled by non-biological measurements? All treatment plant efficiencies are geared to the waste that they receive. The microorganisms found in the waste need food and oxygen to survive, the food is provided as soluble organic carbon in the waste stream and the oxygen is obtained through the aeration process in the treatment plant. Once a treatment plant ...

  • 12 strategies for moving from water scarcity to abundance

    How did a country that’s 60 percent desert achieve water security? In about 10 years, beginning shortly after the new century, Israel went from scarcity of water and fear of drought to abundance and independence from climate conditions. This dramatic change was made possible by the 70 years that preceded it in which a cadre of often brilliant engineers, scientists and ...

  • Artificial neural network modeling of the effluent quality index for municipal wastewater treatment plants using quality variables: south of Tehran wastewater treatment plant

    Using treated wastewater could be a realistic solution for the scarcity of fresh water in Iran; therefore, effluent quality evaluation is an essential task. In the present study, the effluent quality index (EQI) for south of Tehran municipal wastewater treatment plant was found considering eight quality parameters and sub-index formulae method. Further, with the help of an artificial neural ...

  • SWAT meta-modeling as support of the management scenario analysis in large watersheds

    In the last two decades, numerous models and modeling techniques have been developed to simulate nonpoint source pollution effects. Most models simulate the hydrological, chemical, and physical processes involved in the entrainment and transport of sediment, nutrients, and pesticides. Very often these models require a distributed modeling approach and are limited in scope by the requirement of ...
