INDUSTRIAL WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Neutralizing Dissolved Solids Aeration Concerns
Neutralizing Dissolved Solids Aeration Concerns

The presence of dissolved solids presents both physical and financial challenges for aeration diffusers in any wastewater treatment operation and can be particularly problematic in high-concentration industrial and food-processing applications. Here are some warning signs, insights, and solutions for coping with conditions that can lead to excessive dissolved solids accumulation.

  • What EPA Should Consider On Their Final 'Fracking' Assessment

    Questions about if and how hydraulic fracturing activities can contaminate drinking water have been top-of-mind for many since the practice started getting widespread public attention about a decade ago. Recognizing the validity of those concerns, EPA undertook a study to see how the full ‘hydraulic fracturing water cycle’ could potentially impact our drinking water resources.

    Petrogas LLP, one of the world’s largest oil rehabilitation companies, required demineralized water for a new boiler component to its Turkmenistan refinery.

  • Recycling Wastewater from Oil And Gas Wells Poses Challenges

    Each year, the oil and gas industry produces more than 800 billion gallons of wastewater. Coupling the massive volumes of wastewater generated over the life of the well and the millions of gallons of water needed to hydraulically fracture each well, it’s easy to see that oil and gas exploration and production is just as much a water issue as it is an energy issue.

  • Water Management For Fracking Evolves

    To date, the bulk of analysis on the U.S. fracking industry has largely centered on well counts and oil and gas production.

  • EPA's Water Report: A Good But Incomplete Start

    One study cannot answer every question about water pollution risks from oil and gas drilling, nor should it be expected to. But as my colleague Nichole Saunders pointed out, the oft-quoted statement of EPA’s water study – that it found no evidence of “widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water sources”– implied to some that activities related to hydraulic fracturing had been declared risk-free.

  • Energy-Water Nexus Lessons Learned From The State Of Texas

    By making strategic choices to maximize energy-water efficiencies, we can help protect our supplies in advance of our next drought. Here are three ways that work.

  • Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead And Alive

    Water is the lifeblood of electrical power plants, whether they are water-cooled steam plants or turbine-spinning hydroelectric installations. Regardless of how the facility generates electricity, there is a growing awareness that each power plant is part of its own, unique industrial watershed — drawing water from the environment, altering its contents and temperature, releasing some to the atmosphere as steam, and returning the rest to receiving waters.

    The need for carbon monoxide equivalent (COe) monitoring in coal-fired power plants is increasing dramatically. A shift towards heat rate efficiency is occurring within the coal-fired boiler community. Increased competitiveness in electricity rates combined with indications of future limits expected by the EPA are driving the need to actively measure COe in order to improve combustion efficiency and minimize CO.
