Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-reﬁning plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product puriﬁcation needs, ﬁnd alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and proﬁtably.
The wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of the Avebe cooperative consists of several pumping stations equipped with stainless steel pumps type Scanpump, built in 1996.
The Coors Brewery facility in Golden, Colorado utilizes the Duperon® FlexRake® FPFS to treat the process influent resulting from their brewing operation.
Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.
At Fluence, we have more than 30 years of experience in the design, construction, and operation of waste-to-energy plants for a wide range of industrial and municipal clients. Our proprietary anaerobic treatment technologies process wastewater and sludge to produce biogas, which can be used to produce electricity and thermal energy, or which can be purified to produce biomethane for injection into the grid.
L'eau Claire upflow filters offer an alternative to conventional water clarifiers for removing suspended solids and colloidal material such as silica. Despite the influent loading, this cost-effective filtration process removes 98% of particulates ≥2 microns without the use of clarifiers, flocculation, sedimentation, dry chemical addition or mixers. Watch the video to see how it works.
A hospital had been pumping their wastewater with a submersible pump for years. But after seeing the benefits of the S&L Above Grade Wet Well Mounted Pump Station, they quickly saw the benefits - easier and safer maintenance, higher efficiency, long pump life, and more. Hear from the operator himself to learn why the hospital now prefers S&L's EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Station.
This video gives an introduction and overview of the unique features and benefits of the new Aquafine OptiVenn UV Disinfection system.
Three thousand litres of water — that is the amount needed to produce the food each British person eats every day. This is according to a new study into the “water footprint” of diets in Western Europe, conducted by the European Commission and published in Nature Sustainability.
Industrial companies need reliable water treatment technology, since failure of a water system may result in downtime for production, with significant financial impacts. Ultraviolet (UV) technology is used for water treatment in various industries such as microelectronics, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and many other industry segments.
The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (GLSD) in North Andover, MA, was one of 28 organizations nationwide to be honored for an innovative water or wastewater project in the most recent PISCES Recognition Program sponsored by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). PISCES stands for Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success.
By harvesting heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) condensate, industrial operations can take advantage of a cool, convenient source of clean water.
As focus on resource recovery intensifies, food and beverage operations are under a particularly large microscope. An anaerobic digester designed for the food and beverage industry can create value out of the space’s unique wastewater.
If you’ve ever looked into the ice cream freezers at your local grocery store you can imagine all the different ingredients you’d find at the ice cream factory: cream, sugar, chocolate, fruit, nuts, milk, syrups, and so on.
Anaerobic digestion is a practical and efficient technology to utilize considerable amounts of organic waste from intensive animal production and food processing and wastage during distribution/consumption, municipal waste, etc. to produce methane gas for electricity generation, local/process heating, and direct injection into the gas supply network.
Wastewater treatment operations are beginning to embrace the power of automation. How can it help? And how is it implemented?
Electricity is a major cost for industry operations, and the cost of meeting environmental regulations is right up there as well. At the same time, industries are compelled to improve sustainability and lower their carbon footprints.
Technologies which could transform the shape of the water industry of the future will be on show at the fifth BlueTech Forum, to be held in San Francisco.
Wineries and vineyards face some added environmental and economic challenges to properly treat and dispose of wastewater. Proper treatment and disposal can be costly and there are very strict regulations that must be followed.
Not all water treatment needs are the same. That’s why it’s imperative to work with those that understand the subtle differences that make each industry unique. For food and beverage companies, that means aligning with KLa Systems, a company focused on oxygen transfer with a track record of innovation in jet aeration and mixing.
With over 1,000 manufacturing sites in more than 200 countries, Coca-Cola Company knows a thing or two about water. And much of that knowledge is housed in Paul Bowen’s organization.
“Bioelectrochemistry” is a mouthful, but it’s a word you should get familiar with if your goal is sustainable, energy-efficient industrial wastewater treatment.
