Berson’s InLine+ series UV water disinfection systems are now fully validated in accordance with the USEPA UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (UVDGM).
Black & Veatch has announced that the first phase of the Sembcorp Changi NEWater Plant (SCNP) in Singapore was completed on schedule. The plant uses the main advanced water treatment process steps of micro-filtration (MF), reverse osmosis (RO) and ultraviolet radiation to produce NEWater, high-grade reclaimed water. When completed in 2010, the plant will supply 15% of Singapore’s current water needs.
BHP Billiton, as one of Western Australia's big water users, has a target of 10% potable water saving documented into its environmental policy and sustainable growth strategies. The new administration and maintenance facility at Port Hedland's Finucane Island is part of BHP Billiton's Western Australian Rapid Growths Project (RGP4).
In the face of ever-increasing energy costs, many Australian and New Zealand manufacturers and service providers are using the Dimpleflo Modular Heat Exchangers to recover energy from any warm or hot product or effluent.
Enough sewage to fill 16 Olympic-sized swimming pools is processed each day by Yarra Valley Water treatment plants dotted around Melbourne. And because reliability is everything when it comes to sewage, it seems strange at first that many of the 17 Hurll Nu-Way Aerzen blowers at the front line of treatment are at least 10 years old, with some nearing 30 years of service.
Over the past eight months, Bathurst Regional Council has been conducting a trial of a new technology that promises to offer significant improvements in energy consumption and the production of biosolids from sewage treatment.
Continued population growth, droughts and limited water storage capacity are placing ever increasing pressure on Australian water supplies. One of the responses to this pressure has been increased use of recycled water. However, increased use has to be balanced against protection of public health; the greatest risk is from enteric microorganisms.
An effluent purification technology that helps municipal, commercial and industrial users to recycle sewage as service water is being introduced to Australia by Elmco Water Technologies-AJM Environmental Services (EWT-AJM).
The in situ measurement of ammonium and nitrate is now possible with the ISEmax CAS40. The robust inline probe is claimed to be able to reduce the energy costs associated with aeration systems in nitrification and denitrification processes in wastewater treatment.
Atlas Copco and ITT Corporation have entered into a worldwide strategic alliance, providing significant energy-saving solutions for municipal wastewater treatment plants.
The Waste and Supervisory Process (WaSP) is used for taking care of tankered liquid waste. It allows users to receive and process any liquid waste efficiently and safely while collecting accurate volumetric data and other details for correct billing.
The Casella 12 m Dimpleflo heat exchanger is a cost-effective solution for applications with limited space requirements. The units are built with 12 m long tubing, therefore fewer bends are needed, resulting in a 30% beneficial saving. Increased performance due to its length and configuration has also provided benefits.
