A combination of biotechnologies has been used to design sensors that can detect the presence of pathogenic organisms or chemical contamination in water, food, industrial or point-of-care situations in less than six hours.
Australia’s Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) and the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK) have joined forces on research and training for contamination risk assessment and clean-up.
Sumitomo has released a range of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) membranes designed for water microfiltration and sewage treatment. The MBR (membrane bioreactor) module is suitable for water purification applications such as recycling water for farming and gardening, recycled drinking water, sewage wastewater treatment and recycled industrial water.
Biolytix has been announced as the biggest mover on the â€˜Q400 Listâ€™ of Queenslandâ€™s leading private companies, surging past 95 other businesses.
Over the 2005/2006 Christmas school holiday break, GBG successfully installed the KEWT system at the Greenbank Preschool and Greenbank State School site
South East Water's experience with pressure sewer system (PSS) has been extremely positive, particularly in a backlog sewerage environment where it results in a significant reduction in disturbance to the local community and environment
Australian researchers at the Advanced Wastewater Management Centre will receive extra backing from the International Science Linkages fund for the development of a more efficient method of processing wastewater.
New Zealand's leading dairy cooperative, Fonterra has announced a new environmental policy that introduces tough measures against farmers who don't comply with environment standards in the management of effluent, with the ultimate sanction of not collecting farm milk.
EBCRC researchers at the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) have developed a process where high-strength wastewater is turned into valuable products
If your business produces tradewaste, then you have a legal obligation to get Sydney Water's permission (usually a permit) to discharge it to the sewer, and Sydney Water will charge for the amount and type of tradewaste discharged to the sewerage system
Becker products are used in the construction of vacuum sewer collection systems. They can be used as an alternative to gravity systems as they do not rely on the natural gradient for the transportation of sewerage. They offer an odour-free environment, with the ability to transport effluent uphill, and use less water for flushing.
Optioneer is a 3D modelling software tool that allows users to 'virtually' design, configure and automatically cost multiple options for a water or wastewater treatment plant at the concept design phase. It can produce process flow diagrams (PFDs) on screen using template icons for more than 100 pieces of plant and equipment. Smart data associated with the PFD icons automatically convey dimensions and shape to the 3D images, and each piece of equipment can be 'dragged' and located into the 3D environment. The process of cutting 3D shapes and sizes into the 3D topography is automatic, as is the calculation of cut and fill volumes for preliminary construction and final trim earthworks surfaces.
