Reclaimed Water Reduces Stress on Freshwater Supplies

04/18/2017 | Power

Meeting the needs of a planetary population expected to surpass eight billion people by 2025 is requiring more output from fewer resources. In the case of dwindling supplies of freshwater, the strain on the natural resource from economic and population growth, and climate change, can be exacerbated by other demands. One example: producing enough food for the growing population. Agriculture requires large quantities of water for irrigation and now claims close to 70% of all freshwater appropriated for human use.

Next Generation Thermal Hydrolysis Process - High Solids THP

03/23/2017 | Municipal

In short, thermal hydrolysis solves numerous challenges at a wastewater facility including increasing treatment capacity, reducing biosolids handling, increasing biogas production to reduce energy utilization, reduce operation cost for biosolids processing, produce renewable bio-fertilizer.

Effectively Using BAF Technology in Cold Climates for High Level Nitrogen, TSS Reduction

03/08/2017 | Municipal

The key distinguishing characteristic of the BAF process is that the microorganisms live in a biofilm attached to a media surface, rather than being freely suspended in the wastewater.

To The Last Drop

03/01/2017 | Mining

In the mining industry, water is used within a broad range of applications such as product handling, mineral processing, mineral extraction, dust control and amenities. But what happens if there is not a readily available supply?

Simple Yet Powerful

02/10/2017 | Municipal

New Discfilters have reduced power use at the Crown Point plant, saving the city about $70,000 a year. 

Perfect Purity

12/27/2016 | Oil & Gas

Pierre Frederic Diaz, Veolia Water Technologies, France, and Robert Wenta, Veolia water Technologies, USA, explain how the implementation of a new wastewater system helped to improve water quality and lower feedstock costs at the Petron Bataan Refinery in the Philippines.

Watering a Pearl in the Desert

12/27/2016 | Oil & Gas

Jeroen Boom and Joe Rehbein, Veolia Water Technologies, explain how a closed circuit zero liquid discharge system is used to recover, treat and reuse industrial process water at the Pearl GTL facility in Qatar.

Improving Effluent Total Nitrogen Using Advanced Dynamic Control of Aerobic/Anoxic Phasing

12/08/2016 | Municipal

As Process conditions are not constant, Fixed Phase Control cannot provide optimal process performance. Therefore, a Dynamic Phase Control strategy has been developed were phases are automatically adjusted as process conditions vary.

This paper presents results from the study of the Dynamic Phase Control strategy at the North Cary WRF, NC. The study showed that process can be significantly optimized by incorporation of Dynamic Phase Control. 

The Power of Reclaimed Water

09/09/2016 | Power

The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.

Customize Water Treatment for Oil Field and Surrounding Communities

08/10/2016 | Oil & Gas

Veolia describes treatment technologies that can be used for treatment of produced water from various geological settings in the Summer 2016 edition of Upstream Pumping.
