  • Advanced hollow fiber UF membranes improve performance in tertiary water treatment
    Growing global demand for clean water and increasing environmental concerns make membrane filtration the technology of choice for municipalities and industries seeking to reuse wastewater and reduce their water footprint. But how is the technology developing in this field?
  • Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste
    One of the most readily-available and viable solutions to help address the challenge of our growing energy needs is Energy-from-Waste (EfW) – which has the potential to take a multitude of waste streams (such as municipal solid waste) and convert them into energy. We look at how modern techniques can make the technology more efficient.

Features

  • Intelligent future for wastewater pumping Intelligent future for wastewater pumping
    Tomorrow’s wastewater pumping stations will require more functionality, reliability and advanced data communication. This white paper examines the substantial technological advances, functionality, reduced asset management and the reduction in lifecycle costs that integrated intelligence in wastewater pumping delivers.
  • Eco solution increases fish rehabilitation
    The Bull Run Watershed is the primary drinking water supply for the City of Portland in the US. It also plays an important role in supporting the larger aquatic ecosystem of the Sandy and Lower Columbia rivers where, due to warm summer water temperatures, some of the fish species have recently been in significant decline.
  • Pumping station improves port drainage
    The Port of Immingham in the UK is a huge site and surface water build up has always been removed by a tidal flap (valve) that drained directly into the Humber Estuary. However, recurrent blockages had port engineers searching for an alternative.
  • Flood-hit residents fight back against the elements
    December sees the first anniversary of floods which devastated a Yorkshire town in the north of the UK. Tadcaster suffered its worst floods on record in 2015 and homes and businesses were damaged and destroyed. This winter the townspeople are fighting back against the elements with specialist water pumps.
