  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Learning how to make more effective decisions
    Choosing, designing and operating the optimal pump system are vital skills which can bring huge savings for a company. The Pump Engineer training programme was created by Pumpenfachingenieur GmbH to help engineers gain the theoretical knowledge and the operational experience which will give them those skills.
  • New directions for water well installation
    As contractors increasingly demand water products and accessories not offered by their usual distributors, Stephen Anderson, president of Merrill Manufacturing, an Iowa-based water well and water system accessory manufacturer which caters for the domestic, residential market, looks at some alternatives which simplify the installation of water wells and pumps.
