New method simultaneously monitors clumps and the mixing intensity in a single step
Water is a vital resource, and clean water is a necessity. Texas A&M University researchers have developed a new technique to monitor one of the key processes of purifying water in real time. Raw water contains microscopic pathogens that are too small to remove during water and wastewater ...
Creates Transformative Platform to Address World’s Most Critical Water Challenges
Xylem Inc. and Evoqua announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Xylem will acquire Evoqua in an all-stock transaction that reflects an implied enterprise value of approximately $7.5 billion. As water risks rise in global importance, this transaction unites two companies ...
Just like humans, wastewater treatment plants can get sick, due to viral attacks. Now, new research from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, reveals the implications for the surrounding environment in case the plant catches a cold. The efficient running of wastewater treatment plants is an ...
Ajoint research group led by Prof. SUN Chenglin, Porf. WEI Huangzhao andProf. LI Rengui from theDalian Institute of Chemical Physics(DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) hasdeveloped a new coupling strategy of photocatalytic water oxidation and catalytic wet peroxide oxidation ...
The process reducing the volume of wastewater by 90%
A research team of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev environmental scientists has developed a circular process for eliminating the risk posed by phosphoric acid plant wastewater. The process turns the environmentally toxic wastewater into clean water while recovering valuable acids. Phosphoric ...
Novel membrane shows high filtering effects
Dispersion paints are mostly used in households for painting walls and ceilings. An interdisciplinary research team from the University of Bayreuth has now analysed the chemical composition of two typical dispersion paints and discovered a large number of solid particles in them which are only a ...
Using common reagents in heated water, chemists can ‘behead’ and break down PFAS, leaving only harmless compounds
If you’re despairing at recent reports that Earth’s water sources have been thoroughly infested with hazardous human-made chemicals called PFAS that can last for thousands of years, making even rainwater unsafe to drink, there’s a spot of good news. Chemists at UCLA and Northwestern University ...
North Carolina State University researchers have demonstrated that a synthetic polymer can remove certain dyes from water, and that the polymer can be recovered and reused. The findings offer a new potential method for cleaning wastewater after use by textiles, cosmetics or other ...
New treatment for harmful aldehydes in wastewater
Platinum has set a new “gold standard” in jewelry, and now it’s about to upscale the quality of your water. As wastewater treatment for potable – drinkable – reuse becomes a more viable and popular option to address water shortages, the question of what harmful byproducts might form in treatment ...
The use of sulfite and iodide under ultraviolet light can destroy PFAS in water in a few hours
Once dubbed “forever chemicals,” per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, might be in the market for a new nickname. That’s because adding iodide to a water treatment reactor that uses ultraviolet (UV) light and sulfite destroys up to 90% of carbon-fluorine atoms in PFAS forever chemicals in ...
