Water Treatment

Industrial Filtration Market to Register Buoyant Growth by 2021

Water purification is gaining prominence due to the shrinking water resources across the world and increasing wastewater disposal costs. Owing to the growing water crisis and the importance of treating the water for reuse, the demand for wastewater treatment technologies is on the rise. 

Wastewater Treatment

Biological Approach for the Effluent Treatment of Paper Boards

Water is an essential raw material for manufacturing of paper boards, and effluent treatment is critical part of this process. Wastewater is characterized by extreme quantities of pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), total suspended solids (TSS), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and chemical oxygen demand (COD). 

Ultrafiltration Occupies an Established Position In Water Treatment

Although water seems to be abundant on our planet, the availability of fresh water is fast becoming an issue. Membrane filtration has always held the potential of being able to provide ample fresh water from non-potable sources, be it surface water, seawater or even wastewater. 

Desalination

Global Nano Silver Market Set for Growth

Nano filtration is a technique that has prospered over the past few years. According to Lenntech, Nano filtration is mainly applied in drinking water purification process steps, such as water softening, decoloring and micro pollutant removal. 

Advancing Clean-Energy Desalination: In the Limelight

The global desalination market has grown significantly in the past few years, with the largest plants coming on line in the Middle East. According to the 2016-2017 IDA Yearbook published by Global Water Intelligence, the period June 2015 to June 2016 saw an increase of 3.7 million m3/d of desalination

Water Policies, Regulation and Programs In South Africa

This section introduces water sector-related regulatory frameworks and public sector activities. These are expected to inform or affect investment decisions made by potential investors and businesses in the sector. Managing water resources involves contributions from various stakeholders at different points along the value chain. The DWS formulates and implements policies to regulate the water sector and provides strategies for sector support. It does this by operating across the water value chain as a national government entity. However, the DWS does not execute all functions. In line with the National Water Act (Act 36 of 1998), some functions are delegated to appropriate sector institutions, such as CMA.

Protection & Monitoring of Water Bodies Have a Long Tradition in Austria

Originally, the term water quality was defined as the chemical, physical and also hygienic status of the groundwater (drinking water) and the surface waters. Again and again particularly rivers and lakes have been contaminated by wastewaters discharged. For the protection of waters e.g. material pollution by nutrients
