What’s in our oceans?

What’s under the waves? So much of our planet is under water (oceans cover 71 per cent of the earth’s surface). While, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Centre reports the globe holds approximately 321,003,271 cubic miles of water. So, with so much water covering our planet, have you ever wondered what’s under the waves? Life – but not as we know it! We know that there are millions of different sea life species in the ocean, many still undiscovered. There are also around 4,000 species of coral reef fish found across the globe — that’s close to a quarter of all of the world’s marine fish species—though be aware that a millilitre of ocean water contains close to 1 million bacteria and 10 million viruses. Depths and sights … The earth’s

Hyperboloid Mixers Stand Out With Their Excellent Durability And Energy Efficiency

The joint wastewater association Staufener Bucht, Germany, has placed its trust in the hyperboloid mixing technology of INVENT Umwelt- und Verfahrenstechnik AG. After 21 years in operation, the association has made the decision to replace the 15 HYPERCLASSIC® mixers of the second generation with even more energy efficient mixers of the seventh generation. A resolution was made in Bad Kronzingen in 1967 to clean and treat the wastewater of 24 communities as a joint operation at a central location. This marked the launch of the powerful central wastewater treatment plant (wwtp) named Staufener Bucht. It has been in operation as a community wwtp since 1978. When the population number grew and the load limit was reached, the association expanded the wwtp in 1993. These days, it treats
