Halving the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation is “the least on-track target” of the millennium development goals (MDGs), as 2.5 billion people still lack ba
Ivy Tech Community College and WaterStep have entered into a partnership to deliver online Health and Hygiene training to prepare students to educate local communities about safe water solutions in Nairobi, Kenya.
Oil and Gas production is increasing rapidly and, by 2035, it s predicted that oil production will increase to 97 million barrels and gas production will reach 5 trillion cubic metres per year to meet growing demands.
Industrial water is the fastest growing sector of the global water market. Each industry faces substantial challenges in their business, including tighter water quality standards, regulations on wastewater discharge, and pressure on scarce water resources.
It is predicted that the number of offshore platforms installed per year will double between 2011 and 2016, representing the continued growth in the offshore oil and gas sector. Driven by increasing global energy demand and technological improvements, E&P companies are increasingly exploiting deepwater fields and investing in solutions to maximise production from mature oilfields. This report will highlight the exciting opportunities for water companies to provide solutions to meet these market developments.
The breakthrough technology to address a global need for a more energy efficient aeration solution for wastewater treatment.
The OxyMem Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) can be deployed as a fully packaged secondary treatment solution. The OxyMem MABR combines biological treatment for carbon and nitrogen removal which brings the effluent to required discharge standards, all incorporated into a compact structure.
Water will be reclaimed for re-use on sporting fields and also meets the stringent effluent discharge standards. Nereda® technology was selected as a result of achieving both lower capital and operating costs than competing tenders.
Textile Exchange, an international nonprofit organization committed to a more sustainable textile industry, is releasing the results of an international Life Cycle Assessment that demonstrates the tangible benefits of organic cotton cultivation. The life cycle study tracked organic cotton fiber production and represents worldwide global production.
