Mining wastewater treatment

Envirogen has published a new whitepaper describing the use of its ‘fixed-film fluidized bed reactor’ (FBR) technology for the treatment of selenium-containing coal mining wastewaters. The report details the features of the company’s FBR technology that make it ideally suited for selenium and nitrate treatment in the coal mining industry. It describes the design and installation of systems with capital, operating and lifecycle costs that are significantly lower than competitive fixed-film biological systems – particularly packed bed bioreactors.

Pipe flow calculator

CertainTeed has developed a new online pipe flow calculator. The calculator compares PVC and HDPE pipe across several different factors that influence the cost of owning and operating a water distribution network. These factors include pipeline material cost, installation cost, pipe flow, pressure, pumping energy requirements and pumping energy costs. The pumping energy costs are calculated, by state, based on electrical rates provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, to determine the net present value of a water distribution system’s future energy consumption.
