    • Power Plants, Cooling Towers & Chlorination - Preventing Biofouling
      Cooling water towers, especially during higher temperatures, are susceptible to the growth of algae and slime.
    • Stay Cool: Study Your Chemistry?
      A cooling tower is something most plant personnel take for granted. The tower system produces a steady flow of plant water that’s continuously recycled with a minimum amount of bother and expense.
    • Water Investments: Demand Begins to Outstrip Supply
      Investor interest in the water industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds, but the availability of attractive investment vehicles continue to decline - as more and more of the publicly traded water companies are snapped up by well-heeled and hungry corporate acquirers.
    • Zero-Sludge Treatment of Industrial Wastewater By Ken Norcross
      Industrial wastewater treatment is an unusual engineering challenge. Where else in industry are the designers asked to provide a process that will produce a very high level of efficiency and reliability while being given an unpredictable, inconsistent and highly variable raw material with which to work? This conundrum is further compounded if, as is often the case, the waste is highly concentrated, high in salts or hot.
