The island of Anguilla in the British West Indies is one of the northernmost Leeward Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Like many Caribbean islands, tourism is its main industry, with more than 100,000 visitors each year.

In 2007, Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins organization began constructing Target Field, an approximately 40,000-seat stadium located in the heart of Minneapolis. The organization’s goal was to make it a LEED-certified professional sports venue, which would recognize its sustainable building strategies and practices.

The Reo-Pure LP3 Series of light commercial RO systems is the next generation of the Reo-Pure LP-ES series. This new design offers even lower energy consumption, added safety features, and the same high production capabilities, all inside a single compact system. The systems are fully assembled, factory tested and sure to provide years of trouble-free operation with quick and easy maintenance. The LP3 series has capacities ranging from 50 to 1,750 gpd.
The technology was selected based on permeate quality, energy consumption and chemical consumption compared with competitive products
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) installed its Puron HF ultrafiltration (UF) modules at a major steel mill in Inner Mongolia, China. The system is the first large application of the product in the metals industry, with a capacity of 57,600 cu meters per day (15.2 million gal per day).
Residential drinking water treatment unit products have many standards and protocols available to companies to demonstrate that their products have been tested and certified to verify that the materials that come into contact with drinking water are not harmful, the products are structurally sound and the performance reduction claims are accurate. Commercial products were seemingly left in the dust, however, and end users do not have a significant amount of guidance within the standards to make the same distinctions about these larger systems.
Testing & certification options for commercial water treatment systems
On April 11, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its 2014 to 2018 Strategic Plan, with goals that include protecting U.S. waters, ensuring the safety of chemicals, and protecting human health and the environment through enhanced compliance activities.
Green chemicals play a role in water treatment & reuse applications
Anyone who owns an aquarium knows how difficult it is to maintain water quality at a consistently high level. The principle “the larger the tank, the more stable the water values,” depends on the number and size of the tank’s inhabitants. When those inhabitants are dolphins, as at the Nuremberg Zoo, located in the Nuremberg Reichswald southeast of Nuremberg, Germany, the water treatment requirements are particularly challenging.

The High Output (HO) line of UV water treatment systems is designed for commercial and industrial applications. These products are intended for disinfection, ozone destruction and total organic carbon reduction, and are available in flow rates from 30 to 800 gpm. Each system is specifically engineered to provide optimized flow and retention time to effectively reduce bacteria by up to 99.9%. Dosage levels of 30,000 µw seconds per sq cm and higher at rated flow provide effective UV treatment.
The Coyote UV Series is an in-house engineered design manufactured in the U.S. and specifically intended for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. Its modular design provides for fast turnaround times. These products are available in flow rates from 40 to 150 gpm for clear freshwater and can be used for disinfection, ozone destruction or TOC reduction.
The validated UNLV 800-W amalgam lamp provides a high dose of UV light with the lowest possible electrical connection. The lamps are up to three times more efficient than medium-pressure lamps. They can be used for agriculture, landscaping, golf courses, urinal flushing and dust suppression, as well as aquifer storage.
