Process Effectively Strips Hydrogen Sulfide Gas From Wastewater

Hydrogen sulfide is a common component in wastewater treatment plant off-gases (e.g., biogas) and waste gases from certain industrial processes. It is highly toxic and odorous. Therefore, its release into the atmosphere is regulated. In addition, it is very corrosive, which can result in costly damage to equipment and piping systems used in biogas handling. Several technologies exist for removing H2S from gas streams, but many suffer from drawbacks such as insufficient removals, complexity or high cost.

Ceramic Filters: The Fight Against Bacteria, Viruses & Protozoa

How can someone protect himself from consuming water contaminated with Cryptosporidium or other microorganisms? One durable and competitively priced option is ceramic filters.Until recently, the United States was essentially a carbon filter market, in that chlorine, dirt, foul taste and odor were thought to be the only problems with drinking water. With the advent of the Cryptosporidium parvum outbreak in Milwaukee in 1993, the general public and water treatment dealers started to question the quality of municipally treated water and private wells.
