Novel Water Technology: A New and Advanced Way of Wastewater Treatment

A Novel Water Technology was created by Indian-starting point specialists that can clean water twice as quick as financially accessible ultrafiltration layers.

As indicated by a group from the Washington University in St. Louis, more than one of every 10 individuals on the planet need essential drinking water, and by 2025, half of the total populace will live in water-focused on regions.

The group driven by Srikanth Singamaneni, Professor at … [more…]

Chart: Earthquakes in Heart of Texas Oil Country Spur Water Crackdown

(Bloomberg) — Texas is considering new restrictions on how shale explorers dispose of wastewater from oil drilling as earthquakes rattle the largest oil-producing American state.

The new rules would target how much and at what pressure briny water that emerges from oil wells is injected back into the ground, Jared Craighead, chief of staff for the Texas Railroad Commission, … [more…]

BY PAULA GARDNER AND GARRET ELLISON

Michigan businesses are discharging high levels of PFAS that move into the state’s waterways on a daily basis.

An MLive investigation found that manufacturing sources are sending one version of the "forever chemicals" at up to 20,000 times the allowed amount into wastewater systems that discharge it into the state’s lakes, rivers and, ultimately, threatening drinking water supplies for millions of people.

That comes … [more…]
