Biofiltration For Air Pollution Control
The number-one environmental threat to public health, air pollution remains a pressing problem-made even more complicated by the massive quantity and diversity of air pollution sources.
Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Done properly, biofiltration works at a reasonable cost-utilizing inexpensive components, without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products.
Firmly established in Europe, biofiltration techniques are being increasingly applied in North America: Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control offers the necessary knowledge to "do it right."
How To Build A Water Purification & Filtration Services Business (special Editio
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to launch and run a successful business venture.
The objective of this research was to investigate the clogging process in riverbank filtration (RBF) systems and identify factors significant to yield. Specific objectives included the following:
High-capacity RBF systems have been constructed in a wide range of hydrogeologic settings, and data from these sites provide insight to capacity-limiting factors in RBF systems. Field data for temperature, head, and riverbed flux rates into the riverbed were collected at Louisville, allowing estimates of riverbed hydraulic conductivity to be calculated as a function of distance from the well. These data indicated variations in riverbed hydraulic conductivity resulting from riverbed clogging and the development of unsaturated conditions. The impact of temperature on specific capacity was evaluated at four sites where adequate operating data were available. Wide variations in water viscosity associated with temperature resulted in the doubling of specific capacity from winter to summer, indicating that the rated capacity of RBF systems should be considered as a range between coldest and warmest water conditions. Information from this project was summarized into a set of recommendations for utilities considering the design of an RBF system for future water supply.
- Evaluate commonly available stream and aquifer characteristics from RBF systems with regards to system yield
- Collect data from the RBF system in Louisville and apply the information to clogging theory
- Provide recommendations regarding the design of future RBF systems with regards to riverbed clogging
- Data from the participating sites were compiled to allow easy comparison to future RBF sites.
