The Strongest Link in the Chain

Renewable energy—and solar energy in par­ticular—has a problem. Because it is subject to the vagaries of sunshine and wind for power generation, it is often not available when it is needed most. For those nighttime hours when the sun is not available and cloudy days when sunlight is minimal, provisions

Membranes for Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment

Membranes for Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment

When it comes to water membrane technology, there are currently four different types of membranes, three of which are frequently used for municipal water and wastewater treatment.

Four Membrane Types
The first two classifications are microfiltration and ultrafiltration. The microfiltration and ultrafiltration processes use low-pressure membranes, either immersed in aeration tanks, using

Software: Optimizing Operations

For commercial, industrial, and institutional power consumers with a heightened need for affordable, reliable, and resilient power supply, advanced microgrids can provide not only control over power sources and energy costs, but also “green” energy and peace of mind. Microgrids employ a wide range of onsite generation resources, along with
