Sources from which energy can be obtained to provide heat, light, and power. Sources of energy have evolved from human and animal power to fossil fuels, uranium, water power, wind, and the Sun.

One Small Step for Bugs

One Small Step for Bugs

Like the inhabitants of the tragically fated Roman city of Pompeii, which fell victim to fallout from the Vesuvius volcano, benthic macroinvertebrate organisms in long-established communities along the river bottom received no warning of the oncoming catastrophe. They, like their human counterparts separated by millennia (and phylum), may have seen

Project Profile: Wastewater Heat Recovery

The town of Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada, had a problem. For decades, the town had ejected all of its residents’ untreated sewage directly into the waters of the Sechelt Inlet. In addition to clashing with the Sunshine Coast’s general eco-friendly culture (Sechelt is just two hours from Vancouver, British Columbia,

Sulzer Innovations at SWANA

Sulzer Innovations at SWANA

This year’s SWANApalooza conference opens in Charleston, SC on April 4th. The four-day event will feature five key solid waste industry events and includes symposia and technical sessions covering the prominent topics of the industry.

Having debuted at last year’s show in New Orleans, LA, Sulzer will once again attend the

Cleaner Energy, or a Thriving River?

Cleaner Energy, or a Thriving River?

This is a story from East Asia, but it could be happening—or in some form has already happened—just about anywhere.

We’ve long been changing the shape and character of our rivers, for what always seems at the time like the best of reasons. This article from the most recent issue of Stormwater

Hydroseeding Means Variety

Hydroseeding Means Variety

Hydroseeding work, like all outdoor jobs, can have some unpleasant aspects. The weather can be perfect and then turn miserably cold or blisteringly hot. Working in the back country, far off road, increases the chances of encountering mountain lions, rattlesnakes, or other creatures best avoided. And if it’s hot and

Dry States’ Power Landscapes

Dry States’ Power Landscapes

In one of the ways water and energy are married, hydroelectric power typically works by harnessing the energy of running or falling water to spin turbines to run generators that make electricity. Additionally, a powerful form of grid energy storage occurs when hydroelectric plants have reservoirs at different elevations. At

Improve Energy Efficiency With Integrated Building Controls

Improve Energy Efficiency With Integrated Building Controls

Author Ed Ritchie continues this series on building automation systems technology-a comprehensive approach to building energy management through the implementation of data systems, software applications and centralized computer systems. Whether these applications are adopted for improved energy efficiency or curtailing power consumption (or both), these sophisticated systems shed light on
