Water & Wastewater

Clean water technologies include advanced water purification technologies and wastewater treatment. Water purification technologies purify potable or industrial water and include advanced oxidation technologies such as ozone disinfection and ultraviolet (UV) disinfection; membrane technologies involving micro-filtration, ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis and other related separation technologies such as ion exchange and electro-dialysis; as well as technologies involving coagulation, flocculation and clarification.

Wastewater treatment technologies treat grey water or wastewater from residential and industrial consumers and include biological aerated filtration; trickling filters; membrane bioreactors; nitrification and denitrification systems; enhanced biological phosphorus removal technologies; UV disinfection; anaerobic and aerobic sludge digestion; and biosolids utilization. Other important water resources management technologies include automated systems and instrumentation that can monitor and control non-point-source pollution, point-source discharges, spills of hazardous materials, bio-toxins and contamination of water supplies; as well as products to optimize the management and operation of water and wastewater treatment and conveyance infrastructure.
