Increasing Water System Sustainability - Part 3:

Water and energy go hand in hand. It takes energy to pump, treat, heat, and cool water for boiler and cooling systems. Not only can optimizing water usage help minimize energy usage, but managing scale deposits, corrosion, and biofilms also play a role in energy demands.

Boiler and cooling water systems require substantial amounts of energy to run our modern-day world. Proper water management can help reduce and optimize these energy demands. Multiple strategies are available to help meet energy-saving objectives, including optimizing water chemistry, improved pretreatment, preventing scale deposits, reducing water waste, and equipment maintenance.

Increasing Water System Sustainability - Part 2:

Water is an ultimate sustainable resource. The hydrologic cycle works to continuously return water to nature for reuse. The challenge is to find enough usable water without overtaxing nature’s ability to replenish the local water supply. 

As a large consumer of fresh water, boiler and cooling systems are obvious targets for water conservation efforts. When properly managed, reducing water usage for these systems can have the added benefit of reducing the total costs of operation. There are multiple strategies to help meet water-saving objectives, including management and control of water chemistry, makeup water pretreatment, use of alternative water sources, and equipment maintenance.

Increasing Water System Sustainability - Part 1:

As the global population grows and the demand for water, energy, and other natural resources increase, it is important to responsibly manage and use all our resources wisely. An effective water treatment program helps maximize the life, efficiency, reliability, and safety of boiler, cooling, closed loop, and wastewater systems and minimizes water usage, energy demand, greenhouse gas emissions, and total costs.

Practical Water Management Practices to Increase Sustainability

Freshwater is an essential resource for everyday life. Although water covers 71% of the earth’s surface, only 3% is freshwater, and just 1% of this freshwater is usable. With the growing demand for water, sustainable water management is more important than ever. This means using freshwater in a way that meets current environmental and economic needs without compromising the ability to meet those needs in the future.

Improving Odor Control Scrubber Performance

“Smells like money” is what you often hear as you walk into a rendering plant, normally accompanied by the speaker taking a deep breath. To the uninitiated, the smell is nothing like the paper bills in your wallet. It is a deeper richer smell - much like the inside of a pet food bag. More than the smell of "money," it is the smell of recycling and sustainability.

The rendering industry is the original recycler, transforming waste materials from farmers, restaurants, food producers, etc. into products for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, animal feed, renewable fuels, and more. The process of converting this material into proteins and oils is accompanied by vapors that create odors, environmental concerns, health hazards, and damage to equipment and facility infrastructure.
