Working for A Solution to Discharge Limits
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit program seeks to reduce the amount of water pollution to surface waters. This is accomplished by regulating point sources such as pipes or man-made ditches that discharge pollutants into public waters. In the summer of 2005, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) began to issue increasingly stringent discharge regulations to ethanol plants throughout the state in response to federal guidelines. These new regulations included reduced maximum concentrations for iron discharged in the receiving water stream.View project
Cooling Tower Toad Significantly Reduces Corrosion During LayUp
Every year the cooling system for an industrial plant providing comfort cooling was shut down and frained for the winter months. Historically, during this shut down period the cooling water piping and equipment would experience severe corrosion. During start-up of the cooling system the next spring, iron flakes would peel off the piping plugging strainers and heat transfer equipment. This would interfere with the efficiency of the production process and cause an increase in maintenance.View project
First Dry Grind Zero Liquid Discharge Facility in U.S.
In the spring of 2006, Pacific Ethanol, Incorporated started their dry grind ethanol plant in Madera, California. One of the most unique features of this start-up was that it was the first ethanol plant in the country to be designed and operated with no liquid discharge to the environment. The process that allows for this environmentally friendly system was developed by U.S. Water.View project
