Siemens to showcase solutions to wastewater treatment challenges at WEFTEC.11

07.10.2011
With time, wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) parts wear out, regulatory requirements tighten, and operational costs rise.
Water professionals seeking solutions to these and other issues will converge at WEFTEC.11, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California, USA from October 15 through 19. Solutions to some of the industry's toughest wastewater treatment challenges will be displayed at the Siemens booth. In addition to helping get new plants up and running, Siemens' wastewater systems and solutions also enable aging plants to extend product lifecycle, maximize efficiency, reduce costs, and meet ongoing regulations.

At this year's WEFTEC, Siemens will focus on eight main topics: clarification; biological processes; filtration; anaerobic digestion; biosolids management; disinfection; integrated automation and controls; and upgrades, rehab, retrofit and cost-saving services. A variety of products and services aim to reduce long-term lifecycle costs, energy consumption and biosolids disposal costs through process technology and controls in WWTPs.

Through its BioFlowsheet+ Solutions biological process optimization program, the company can integrate low energy biological processes, turbocompressors, variable frequency drive technology and controls to save energy. Siemens can also provide innovative biosolids reduction, composting, and incineration technologies to minimize biosolids production and methane gas output.

Experts will also be on-hand to discuss performance contracting, which is an ideal option for projects that reduce energy use or lower biosolids disposal costs. Finally, its Link2Site Flex and Totally Integrated Water control systems allow Siemens to integrate all processes under a unified, easy-to-operate control system that can help plants save on long-term lifecycle costs and make the whole process more efficient.

Also in the booth, Siemens will showcase a number of retrofit, aftermarket, and field services that help communities replace, upgrade, and start up facilities with reliable and updated original quality equipment enhanced to meet today's performance, space, and operating excellence needs. For instance, Siemens' retrofit and rehabilitation turnkey services involve conducting a comprehensive review of the client's water treatment equipment and controls, as well as current operating procedures and data; Siemens then provides a detailed report with recommendations for improving the treatment system.

The company also offers preventative maintenance and service contracts for membrane systems, which extend equipment life, make operations more efficient, and reduce direct labor costs. To alleviate capacity issues, Siemens can provide mobile operating service equipment to maintain required output rates during installation operations. And through its extensive service branch network, Siemens provides aftermarket services to replace and upgrade WWTPs, without interrupting water supply and operations.

Siemens also helps engineers and communities find the best solutions to meet regulatory, capacity, and reuse challenges. The company's space-efficient equipment requires minimal operator attention and allows plants to improve treatment or expand capacity within existing plant boundaries. Siemens' Full-Service Odor Control Program approach can help wastewater collection and treatment facilities achieve adequate odor control and reduce corrosion in their infrastructure for the lowest lifecycle cost, while meeting tough odor control requirements. The company's new SCU Trace Metal Removal Media is capable of removing trace levels of metals such as copper, zinc, lead, mercury, cadmium, trivalent chromium, nickel and other transition metals from complex wastewaters and groundwater, to ppb/ppt levels that cannot be achieved with standard ion-exchange resins.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
