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: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...

Im Focus: How Do the Strongest Magnets in the Universe Form?

How do some neutron stars become the strongest magnets in the Universe? A German-British team of astrophysicists has found a possible answer to the question of how these so-called magnetars form. Researchers from Heidelberg, Garching, and Oxford used large computer simulations to demonstrate how the merger of two stars creates strong magnetic fields. If such stars explode in supernovae, magnetars could result.
