By: Khalid Shaikh Mon, 29 Mar 2010 06:52:53 +0000 This article reflects an important fact that often gets ignored as people involved in the design / selection of wastewater plants are more concerned about the process / technology often forgetting the important fact that energy is a very precious resource & every kWhr of energy consumed is causing irreversible harm to our planet and the fragile ecosystem of our planet.

But the way humanity today is orienting itself as consumers of goods / commodities & with the ever growing population especially in the developing world, finding ways & means of reducing carbon footprint of wastewater plants is not an option any more.

At Atlas Copco, we are trying to find new ways & means of reducing energy consumption of our compressed air blowers that are used extensively for aeration of wastewater.

The link to this below video on youtube throws more light on the new energy efficient range of ZS blowers that should soon become an industry standard in wastewater treatment. 2E

Excellent information regards water efficeincy and a WaterFootprint calculator which is cool

We cannot, using the technique of discovery of a new or lost tribe of people be to blame for their lack of 100% clean drinking water. Many reason are to blame – over consumption and pollution are two.
As this is a never-ending WWD, TAP installation charity project(s).
With stale historical educated leaders such as the UN, WHO and NGO’s we can never END this STALEMATE.
A new solution is required an evolution is required using technological advancement which are sustainable.
Firstly absorb the following presentation @ also twitter & facebook – then without blockage of the pipes help to implement, ASAP.
The food monopoly gaints with their bottled drinks are limiting our options…NO LONGER. N.W.O.- New WATER Ordered.

By: Bill Wed, 24 Mar 2010 03:10:56 +0000 There are some thought provoking ideas here – though exactly HOW you can generate energy from waste water and HOW you extract useeful chemicals and materials remains to be seen. Unfortunately, at the moment, these ideas are posited in a very theoretical way which the average person like myself and or the average government officer/politician responsible for approving and building these new generation plants would not be able to comprehend. I urge the author, if he truly understands how to build these new generation waste water plants, to stop talkig about it and BUILD a real demonstration plant which could then be used as the basis for making poeple like myself and others fully comprehend HOW this would be done. I would also urge him to make clear on what SCALE these been to be built. A small scale that could be replicated erlatively cheaply in villages throughout the developing world (rather than large cities like Amman) would of course be preferable.

It is all very well to make “What if” statements, but the proof of the pudding is in the (making and the) eating. Please take this to the next PRACTICAL step!
