A review of the ‘Rethink Reuse’ issue

Through April and the beginning of May, the Water Technology team took advantage of many great opportunities to leave the office and meet readers.

Through April and the beginning of May, the Water Technology team took advantage of many great opportunities to leave the office and meet readers. We also talked with clients who help us provide our magazine and digital content to our audience. Without their advertisements, we could not bring you this magazine throughout the year, so we are grateful for their support. We also visited manufacturing facilities, including Siemens in Alpharetta, Georgia, and Bell & Gossett outside Chicago. The work they do to produce pumps, valves, controls and other technology helps keep the process industries producing much-needed products.

While at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, the themes of efficiency and equipment reliability continued. We also talked with many people about the increased need to reuse water in industrial processes. This topic is detailed in the May/June issue’s cover series “Rethink Reuse.” With increased regulations and operations in water scarce areas, reuse, once an optional ideal is becoming an essential practice.

We also cover activated carbon filtration options in a special report of the May/June issue. Both powder and granulated activated carbon can be used to remove contaminants from wastewater streams so that the water can be safely discharged or reused.

To use water in an industrial process, it must first get to the process. In the “Storage & Movement” section, transporting water within a National Football League stadium and pumping water across Chinese mountains for use in power generation are both featured.

Our teams also attended the American Water Works Association Annual Conference and Exhibition and the Electrical Apparatus Service Association Convention.
