Wastewater: “wastewater treatment as a water use because it is so interconnected with the other uses of water. Much of the water used by homes, industries, and businesses must be treated before it is released back to the environment. “
Technology Solution Agua Nueva
Lower cost and more efficient
Better quality of the water treated
It uses generation of ultra-filtering and microfiltering membranes
Biological treatment of wastewater to be able to use for watering
Wastewater processing companies
Provide to the farmlands throughout the United States
It can help water shortages
Redirect the water previously used for irrigation to areas in need of water supply
Can reduce the water bill for the residence and farmland for the surrounding areas
1) Sustainability Problem: Water, waste, emissions, safety and health
An average brewery uses 7 to 10 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of beer1. Water is used as both an ingredient in beer and in its production, and wastewater is produced as a result of operations. Both the water intensity of production and the wastewater associated with it pose sustainability questions and concerns.
Distributed wastewater treatment and resource recovery solutions provider Cambrian is partnering with Florida’s second oldest operational brewery, The Florida Brewery, to deploy Cambrian’s BlueCycle MBR technology. The technology is intended to replace the need for high-strength wastewater disposal systems, and to reduce CO2 output by ~254 metric tons per year. There are also anticipated cost savings associated with the technology.
BlueCycle MBR is an aerobic digester that removes water pollutants from the wastewater and its use facilitates water reuse compliant with Title 22 requirements (water recycling regulations).
Anheuser-Busch, Dr. Pepper, and Anchor Brewing Company are among other companies that are using Cambrian’s water reuse solutions.
The Florida Brewery (operational team)
Other beverage companies (both those that use these technologies and those that do not)
Regulatory bodies (to ensure compliance with Title 22 and other legislation)
4) The First Three Steps in Deploying This Technology
Assess the impact of the technology at The Florida Brewery
Market the cost savings and sustainability benefits the technology provides to other beverage companies
Conduct regulatory research to ensure the product is still compliant with the requisite legislation
Storm water is one of the main causes of pollution in cities. All the water runoff that is produced accumulates waste and pollutants throughout the city and is finally poured into rivers and water bodies, affecting environments and natural resources that people depend on.
The BaySeparator is a water treatment system that treats runoff throughout entire storms, no matter their intensity and duration.
In the following link it is explained how it works with different storm intensities:
BaySaver Techonogies Inc. is a company that designs and manufactures stormwater treatment products. They created the BaySeparator in order to improve older systems that treated only the first flush of runoff. The idea was to create a new technology able to treat the stormwater throughout the entire storm.
