WASTE WATER TREATMENT

Introduction To Waste Water Treatment

Introducing a novel technology that can “transform” contaminated, polluted, and even environmentally toxic water into an easier to handle, higher quality water.

This novel technology is extraordinarily versatile and is capable of reducing or eliminating the Following:

How Our Technology Works:


Doing What Nature Does…Only a Million Times Faster


The reduction of these Bio-Hazardous, Chemically Hazardous materials from the base water dramatically reduces or eliminates the load on industrial or municipal wastewater treatment plants and improves the quality of life for millions of people worldwide. This same technology provides an economic alternative to industrial water users by enabling the recycling of water within their processes before release into the wastewater treatment systems. In many of these cases this water may now be agriculturally safe for irrigation purposes or usable in industry in concrete or the making of cement block for example, all while reducing unnecessary loading of municipal wastewater treatment facilities. Please see (Process Schematic) Below

Elimination of The Following Bio Hazards

Our novel technology is extraordinarily versatile and is capable of reducing or eliminating the Following:

1

HEAVY METALS

Examples of heavy metals include mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb). Heavy metals are natural components of the Earth’s crust.

These elements should never be present in our drinking water or our food source to enter in the body.

2

TRACE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

At any one time, half the hospital beds in the world are said to be occupied by people suffering from water-borne illnesses. Intentionally produced chemicals currently or once used in agriculture, disease control, manufacturing, or industrial processes. Examples include PCBs, which have been useful in a variety of industrial applications (e.g., in electrical transformers and large capacitors, as hydraulic and heat exchange fluids, and as additives to paints and lubricants) and DDT, which is still used to control mosquitoes that carry malaria in some parts of the world.

TOTAL SUSPENDED SOLIDS

Both organic and inorganic particles of all sizes can contribute to the suspended solids concentration. Total suspended solids (TSS) are particles that are larger than 2 microns found in the water column. Anything smaller than 2 microns (average filter size) is considered a dissolved solid.

This is What We Do With Water:

We are all familiar with the terms decomposition, oxidation, and reduction; ashes to ashes and dust to dust, all things returning to their natural state. Our Sun supplies all the energy that supports almost all life on earth through the process of photosynthesis.


This process maintains the atmospheric oxygen levels and supplies all of the organic compounds and most of the energy necessary for life on Earth. Meanwhile, the planet formed a natural water filter over millions and millions of years…

Wastewater Treatment Plants

Layer upon layer of materials from the large stones to the fineness of sands, all the way down to carbon to filter out impurities and then, creating massive underground reservoirs of fresh clean water. Jump ahead millions of years and we find our filter clogged and no easy way to clean it. And thus, the global expansion and need of Wastewater Treatment Plants and for new and innovative technologies to support the ever-growing demand.

CASE STUDY

The Secret of Our Reactor

By simulating the conditions of nature in a tightly controlled environmental chamber, the technology solution proposed can rapidly (by order of magnitude) accelerate these processes of decomposition, oxidation, and reduction from decades, centuries, & even millennia to seconds or minutes.

HEAT 

This is accomplished by pumping the wastewater under low to moderate pressure into the “Reactor” Chamber. While in the reactor, at the molecular level, the wastewater is subjected to Mega-high energy, extreme heat and pressure sources.

PRESSURE

These conditions cause the water (H2O) to literally be torn apart, this explosion causes the creation of plasma as well as massive amounts of Hydrogen (a reducer) and Oxygen (an Oxidizer)

A CASE STUDY IN VARIOUS WATER CONTAMINATES

Polluted Water Sources

Drinking water, also known as potable water or improved drinking water is considered safe enough for drinking and food preparation.

GLOBAL ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER

Globally, in 2012, 89% of people had access to water suitable for drinking. Nearly 4 billion had access to tap water while another 2.3 billion had access to wells or public taps. 1.8 billion people still use an unsafe drinking water source which may be contaminated by feces.

ECOLI CONTAMINATION

This can result in infectious diarrhea such as cholera and typhoid among others. Throughout most of the world today, the most common contamination of raw water sources is from human sewage and in particular human fecal pathogens and parasites.

PATHOGENS IMPACT ON HUMANS

In 2006, waterborne diseases were estimated to cause 1.8 million deaths each year while about 1.1 billion people lacked proper drinking water. Most water requires some type of treatment before use, even water from deep wells or springs. The extent of treatment depends on the source of the water.

TREATED WATER

Treated water comes from these very Water Treatment Plants. In cities and towns around the world this water is recycled over and recycled over again and again for our consumption and use. In the U.S., the typical single family home consumes 69.3 gallons (262 liters) of water per day. Uses include (in decreasing order) toilets, washing machines, showers, baths, faucets, and leaks.

POLLUTED IRRIGATION WATER

There can be significant health hazards related to using untreated wastewater in agriculture. Wastewater from cities can contain a mixture of chemical and biological pollutants. In low-income countries, there are often high levels of pathogens from excreta, while in emerging nations, where industrial development is outpacing environmental regulation, there are increasing risks from inorganic and organic chemicals.

Treating Contaminated Irrigation Water

Around 90% of wastewater produced globally remains untreated, causing widespread water pollution, especially in low-income countries. The vast majority of the agricultural products consumed in the United States come from these low-income countries. Because agriculture has to compete for increasingly scarce water resources with industry and municipal users in these areas, there is often no alternative for farmers but to use water polluted with urban waste directly to water their crops.

Access to Clean Irrigation Water

Understandably, these constituents put tremendous loads on our current wastewater and water treatment facilities. Not surprisingly, each of these processes has their own limitations, advantages and disadvantages. The informed consensus is that a combination of methods needs to be used to meet discharge standards and, that activated carbon absorption and Reverse Osmosis (RO) seem to be the best solutions.

No coincidence these two methods are the top two in expense and upkeep. Technologies for potable water treatment are well developed, and generalized designs are available that are used by many water utilities (public or private), although many impoverished nations do not have access to these processes and are not offered due to the expense and infrastructure required. USGIS has the solution.

Industrial Water and Wastewater Treatment

Automation of water and waste-water treatment is common in the developed world. High Capital costs, increasing operating costs, the availability of quality monitoring technologies and locally available skills typically dictate the level of automation adopted.

HEAT AND COLD TREATMENT

Two of the main processes of industrial water treatment are boiler water treatment and cooling water treatment. A lack of proper water treatment can lead to the reaction of solids and bacteria within pipe work and boiler housing.

Steam boilers can suffer from scale or corrosion when left untreated. Scale deposits can lead to weak and dangerous machinery issues.

While additional fuel is required to heat the same level of water because of the rise in thermal resistance/fouling, our USGIS plant is so energy efficient these processes run on the same power we generate through pelletization and gasification to generate the required energy to maintain sufficient energy. 



OPPORTUNITY IN TECHNOLOGY

Our application is providing proven technologies, integrated systems of water treatment in new and novel ways that can be deployed at an Industrial Point-of-Use, Point of Discharge , as a Stand-Alone solution or in conjunction with the existing technological processes of integration in USGIS waste treatment facilities as Wastewater and Water Treatment program.

This is a keystone to providing these individual services throughout the world that otherwise would not have access to these benefits, however working with governments and representatives all over the world we are changing the way people think about water treatment and water management.

HOW THIS SYSTEM WORKS

We are all familiar with the terms decomposition, oxidation, and reduction ashes to ashes and dust to dust as all things must return to their natural state.

Our sun supplies the energy that supports almost all life on earth through photosynthesis, this process maintains the atmospheric oxygen levels and supplies all of the organic compounds and most of the energy necessary for life on Earth.

Meanwhile, the planet formed a natural water filter over millions and millions of years, layer upon layer of materials from the large stones to the fineness of sands, all the way down to carbon to filter out impurities and then, creating massive underground reservoirs of fresh clean water.

Jump ahead millions of years and we find our filter clogged and no easy way to clean it.

And thus the global expansion and need of Wastewater Treatment Plants- and for new and innovative technologies to support the ever growing demand.
