  1. Sustainable Development in the Process Industries: Cases and Impact


    The complete, hands-on guide to sustainable development Today's process industries must develop natural resources within an eco-friendly framework that balances current demand with future need. Realizing this goal necessitates global vigilance of three key areas—people, planet, and prosperity—known...

  2. Industrial Water Management: A Systems Approach, 2nd Edition


    This CD-ROM shows how to systematically incorporate the principles of water conservation, recycling, and reuse into the design of new plants, retrofits of existing systems, and technology development. Technology summaries and case studies that support this systematic approach to water reuse, as...

  3. Water Sustainability for the Pulp and Paper Industry


    This is a 2 day intensive workshop related to water sustainability issues in the pulp and paper industry. The objective is to develop a more detailed best practices effort as the pulp and paper industry moves forward in reducing their water footprint and investing in expanding their water sustainability initiatives.

  4. Critical Water Issues for the Chemical Process Industries


    David Klanecky, global director of research and development for Dow Water & Process Solutions, provides an overview of the resins and water filtration technologies helping chemical process industries to make the most of the water we have today without risking the supplies of tomorrow.

  5. The Water-Energy Nexus: Emerging Issues and Challenges


    This webinar provides an overview of water and energy interdependencies, as well as examples of emerging US and international water and energy related challenges, and discusses the potential local and regional conflicts that could emerge.

  6. Using Catalytic Nanoparticles to Clean Water

  7. Use Cascade Analysis to Optimize Water Networks

    CEP Magazine article, July 2006

    This numerical technique for identifying fresh water and wastewater targets eliminates the tedious and time-consuming steps of graphical targeting approaches. Use it to complement the graphical techniques in the design and retrofit of water networks.

  8. Retrofit Water Systems the SHARPS Way

    CEP Magazine article, November 2006

    Use the Systematic Hierarchical Approach for Resilient Process Screening (SHARPS) technique to quickly and systematically isolate cost-effective and affordable water management options prior to design.

  9. Wastewater Treatment: Understanding the Activated Sludge Process

    CEP Magazine article, November 2009

    The activated sludge process is used to treat waste streams that are high in organics and biodegradable compounds. Here are some principles of design and operation.

  10. Meeting the Needs of the Water-Energy Nexus

    CEP Magazine article, April 2011

    Water is required to produce energy, and energy is required to make use of water — the two are, and always will be, inextricably linked. Engineers must understand the water-energy nexus in order to manage both efficiently and sustainably.
