Viewpoints: Upgrade, Retrofit and Optimize: Decarbonizing Treatment Plants With Smart Water Tech
Real-time insights and innovative water treatment technologies can minimize the environmental impact of water and wastewater treatment. Specifically, the AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O technology, which generates ferrous or stannous-based water treatment reagents on-site and on-demand, coupled with real-time monitoring, can reduce the need for bulk toxic chemicals and displace traditional treatment technologies, significantly reducing emissions.
Outlook 2023: Driving Digitalization in the Water Sector to Transform the Way We Treat Water
AMS is at forefront of digitalization in the water sector. AMS enters 2023 with several significant achievements in 2022 that position it for a broad-based and robust growth of its AMS Analytics and AMS Environment divisions in 2023 and beyond. In this exclusive piece “Driving Digitalization in the Water Sector to Transform the Way We Treat Water,” Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, shares how AMS is helping transform the way we treat water by providing facilities with proven solutions that will improve their energy efficiency and help them control their GHG emissions.
Technical Brief: Cost-effective SafeGuard™ H2O Arsenic Removal Technology Paves the Way for More Stringent Federal Arsenic Standards
Currently, the EPA is reviewing its MCL recommendations for arsenic since technological advancements such as the SafeGuard™ H2O now make it possible to economically treat to levels of 5 ppb and lower. SafeGuard™ H2O is proven to eliminate arsenic and drastically reduce the cost of removing this toxic contaminant from drinking water supplies. The SafeGuard™ H2O arsenic treatment system generates a ferric reagent in-situ through a simple, effective and sustainable process.
Aqua Metrology Systems: Putting Climate at the Heart of Water Treatment
Unsustainable approaches to water treatment are pervasive, partly due to a lack of real-time data. H2O Global News caught up with Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems, to discover how a potent combination of accurate insights and eco-friendly treatment methods can help build an industry fit for the future.
Isleton, Calif. SafeGuard™ H2O Arsenic Treatment System Demonstration Report
California American Water’s Isleton Water System underwent an evaluation of SafeGuard™ H2O, an intelligent arsenic remediation system manufactured by AMS. This innovative technology generates a ferrous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process to address arsenic contamination. The objective of the project was to demonstrate the ability of the electrogenerated ferrous reagent produced on demand by the SafeGuard™ H2O system to remove arsenic from unchlorinated well water reliably and effectively. The SafeGuard™ H2O system consistently treated arsenic below 10 ppb and the technology’s modular design can be easily integrated with the facility’s existing coagulation/filtration system; replacing the use of liquid ferric chloride and providing the facility with operational and capital savings.
Driving Carbon Neutrality with Real-Time Online Monitoring and Intelligent Treatment Solutions
Moving and treating water and wastewater are energy-intensive processes that result in considerable greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately contribute to climate change. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is key to preventing the detrimental effects of climate change on the environment, water availability and human health. Improving energy efficiency is an essential part of keeping carbon emissions under control; spurring continuous upgrades to water and wastewater treatment processes that reduce the amount of energy, chemicals and other resources used. By investing in online and predictive analytical solutions, along with advanced intelligent treatment solutions, the global water treatment industry can achieve cost efficiency and carbon neutrality.
Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, provides an in-depth review of the lessons learned from 2021 and outlook for AMS in 2022 and beyond. AMS has developed disruptive solutions to address several of the pressing problems facing the global industrial and municipal water treatment industry while actively supporting the drive to net-zero-carbon. Through a technology platform of advanced solutions to analyze and treat trace metal and inorganic contaminants, AMS helps enterprises to meet stringent regulatory standards aimed at protecting human health and the environment in as carbon neutral a way as possible.
Los Banos, Calif. SafeGuard™ H2O Cr(VI) Treatment System Pilot Report
A SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent Cr(VI) remediation system demonstration unit with a treatment capacity of 10 gpm was installed with the City of Los Banos, California to evaluate the performance of the technology to treat Cr(VI) to non-detect levels (under 1 ppb) in unchlorinated well water. SafeGuard H2O is an innovative technology based on a proprietary approach that generates on demand a stannous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process. The pilot with Los Banos provided confirmation of the technology’s efficacy and third-party validation of the SafeGuard H2O system as a cost-effective alternative to traditional Cr(VI) treatment systems. Results are detailed.
Minimize the Environmental Impact of Semiconductor Manufacturing with Real-Time Online Trace Metals Analysis
Semiconductor manufacturing is not only highly dependent on large volumes of water that must be treated to ultrapure standards, but the process also generates significant volumes of wastewater that contains heavy metals and toxic solvents. To reduce its environmental impact, the semiconductor industry is actively searching for new ways to optimize water consumption and improve the quality of wastewater effluent. AMS offers innovative online real-time, continuous trace metals monitoring solutions designed to aid the semiconductor industry in optimizing water consumption, improving the quality of wastewater effluent and reducing its environmental impact.
The Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management
The Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management, published in August 2020 by The Global Tailings Review, provides a framework for safe tailings facility management while affording Operators flexibility as to how best to achieve this goal. The Standard strives to achieve the ultimate goal of zero harm to people and the environment with zero tolerance for human fatality.
