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.Read the full article.
The online THM-100™ monitor provides utilities with continuous high frequency THM and THM formation potential (THM-FP) data in real time. With the help of the THM-100™, utilities can design cost-effective THM treatment systems, optimize their water or wastewater treatment process and reduce related expenses while ensuring compliance with regulatory standards for THMs.Read the brochure.
The Athens Water Supply & Sewerage Company S.A. (EYDAP) installed the online THM-100™ analyzer to the drinking water reservoir outlet of the Galatsi Water Treatment Plant for a three-month evaluation period, providing EYDAP with continuous online analysis of THM values. The real-time THM data helped EYDAP to understand how the total THM (TTHM) concentration and THM speciation composition are affected by changes in raw source water quality and chlorine contact time. With the help of the reliable data provided by the THM-100, EYDAP was able to better mitigate the presence of harmful THMs across the service area.Read the case study.
Approximately 50% of water and wastewater utilities experience delays in chemical availability due to supply chain disruptions. According to McKinsey & Company’s January 2023 Chemicals Practice Insight “A new operations formula for the chemicals sector,” 2022 was a tumultuous year for the global chemical sector which faced spiraling costs, looming skills shortage, and pressure for decarbonization. So, what does this all mean for the water industry? In this episode of AMS Talks AMS CEO Rick Bacon and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud discuss critical chemical supply chain risk and explore solutions to help mitigate exposure to those risks in the water industry.Watch the video.
The Bilbao Bizkaia Advanced Water Treatment Centre (CATABB) in Etxebarri, Bizkaia, Spain, is an open platform for innovation and research in water treatment that was designed and built by the Bilbao Bizkaia Water Consortium (BBWC) in 2018. To aid CATABB in a study to better understand the adsorption and desorption process of their GAC filters, an online THM-100™ analyzer was installed at the facility to quickly deliver accurate and reliable data on THM levels. According to BBWC, thanks to the online THM-100™ analyzer, staff in the CATABB facility has been able to quickly detect variations in the THMs concentration and have a greater control of the water quality. In addition, the online THM-100™ analyzer has become a very useful tool for current and future research in the study of the generation of disinfection by-products, and it will enable the opening of new lines of research and collaboration at CATABB.Read the case study.
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.Read the full article.
In December 2022, the State of California published its long-awaited recommendation for a regulatory limit for hexavalent chromium (Cr6) in water of 10 ppb. According to the California State Water Resources Control Board, there are more than 2,600 community systems with elevated Cr6 levels serving nearly 13 million people. This proposed regulation unequivocally identifies AMS and its in-situ stannous generation technology, SafeGuard™ H2O, as the best available technology to treat Cr6 and provide safe drinking water to the millions of consumers across California, many of whom live in underserved communities. Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring AMS CEO Rick Bacon and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud who discuss how this proven and cost-effective solution can treat most of the wells with high Cr6 levels, giving a peace of mind to water utilities impacted by this new regulation.Watch the video.
The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department in Arizona, is using the THM-100™ online THM analyzer to continuously, accurately and reliability monitor THM values in real-time at its Tres Rios Water Reclamation Facility.Read the case study.
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.Read the full article.
