These discussions from the Ultrapure Water LinkedIn group examine three areas. The first is nanotechnology, and what promise it may hold for water treatment technology advancement. The second discussion examines the reuse of idle treatment equipment for other purposes. For example, the use of membrane system to treat wastewater or prepare a waste stream for use in a cooling tower. The final brief exchange looks at the need for calibrating total organic carbon (TOC) instruments.
