EPA's New Gas STAR Gold Program As Innovation Incubator
By Audrey Bold, Energy Recovery
The U.S. EPA rollout of their new gas STAR Gold program to supplement the successful, voluntary natural gas STAR program is an encouraging step towards reducing carbon impact. We knew the agency was planning to announce their new approach to reducing methane emissions, and what we heard in San Antonio at the Natural Gas STAR Annual Implementation Workshop was exciting, as it holds potential for the entire oil and gas value chain.
Slipstream Ballast Water Treatment Approach Makes Life Easier For Managers And Owners
By Severn Trent De Nora
Installation flexibility of an electrolytic ballast water treatment design is determined by its placement inline with the main ballast system or its ability to treat a portion of the ballast water volume to achieve discharge standards.

High-Performance Liquid-Liquid Separation By Pentair
Liquid-liquid separation is the process of separating two immiscible liquids. Efficient liquid-liquid separation ensures product quality and water specifications, and eliminates numerous process issues. Pentair can separate two immiscible fluids with the specific gravity differences as low as 0.02 and deliver effluent concentrations lower than 5 parts per million.
Ceramic Membranes Turn Produced Water Into A Resource
The process of fracking produces heavily contaminated wastewater, or produced water. This video shows how ceramic ultrafiltration membranes can treat produced water for reuse in future fracking operations, for irrigation, or for discharge to a receiving stream.
