VSEP Slashes Waste Treatment Costs

A/Prof Heitz’s team found VSEP reliably trapped 97 per cent of organic contaminants above the membrane, allowing smaller salts to filter through and produce a concentrated salt solution that is re-used upstream. SHAKE, rattle and roll has slashed costs and reduced waste volumes at the Wanneroo Groundwater Treatment Plant. The Wanneroo plant is successfully using

VSEP – Paradigm Shift in Brine Minimisation

Provided you are not directly adjacent to a saltwater disposal point, RO brine disposal is problematic and expensive. Brine concentration in traditional reverse osmosis membrane systems is limited by the amount of silica in the feed water. VSEP’s vibratory oscillation prevents silica fouling, and thus VSEP is ultimately limited by osmotic pressure, not silica. Because

WHY IS WATER EXTRACTED FROM THE COAL SEAM?

Why is there Water in Coal Seams? Coals in Australia were formed up to 350 million years ago. Vegetation such as grasses, trees, leaves and other organic material fell to the earth in swamps or in areas that later became inland seas. Where the vegetation collected in sufficient quantities, and under the right conditions, the process
