Some Comments About The Ongoing Nutrient/Algae Saga
Radionuclides in Drinking Water; A Market for Ferrate?http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/AdobeStock_90111281-edited.jpg20001333Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/AdobeStock_90111281-edited.jpg
Most of the radionuclides present in drinking water supplies are from natural sources. Naturally occurring radionuclides are created in the upper atmosphere and are bound in the Earth’s crust.
Impounding Nutrient Rich Water can Never Begin to Prevent Massive Algal and Bacterial Blooms in Florida’s Waterways… NEVER…http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/AdobeStock_257034132.jpeg60164016Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/AdobeStock_257034132.jpeg
Impoundment of nutrient rich water from agricultural runoff, or wastewater treatment plant effluent has evolved as the only acceptable treatment scenario to prevent disastrous algal and bacterial blooms in Florida.
Ferrate vs. Blue Green Algae – The real culprit isn’t just nitrogen and phosphorus, it’s ammonia.http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/AdobeStock_102487370.jpeg28801920Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/AdobeStock_102487370.jpeg
It’s time to get serious about treating wastewater and stormwater runoff, PROPERLY, before it ends up in our surface and groundwater.
Blue Green Algae Everywhere … Summer of our Discontent? Let’s all Drink to That …http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Canal-Downpipe-darker-web.jpg25001392Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Canal-Downpipe-darker-web.jpg
Harmful Algal Blooms have sprung up in lakes, rivers and coastal waters across the nation; it looks like the pigeons have come home to roost …. payback for our continued discharge of nutrients into the environment. Perhaps a harbinger of things to come? Treating these discharges to remove the nutrients is doable and affordable, and it’s about time to focus our resources on treatment and clean-up …. Not more monitoring.
Dorian’s Gone, So Let’s Get Back to Work on Biosolidshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/AdobeStock_87381595-web.jpg25001667Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/AdobeStock_87381595-web.jpg
Since we have to do SOMETHING with our wastewater sludge, people should know the difference between it and “biosolids”, and why we need to remove ammonia nitrogen before spreading them on our fields.
The blue green algae crisis: Believe it or not, there’s hopehttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/FS-Presentations-1-Purple-bg.jpg40002250Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/FS-Presentations-1-Purple-bg.jpg
These days, it seems like everyone is weighing in about Florida’s blue green algae crisis. The crescendo is hitting notes on everything from blame and finger-pointing, to doomsday predictions and “kick the can down the road” advocacies for more research and study. – Read More on Naples Daily News
Algae be gone!….. but when?http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/AdobeStock_238654447-web-1.jpg20001333Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/AdobeStock_238654447-web-1.jpg
The FDEP has just begun its review of the Basin Management Action Plans (BMAP) for the State of Florida, which were issued five years ago.
Canals ALREADY catch it all! Let’s use them for treatment.http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/AdobeStock_183780961-web.jpg20001333Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/AdobeStock_183780961-web.jpg
As our Basin Management Plans (BMAP) are being reviewed, and the Blue-Green Algae Task Force continues to meet, serious discussions are taking place about ways to actually limit nutrient input to our surface waters.
PFAS? Ferrate Works On That, Too.http://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/AdobeStock_245370103-web.jpg20001333Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/AdobeStock_245370103-web.jpg
Perfluorinated compounds (PFAS) are chemicals consisting of a carbon structure attached to fluorine molecules.
First non-U.S. Water Treatability Tests Completedhttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Jordan-Water-darker.png1300640Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Jordan-Water-darker.png
Ferrate Solutions was actually launched with a more dire mission and market target – cleaning up contaminated drinking water in developing countries where the only alternative for safe water, is to buy it bottled.
January News: Purple Power – Ferrate Removes 94% of Ammonia from Florida Landfill Leachatehttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/AdobeStock_240933429-web-darker.jpg25001665Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/AdobeStock_240933429-web-darker.jpg
A team of Ferrate Solutions engineers spent the first week of January running treatability tests of Ferrate on leachate from one of Florida’s largest landfills, and the result was near-total removal of ammonia from the wastewater samples.
Florida will remain paralyzed with nutrient-contaminated waters until large-scale chemical treatment is usedhttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/AdobeStock_240644969-web.jpg20001333Ferrate SolutionsFerrate Solutionshttp://ferrate-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/AdobeStock_240644969-web.jpg
