Wastewater from domestic, commercial, and industrial facilities contains significant amounts of thermal energy. This thermal energy can be harnessed and reused through a process called wastewater heat recovery. In this article we’ll explore what wastewater heat recovery is, discuss components of heat recovery, and look at benefits and issues with wastewater heat recovery.
At JADE Learning, we are fortunate to work with individuals who are experts in their field with decades of knowledge and passion for their industry.

The principal of using naturally occurring organisms to clean water is not new. Biological wastewater treatment plants utilize microorganisms to reduce and contain pollutants, preventing discharge into the water environment. Exciting research and field analysis has provided data that supports the use of higher life forms to finish the job by directly introducing […]
When you read this title what images come to mind? Is it huge helicopters and fire trucks scooping tons of water from a nearby treatment system or reservoir to battle a blaze? Sadly, the connection between wildfires and water treatment is not a positive one. Wildfires are detrimental to water quality, water treatment systems, and infrastructure. In this article, we’ll explore exactly how wildfires negatively impact water treatment systems and water quality. We will also cover wildfire mitigation and […]
