Article
Full-text available
The article is focused on the issue of blackouts in a water industry and the selection of a renewable energy source for a water treatment plant. In the case of power outage, it is necessary to constantly ensure the supply of a drinking water, if this requirement would not be met, it could cause of deterioration of hygiene and health of the populati...
Article
Full-text available
A prerequisite for achieving high energy efficiency of water supply systems (understood as using less energy to perform the same task) is the appropriate selection of all elements and their rational use. Energy consumption in water supply systems (WSS) is closely connected with water demand. Especially in the case of oversized water supply systems...

The issue of sustainable management of biosolids (excess sludge) from wastewater treatment is an important issue in the entire developed world. Residual sludge disposal costs and environmental impact may be significant, and reducing such costs, as well as the energy consumption for dewatering and drying, is a key issue for safe and sustainable slud...
Article
Wastewater from snack foods manufacturing processes may contain significant amounts of pollutants that may affect receiving municipal treatment facilities. Their removal with onsite pre-treatment is therefore necessary, to avoid costly discharge fees. This paper presents a study of two common pollutants in snack-food industry wastewater, namely ann...
Article
Full-text available
The main rule included in IPPC directive obligate installation owner to operate it in the sustainable way in order to reduce impact for the environment. Water resources are limited, therefore many industry, in particular in the water-stressed area, must invest in water-saving programs. In particular, this problem applies to the paper plants, that s...
Article
The present paper reveals results of research for cost effective removal of chemical oxygen demand (COD) contained in industrial –paper mill effluent. Not only process efficiency but also wastewater treatment costs are discussed. Different pre-treatment processes are applied aiming to investigate the COD removal before the discharge to municipal se...
Article
Full-text available
Food industry is one of the most important and fastest growing sectors of economy in Poland. This sector is also characterized by high demand for the resources, particularly for water. Polish food industrial plants consumed 793 hm3 of water in 2014. Dairy branch had a combined 35% share of the above consumption. As shown by the data obtained from t...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this study was to determine the level of disinfection by-products in swimming pool waters in the Opole region. The authors paid special attention to determining the concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs), which are formed in water during disinfection. Five indoor swimming pools were selected to provide a different range of basin capaci...
Article
Full-text available
Water management and associated wastewater management is an inseparable element of life and development of modern societies. Collection and treatment of wastewater has a significant impact on the environment and economy, both at the local and global level. It is therefore necessary to proceed to activities that ensure proper wastewater management,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Outdoors, radon is quickly diluted to very low, not problematic concentrations but indoors, it can concentrate significantly. Places that are particularly exposed to an increased radon concentration from water sources are places where water is dispersed, e.g. bathrooms or areas in water treatment facilities. The aim of the paper is to present the c...

The aim of this study was to determine the level of disinfection by-products in selected outdoor swimming pool in the Opole Voivodship. The authors paid special attention to the determination of the concentration of trihalomethanes (THMs), which are formed during disinfection in water. Five outdoor swimming pools were selected in five different cit...
Article
Full-text available
The determination of raw water hardness subsequently treated and used for domestic water supplies is a useful parameter to characterize the present total dissolved solids as well as for calculation dosages for lime-soda softening application. Because water hardness concentrations have not been proven to be health related, the final achieved level i...
Article
Full-text available
The main of this research was to recognize the efficiency of geothermal water deironing processes. To this, studies on a laboratory scale were conducted. In the paper the modeling of geothermal water deironing processes using new tool basis on triangulation has been used. Carrying out the analysis of potential possibilities of using geothermal wate...
Article
Full-text available
The article presents the formation and toxicity of trihalomethanes (THMs), substances belonging to Disinfection ByProducts (DBP), formed as a result of pool water chlorination. Concentration of THMs in pool water has been standardised in Poland since recently. THMs concentration in pool water depends on multiple factors, mostly the method of water...
Article
Full-text available
This article reviews publications on trihalomethanes (THM-s), their toxicity and ways to reduce the content of the pool water. In the introduction was described the problems of disinfection by-products, so-called DBP, which include THM-s. The aim of the article was to describe the sources and the impact of THM-s for swimming pools users and the pos...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of the research was to determine the effectiveness of nano-silver biocide on cooling water biological stability which should lead to attempt to optimise the operation of the cooling towers functioning in metallurgical plants. As shown by the study results, the nano-silver agents allowing for reduction/elimination of biological threats i...
Article
Full-text available
The development of the nano-silver production technology as well as its unquestionable biocidal properties have given rise to a great interest of the electric power production market in the use of the nano-silver as an agent improving the maintenance of biological stability of the cooling water. The laboratory tests performed on the water collected...

This document deals with the need for construction of new pumped storage hydroelectric power plants. Special attention has been dedicated mainly to the search for suitable locations to place PVEs, including utilization of new options of their placement. © 2015 IEEE.
Article
Full-text available
European metallurgy industry has to invest in innovations and new technologies in order to remain competitive on the world market. Because very often this action leads to limitation of the negative impact upon the environment, that is why lots of innovations implemented by iron and steel industry bear the features of environmental innovations and e...

Cooling towers are specific heat exchangers that provide perfect conditions for microorganism growth. Currently used disinfection methods involving the use of chlorine, chlorine dioxide, UV, or ozone are effective; however, they have many drawbacks. Silver nanoparticles have become one of the most commonly used nano-materials because of their effec...
