After Decades of Indirect Potable Reuse; Are We Ready for the Next Step, Direct Potable Reuse?

Thursday, October 12, 2017
OCSD Headquarters
Fountain Valley, California

AAEES is dedicated to excellence in the practice of environmental engineering to ensure the public health safety and welfare. In Southern California, a key component of the practice focuses on meeting the challenge of securing future water supplies. Historically, water purchased from outside the region provided a reliable source. However, reduction in imported water supplies, combined with recurring droughts and population growth, indicate that demand for water will overwhelm supply unless new regional sources are developed.

Filter May Be a Match for Fracking Water

Superhydrophilic Membrane Cleans Fluids for Reuse

Date: September 25, 2017
Source: Rice University
Summary: A superhydrophilic filter has proven able to remove more than 90 percent of contaminants from water used in hydraulic fracturing operations at shale oil and gas wells.

A new filter produced by Rice University scientists has proven able to remove more than 90 percent of hydrocarbons, bacteria and particulates from contaminated water produced by hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations at shale oil and gas wells.

The work by Rice chemist Andrew Barron and his colleagues turns a ceramic membrane with microscale pores into a superhydrophilic filter that "essentially eliminates" the common problem of fouling.

The researchers determined one pass through the membrane should clean contaminated water enough for reuse at a well, significantly cutting the amount that has to be stored or transported.

The work is reported in Nature's open-access Scientific Reports.

The filters keep emulsified hydrocarbons from passing through the material's ionically charged pores, which are about one-fifth of a micron wide, small enough that other contaminants cannot pass through. The charge attracts a thin layer of water that adheres to the entire surface of the filter to repel globules of oil and other hydrocarbons and keep it from clogging.

A hydraulically fractured well uses more than 5 million gallons of water on average, of which only 10 to 15 percent is recovered during the flowback stage. "This makes it very important ... click here to continue.
