Okke BradbaartA comparison of public and private water services: does ownership of the company's efficiency?

Property rights theory argues that the work of private companies cost-effective public enterprises. A similar effect of ownership - the main argument in favor of privatization, due to the fact that private firms, as opposed to state-owned enterprises and came face to competitive capital markets and property. In this paper we analyze a large number of real-world examples of the effects of ownership in the water companies and found that he neither independent nor comprehensive. Privatized water utilities are economically more efficient than the public. Sometimes privatization of utilities brings economic benefits, but this is not always possible. Methodological limitations of published studies makes it difficult to establish the reasons for this fact. About the behavior of producers preliminary conclusion drawn from the published data, that a change of ownership from the public to private benefits only if it is accompanied by significant reforms of the external conditions of the utility companies.

T. Saltnes, B. Eikebrokk, H. OdegardEffect of the filter in the filter with two-layer expanded clay loading (filtralite) compared to sand-anthracite filter

A comparison was made of three different filter designs for contact filtration malomutnyh water containing humic substances. Conventional filter with sand and anthracite loading was compared with the two-layer filter with expanded clay loading (Filtralite) and a filter with a large layer of coarse load Filtralite. In contact filtering water containing humic substances flakes formed coagulants based on metals, obtained usually weak and large size, which is a big cause of irrationality filtration rate and leads to removal of particles and reduce the filtration cycle. Overcoming these challenges produced by the use of large layer of coarse filter media and application polyaluminium or use as a coagulant biopolymer chitosan. Probably, the high values ​​of the initial raw water turbidity increased detention flocs to load the filter. The advantage is the high storage capacity of filter media, especially at high speeds filtration.

E.G. RizoEspecially addressing liquid waste galvanoochistnyh complexes

The features of the approaches to the disposal of sewage and other liquid waste on the powerful galvanoochistnyh complexes. It is shown that the self galvanokompleksah half of the complex can not only be self-supporting, but also profitable, which is unattainable for electroplating in the industrial enterprises, especially in the city. This fact is especially important in dealing with investment development galvanoochistnyh complexes.

The results of the study on the effect of water treatment in the electrochemical reactor for the removal efficiency of iron from the wash wastewater. The indicators of changes in water chemistry, namely, iron, hardness, permanganate oxidation, organic matter content. The principal possibility to intensify the use of electrostimulation of sediment flushing and cleaning of waste water before discharge into water bodies. Electrochemical processes create conditions for the destruction of dissolved organic substances that act as colloidal protection violate aggregate stability of iron-containing particles, providing an increase in speed up the transition of iron in the sediment.

To solve the problem of disposing of sewage sludge and reduce their environmental danger to the solution of problems in their detoxification and de-worming. In Nizhny Novgorod State University of Architecture and Construction has developed a technology disposal OGSv using amino acid compositions. This paper presents the further development of this technology in order to reduce the cost while maintaining its fundamental methodological principles. A method of detoxification and deworming OGSv based on using belkovosoderzhaschey vegetation, particularly legumes. The proposed technology is implemented in the following ways: 1. Growing legumes directly dewatered sludge maps. 2. Growing beans directly on soils with untreated OGSv made to the various ratios. Further processing is related to their refinement, handling caustic and plowing into the ground. Generated during these operations by the known amino acids interact with the technology contained in the sediment heavy metals to form complexes gidroaminokislotnye, linking metals, thus providing detoxification sediment.

V. S. Timoshuk, E.G. RizoReducing exposure to hazardous industrial facilities on the environment and the working life of the population of St. Petersburg

In recent years, due to the growth of industrial production in the depreciation of fixed assets is especially serious problem of security workers, the public and the environment. In this paper, taking into account the strategic interests of the economic, social and urban development of St. Petersburg were no suggestions to reduce exposure to hazardous facilities industry on the environment and the working life of the population. Given the need for primary conversion, output, or liquidation of enterprises located in the historical center of the city as the main tool offered interconnected two-level solutions and implementation issues. The first level contains a strategic program for the relocation of industrial enterprises from the city center. The second level prepares and implements program activities for hazardous industrial facilities and plants in accordance with the Federal Law "On technical regulation".
