Brine Management Options Part 2
In certain circumstances, low concentrations of brine can be used in agriculture for irrigation.
Brine Management Options Part 1
In dealing with brine that has gone through a desalination process, there are several options for disposal
Secrets of Highly Successful Brine Ponds
The rate of evaporation is the key factor affecting efficiency in a brine pond.
How Do You Construct Brine Ponds? Part 2
All brine containment ponds must be constructed with an impermeable, chemically resistant liner
Questions about Brine Evaporative Ponds
Evaporation ponds are an ancient technology used around the world to produce salt for human usage
Alternatives to Brine Ponds?
There are, of course, many ways that brine is, or has been, handled in different times and in different parts of the world.
When is a Brine Pond the Best Choice?
The construction costs of brine ponds are high enough that they’re best employed for long term use
How Do Brine and Evaporation Ponds Work?
Brine ponds and, indeed, evaporation ponds in general, work on the premise that a volume of liquid exposed to sunlight and relatively dry air can be reduced
How to Manage Brine Waste with Ponds
Brine ponds tend to fall into one of the following general categories, each of which have unique design and maintenance needs.
When Should a Brine Pond be Covered?
Brine ponds used for storage have a different goal than those used for mining
What is the Best Brine Pond Liner?
Brine ponds are particularly challenging when it comes to containment
How Much Does a Brine Pond Cost?
It’s impossible to quote an average price for an “average” brine pond because so many factors must be considered.
What is the Best Way to Maintain Brine Ponds?
Brine ponds are fairly static elements, so it seems like they may not require much in the way of maintenance
Brine Pond Construction
In addition to preparing a good design for your brine pond that takes into consideration the specific purpose
What is the Best Brine Pond Design?
While some particularly caustic or contaminated brines can only be stored in deep wells
How Does Land for Brine Ponds Get Reused?
Most brine ponds and other types of evaporation ponds are intended for long-term use, but eventually the land needs to be reclaimed, especially near cities or agricultural regions.
Why is Brine Bad for the Environment?
For thousands of years, humans have recognized that salt and growing things don’t work well together.
What is a Brine Pond?
Brine ponds are water impoundments that can contain a relatively heavy concentration of dissolved salts and other minerals.
Brine Water Treatment through Evaporation Ponds
Brine may be a word you associate with the ocean or pickles, but there are dozens of other sources of saltwater throughout the industrial and manufacturing sector.
How are Brine Ponds Designed?
Designing a quality brine pond, that functions as desired, takes a lot more work than just picking a liner.
Which Liner Material is Best for Brine Ponds?
A liner of some kind is essential for a brine pond because the water can’t be allowed to seep out through bare soil.
The Question of Covers for Brine Ponds
When brine ponds are designed for short or long-term storage rather than evaporation or alternative processing, covers are often used to contain the water.
How Brine Ponds Differ from Other Evaporation Ponds
Evaporation ponds are used for non-brine wastewater too, so in some cases they do not need such stringent engineering and security as the brine pond.
Why Brine Ponds Are Better Than Other Processing Methods
Sizes, depths, volumes, and length of use vary, but all lined brine ponds share some common advantages over other processing methods available for brine treatment.
Sources of Brine Waste
The term brine doesn’t just refer to the combination of water and salt.
