Treated wastewater (TWW) reuse has increasingly been integrated in the planning and development of water resources in Tunisia. The present study aimed the evaluation of the environmental and health impact that would have the reuse of TWW for crops direct irrigation or for the recharge of the local aquifer in Korba (Tunisia). For this purpose water analyses were carried on the TWW intended for the aquifer recharge and on underground water of this area. As for underground water before recharge, no contamination by organic matter or heavy metals is shown but high salinity, nitrate, potassium and chloride concentrations are detected. The bacteriological analyses show the occurrence of faecal streptococcus, thermo-tolerant coliforms, total coliforms and E coli, but absence of salmonella. These results indicate that this water is not suitable for irrigation worse still for drinking purpose. The monitoring of TWW pollutants has demonstrated that oxygen demands (COD and BOD) do not exceed the Tunisian standards for TWW used in agriculture (NT 106.03) except for August when samples reach high values (COD=139 mg O2L-1, BOD = 34). It is also the case for temperature, electrical conductivity (EC), salinity and pH. Heavy metal concentrations are under the detection limit. The determination of nutrients shows relatively low concentrations of nitrates, nitrites and orthophosphate (the maxima in mg L-1 are respectively 6.6, 5.6 and 0.92) whereas the potassium levels are high (up to 48.8 mg L-1) and the ammonia levels very high, reaching 60.6 mg L-1. As for bacteriological pollution, while no salmonella and intestinal nematods are detected, high concentrations of total coliforms, thermo-tolerant coliforms, faecal streptococci and E. coli are analysed. Consequently, the better use of TWW in this region would be the use of infiltration basins for the recharge of the deteriorated aquifer by TWW. It would give the opportunity to better the quality of the TWW reaching the groundwater by an additional treatment for bacteriological and suspended solid (TSS) contaminants while being an alternative water for the aquifer recharge and a coastal barrier against seawater intrusion. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.


Congruent phosphate control is the boiler water internal treatment most widely used in many industries, such as pulp and paper, chemical, petrochemical and in many applications for the power generation. The great benefit lays on the ability of this program to absorb small quantities of contaminants, such as acid, caustic, liquors and others. The big challenge is to maintain the Na:PO4 ratio inside the established limits. If the boiler chemistry is controlled within these limits, the risks of deposition and many forms of corrosion are practically neglected. Due to contaminations and steam production variation, manual systems produce irregular results of "in box time" on the control charts. The first generations of automated systems brought excellent results, with a high percentage of in box time. OnGuard iController, the controller presented in this paper, raised significantly this control, providing much more reliable results to the boiler water treatment. The system description shows the equipment benefits and its capabilities. Along with the description, two case histories are described and show precise conclusions for this controller.

It's pretty much a rite of passage for any tech company these days, as you get larger and more recognized, some company that has an overly broad and probably obvious patent will sue you for patent infringement. For the company in question, the lawsuit is as much a publicity event as it is an attempt to squeeze revenue from an actual innovator. The latest example of this is with an Ohio company no one's heard of called Leader Technologies, who is suing Facebook for patent infringement , and was kind enough to send out a press release announcing this before Facebook even got to see the lawsuit. Clearly, this is a publicity stunt.As for the patent itself, it basically describes the rather obvious process of associating a piece of data with multiple categories . It's almost surprising that the company is suing Facebook instead of Google. While I'm not a heavy Facebook user, I'm not sure where Facebook uses such a system. Google, however, has made widespread use of a similar idea with its Gmail "labels." The idea is that rather than sorting data into a specific folder or category, it can be associated with multiple categories. If that seems rather obvious and ridiculously broad, well, that's the patent system for you these days.

Facebook’s legal woes just won’t stop coming. Last November a company called Leader Technologies, which makes business communcation tools, filed suit against Facebook alleging that the social network had infringed on a patent that “relates to a method and system for the management and storage of electronic information.” The case is still ongoing, and it sounds like it has some legs — earlier this week Facebook was ordered by a Magistrate Judge from the District of Delaware’s District Court to give Leader Technologies access to its entire source code. As reported at Law360, Facebook has until the end of this week to hand over a hierarchical map of the source, and has until August 21st to share its entire codebase with the company. Of course, Facebook is going to fight tooth and nail against this, and is sure to appeal the ruling. Facebook has given us the following statement regarding the case: While we respect the magistrate judge’s opinion, we disagree with it on this point and plan to appeal. Generally, this suit is without merit and we will continue to fight it aggressively. This isn’t the only legal battle Facebook is facing. It’s currently being sued by Power.com over issues related to data portability, as well as by multiple advertisers alleging click fraud. You can view Leader Tech’s request to have Facebook reveal its code below: http://viewer.docstoc.com/ Thanks to Aditi Tuteja for the tip.

An update to our earlier report about the recent ruling of a Magistrate Judge from Delaware’s District Court, who ordered Facebook to give the decidedly low-profile company Leader Technologies access to its entire source code base based on alleged patent infringement. The case is still ongoing. Court documents dated September 4 were posted on RealGeek.com this morning and reveal that Facebook’s prompt objections to having to reveal its entire source code the first time has been rejected. The renewed court order again obliges the social networking company to give Leader full access to its source code, but still under very strict conditions (more on that later). This renewed court order does not mean Leader Technologies, dubbed a ‘patent troll’ by tech blog Venturebeat when it first caught wind of the case back in November 2008, can crack open the champagne just yet. (also see update with Facebook statement below) The suit revolves around alleged infringement of this patent (PDF), No. 7,139,761, issued by the USPTO on November 21, 2006. The patent generally relates to a method and system for the management and storage of electronic information. Leader Technologies has sought unspecified damages and an injunction against Facebook for willfully and deliberately infringing on the patent, and initially found a sympathetic ear with District of Delaware Magistrate Judge Leonard Stark: Facebook was forced to provide Leader with a hierarchical map of its source code by the end of July, and the entire code by August 21. Facebook in a statement said it disagrees with the opinion of the judge, is appealing the order, and says it will fight the “merit-less” suite aggressively. Facebook asked for a stay of the order until its appeal could be heard by a higher judge, but the lower court denied that stay saying essentially that Justice must move on. According to the latest public Court Order document dated 4th September 2009 (embedded below), Facebook objections were denied and the company will still need to produce its entire source code for Leader’s review no later than September 15, 2009. The Court makes it clear that it believes Facebook to fully understand Leader’s infringement theory and finds the company’s contentions that it will be irreparably harmed by giving access to its entire source code non-persuasive. The judge rejected Facebook’s arguments that it would be irreparably harmed by having to reveal its source code because of the protective measures under which the code would be reviewed—in a secure room with no Internet access at a location of Facebook’s choosing on a secure computer. Leader’s lawyers and experts reviewing the code would be bound by a court-ordered confidentiality agreement and will only be able to take hand-written notes. You can still expect Facebook to fight this one tooth and nail just for fear of this setting a new precedent every time it gets sued. The company is currently formulating its response to the posting of the documents and its content; we’ll update once they get back to us. “It is extremely common in software intellectual property cases for there to be some form of source code review. In this case, the review is subject to a very restrictive protective order, which limits what they see and what they can do with any information they glean from review. Further, plaintiffs’ do not receive the code but merely get to inspect it.”
