The convention handled a number of physicochemical methodologies for water and wastewater therapy learn initiatives that have been together subsidized by way of U.S. EPA and Poland.

Efficient polihng methods are based on processes used for the demineralization of low-salinity waters. In many cases the placement of a weakly basic anion-exchange bed before the mixed bed leads to savings in caustic soda and to prolonged working cycles for the mixed bed. The regeneration of the polishing units should be carried out in the same manner as in conventional demineralization plants. It is also possible to mix the partially demineralized water with water to be deminera- 18 I r- I 1 Processing of ammonium nitratr t L 1 Condenro te NH,+ + NO; - I I I I I I I I I I I c-I I I o f f luent for regen.

2. ACID RAIN Without the 110,000 cubic kilometres of rain that fall each year, the continents would be barred. Yet now the rain in parts of the earth has taken on a new and threatening complexity. It mixes in the air with pollution from burning fossil fuels - particularly in power sta- 36 tions, factories and motor vehicles - and brings down dilute sulphuric and nitric acid. This is killing fish and other water life, and corroding buildings, including some of the world’s most important ancient monuments.

One may expect that the consumption of energy in developed countries will grow in proportion to their production capacity and standard of living. This growth seems to be accompanied by an effort to decrease the consumption of energy resources, especially the consumption of oil. In underdeveloped countries, where the majority of the human population is living, to ensure an adequate supply of food as well an improvement in the standard of living, a substantial increase in energy consumption will be necessary.
