Keeping Groundwater Safe

While we here at Advanced Filtration work with a lot of manufacturers, industry, power companies, biotech, and the like, we are also normal everyday people who live in New Jersey and are engaged with the well-being of our planet. Which is why, when we're looking at topics such as the safety of groundwater, we think of it both on an industrial/professional level, and on a personal and residential level. To that end, we're going to discuss a wide variety of issues regarding groundwater, and how to keep it clean and safe--and why that is so important. Water covers a whole lot of the Earth. In fact, it exists in cracks, crevices, and beneath the earth’s surfaces where we wouldn’t even think to look. It makes up most of the human body and is vital for all living things. This just further proves just how important clean water is. It becomes apparent how important water quality is during the warm months where everyone is out enjoying our beautiful lakes, oceans, and rivers. If you’re looking to have an impact on your water quality, here are some ways you can be a part of the solution. Why Is Groundwater Important? Very often,…

Understanding the Transition To Renewable Energy

Here at Advanced Filtration, we're working with some of the most forward-thinking manufacturers and energy companies in the United States, and across the world. And as we see what our partners are doing, we continue to notice an increasing trend toward renewable energy as our global community seeks better ways to be environmentally friendly. This move crucial to the survival of our species on this planet, and in this article we want to dig deeper into understanding why the transition to renewable energy so important. Carbon-Based Fuels are in Limited Supply According to the Millennium Alliance for Humanity & the Biosphere at Stanford University, energy consumption worldwide grew by 2.3% in 2018, nearly twice the average rate of growth since 2010 (see full article here). Indeed, some experts estimate that we will run out of fossil fuels within a century, and this adds pressure to our world leaders to come up with a sustainable solution. As demand for more energy goes up, there’s more pressure for sustainable solutions. Renewable Energy is Clean Energy Renewable energy isn’t just sustainable – it’s also better for our planet. Carbon emissions contribute to more carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere, harming our ozone layer.…

Biodegradable vs. Compostable – Is There A Difference?

Here at Advanced Filtration, we are constantly looking at new trends in our industry as well as movements around the world. In recent years, environmental conservation has become a crucial topic for everyone—not just the ecologically-conscious—and many organizations are working towards implementing policies that will drive this agenda. Because of this, not only are many companies, governmental agencies, and other organizations switching to green energy sources whenever possible, but manufacturers are also making environmental products that people can recycle and reuse. However, it can sometimes become difficult for a company to choose which products are the best to make, or which to choose for their everyday use. In this article, we want to explore this topic further, and clear up some of the confusion. When people talk about environmentally friendly products, “compostable” and “biodegradable” are some of the words they use often. However, is there a difference between biodegradable and compostable products, or are they interchangeable terms? What Is Biodegradable? Biodegradable is a term we see a lot in the things we buy, from clothes to products such as soap. When used in this way, the term “biodegradable” typically means that the items will break down easily, quickly, and safely…

Sustainability, Social Responsibility, and Environmentalism in Industrial Filtration

It’s no secret that sustainability and fighting climate change have become the major focus and mission of many individuals and businesses these days. As local governments around the world begin to steadily increase their environmental-protection mandates, and consumers of all stripes continue to demand more sustainable solutions, many businesses in a variety of industries are focusing on implementing sustainability efforts into their product innovation practices. Similarly, investors around the world are becoming more interested in sustainability-focused businesses (for example, the enormous global financial and wealth management firm UBS has an entire field dedicated to this practice, as evidenced by their investor goals). The chemical and industrial filtration industry is just as influenced by this trend, and we here Advanced Filtration take it very seriously. Things are changing for the better, though, especially when it comes to the connection between product innovation and social responsibility in the chemical and industrial filtration industry. From implementing biodegradable products to taking advantage of the waste produced, our industry has found that creating much more efficient and beneficial products is a necessity in today’s age in the wake of the climate crisis. How Product Innovation can Positively Affect Sustainability, Social Responsibility, and Environmentalism These days,…
