New White Paper Published. As water utilities begin to explore digital solutions as a conduit to water and energy sustainability, GE Water & Process Technologies unveiled a new white paper, The Future of Water Management: A Menu for Policymakers in the Digital Industrial Era. The paper showcases how digital water solutions are proving their potential to transform the way utilities manage water treatment, distribution and usage and provides guidance for governments looking to accelerate the adoption of these solutions.
Authored by Jon Freedman, leader of global partnerships and policy for GE Water & Process Technologies and Geoffrey Dietz, an R. Michael Gadbaw Global Law & Policy Fellow supporting GE’s Global Governmental Affairs and Policy team, the white paper presents the major types of policies that promote adoption of digital water solutions. These policies include education and outreach; barrier removal; incentives as well as regulations and standards—offering a menu of policy options to help governments address their water resource and infrastructure needs through digital solutions. The paper also highlights examples of how various cities and countries around the world are beginning to adopt digital water solutions and technologies.
Certification for Colorado Facility. Measuring the levels of TOC in water is an important step for pharmaceutical companies to control processes that are critical to their operations and comply with regulations. Analytical Instruments, a division of GE Water & Process Technologies, announced that its Boulder facility (which manufacturers Sievers TOC Analyzers and corresponding consumables) recently received the highest combined accreditation standard in the industry for its reference material production.
The new ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025 certifications ensure manufactured reference materials are consistently produced, controlled and audited to robust quality standards. As a reference material producer, the ISO Guide 34 accreditation confirms Analytical Instruments’ processes are of the highest quality to produce the most consistent standards. It also shows that its certificates of analysis comply with strict guidelines and include all contributing factors to uncertainty.
ISO/IEC 17025 certifies the reliability of the testing performed in conjunction with reference material production. This accreditation confirms GE’s ability to produce precise, accurate test and calibration data with the instruments used to qualify each production lot. In addition to the new accreditations, Analytical Instruments’ quality to its customers is further enhanced as one of the only accredited TOC-certified reference material producers that cleans its own vials used in standards production, which enables more closely controlled processes and full traceability.
