  • Water reuse in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – status, prospects and research needs

    Saudi Arabia is one of the driest countries in the world. While desalination plants currently installed in the country represent 30% of the world's desalination capacity, seawater desalination alone will not be able to provide sufficient supplies to meet the increasing freshwater demand. However, with only 9% of the total municipal wastewater generated currently being ...

  • Can saltwater quench our growing thirst?

    An increasingly water-stressed world takes a new look at desalination. It seems simple enough: Take the salt out of water so it’s drinkable. But it’s far more complex than it appears at first glance. It’s also increasingly crucial in a world where freshwater resources are progressively strained by population growth, development, droughts, ...

  • Why Buyer Invest Titanium-Based Products

    Titanium is one of the most interesting elements in the world of chemistry today. It has the atomic symbol Ti and the atomic number 22. Since the 1950s, this element has been used extensively in many industrial applications. It is known for its high strength, low density and weight, as well as for its high anti-corrosion properties. Today, titanium products are quite common in the ...


  • Report: Energy industry sustainability efforts could save water

    Utilities, the oil and gas industry, and governments all use a lot of water. A recent report from Barclays Bank and the Columbia Water Center says that innovation by these organizations could help them become more efficient and sustainable, reducing their use of fresh water to better protect the valuable resource. According to the analysts, a focus on water management best practices could ...

  • Spiral-Wound Elements for Potable Water Treatment

    Introduction Any new technology must overcome perceptions of the marketplace, which are not accurate. As a technology moves into new areas of application, new misconceptions also arise. Crossflow membrane technology is no exception. The first man-made, pressure-driven 'crossflow' membranes were made in flat sheet form. This membrane had to be configured in a device, and was first made in ...
