  • Membrane Distillation and Applications for Water

    SummaryWater treatment is an important auxiliary process in all thermal cogeneration plants. In this context membrane distillation (MD) is a novel technology that is potentially advantageous to technologies like reverse osmosis in the following ways: ability to utilize low-grade heat, reduced sensitivity to fluctuations in pH or salt concentrations, and lower capital and O&M costs. This ...

  • Distillation treatment and removal of contaminants from drinking water

    Distillation treatment typically removes most of the dissolved materials. In addition, the boiling process kills biological contaminants. Nevertheless, there are certain volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds that may not be removed by distillation (CDPH 2009). Organic compounds that boil at temperatures greater than the boiling point of water (some pesticides) can be effectively removed ...

  • Osmotic distillation using Liqui-Cel® membrane contactors

    Osmotic distillation — a separation process in which a liquid mixture containing a volatile component is contacted with a microporous, non-liquid-wettable membrane whose opposite surface is exposed to a second liquid phase capable of absorbing that component — is nearing commercialization for the concentration of beverages and other liquid foodstuffs, and is ...

  • Desalination of brackish groundwater by direct contact membrane distillation

    The direct contact membrane distillation (DCMD) applied for desalination of brackish groundwater with self-made polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membranes was presented in the paper. The PVDF membrane exhibited high rejection of non-volatile inorganic salt solutes and a maximum permeate flux 24.5 kg m−2 h−1 was obtained with feed temperature at 70°C. The DCMD experimental results indicated that the ...

  • Landfill and Energy: A possible Combination Leachate and Distillation - Case Study

    Leachate is a product derived from the anaerobic transformation of the organic substances present in the waste. It is a liquid with different levels of pollutants present, the form and quantity of which will depend on factors such as the type of landfill, and the quantity of rainwater which filters through the landfill, mixing with the humidity of the waste itself. Due to the high level of ...

  • Influence of the reflux ratio in a distillation column in the unsaturated polyester resins process

    The Mexican chemical industry is facing new standards of ecological protection regulated by SEMARNAP (Department of Social Development) and norms imposed by SE (Department of Energy) that require the industry to adjust their processes to use the minimum amount of energy. In particular, the industries that create polyester resins from glycols generate streams of polluted liquids, which are causing ...

  • Distillation Process Can Yield Zero Liquid Discharge System

    Many industrial applications produce liquid waste as a by-product of their process. As environmental regulations governing the disposal of industrial wastewater become more stringent, it's imperative that innovative wastewater treatment solutions are used to treat this waste and minimize the environmental impact of disposal. While numerous technologies exist to treat industrial wastewater, Zero ...

  • Thermodynamic modelling of a membrane distillation crystallisation process for the treatment of mining wastewater

    Membrane distillation (MD) could be applicable in zero liquid discharge applications. This is due to the fact that MD is applicable at high salinity ranges which are generally outside the scope of reverse osmosis (RO) applications, although this requires proper management of precipitating salts to avoid membrane fouling. One way of managing these salts is with MD crystallisation (MDC). This ...

  • Water reclamation from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid using a novel forward osmosis–vacuum membrane distillation hybrid system

    This study examined the performance of a novel hybrid system of forward osmosis (FO) combined with vacuum membrane distillation (VMD) for reclaiming water from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid (SGDF). In the hybrid FO-VMD system, water permeated through the FO membrane into a draw solution reservoir, and the VMD process was used for draw solute recovery and clean water production. Using a SGDF ...
