  • Technical and economic evaluation of an off-grid solar desalination system in Myanmar

    Myanmar is a unique country where the majority of the people live in rural areas, away from grid electricity and reliable water supplies. The penetration of grid electricity in rural areas is minimal and even then it is often erratic. This paper focuses on the challenges of transitioning from an electricity-poor country to a renewable energy based-economy augmented with photovoltaics (PV). ...

  • What Is Zero Liquid Discharge and How Does It Work?

    Not every industrial facility that produces wastewater will require zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is usually looked to as a last resort because it can be a complex process that requires a high initial investment. If a facility is located on a site that has severe water scarcity issues and/or astronomical discharge fees, it might be ...

  • What is a Spectrometer?

    The characteristics of a white LED light differs greatly, when compared to a yellow CFL. Without any special tools, one can see that the LED emits a clear white color, while the CFL generates yellow light. Going one step further, using a spectrometer, one will be able to “dissect” the light sources and see that they are composed of other colors in the visible light spectrum, such as ...

  • Avoiding the Power Grid with Renewable Energy

    For approximately one hundred years, thriving countries have been dependent on only one form of distributing power; electricity sent over large transmission grids from plants generating electricity, to customers in businesses, homes, and factories.  Generators extract energy from rooftop solar panels, garbage, and sewage, which replace or assist coal, nuclear, and natural gas plants. A ...
