  • Oil in Power Plant Wastewater

    The water is from the operations of a steam power plant located in the Bahamas. The water samples were taken from the Unit 31 (lower oil content) and Tank #3 (a higher oil content). The samples were tested and it was found through the jartesting procedures that the Floccin K was the best choice for floc size and water clarity. The Unit 31 was dosed at 0.5 gram in 1,000 ml and the Tank # 3 water ...

For the gasification process, Demkolec selected Shell. The plant, the world’s largest, is located next to the existing Maascentrale power station ...

  • Why Closing a Power Plant Could Be Part of Austin`s Water Solution

    The funny thing about Walter E. Long Lake is that most people don't know it exists. The lake, tucked into a rural-feeling part of Northeast Austin is big, by Austin standards. It can hold more water than Austin's two central city lakes -- Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake -- combined. It was created to host a power plant, which it's done for for nearly 50 years. That's how it got its other name: ...

  • Water for Cooling Thermoelectric Power Plants in the Great Lakes Basin is an Undervalued Resource

    Water availability is critical to power generation: Without access to adequate amounts of water for cooling, power plants that rely on heat energy to generate electricity cannot operate. In the U.S., population growth and increasing incidents of drought are challenging the sustainability of water supplies needed for power generation. In the face of potential water shortages caused by increased ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of a supercritical power plant

    Energy and exergy efficiencies of a supercritical power plant have been studied in this paper. The effect of ambient weather condition was considered on the condenser pressure. It was shown that high ambient temperature has more adverse effect on the exergy efficiency than the energy efficiency. As ambient temperature increases, the exergy efficiency of the boiler, condenser, heaters and feed ...

  • Method to determine the power efficiency of UV disinfection plants and its application to low pressure plants for drinking water

    In this paper we present a method to determine the power efficiency of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection plants and apply this to low pressure plants for drinking water. In UV disinfection plants the water flow is regulated to ensure that microorganisms receive the necessary fluence for inactivation while passing through. The flow depends on the UV transmission (UVT) of the water. The lower the ...
