  • Exergetic analysis of passive and active solar stills

    This paper presents an exergetic analysis for passive and active solar distillation systems. The analysis is based on mass, energy and exergy balance equations, which has not been attempted in the past for active solar stills. In the present paper, it has been tried to compare the hourly exergy and thermal efficiency of passive and active solar stills. The values of hourly exergy and thermal ...

  • Carbon credits earned from a double slope active solar still under forced circulation mode

    Human life on land is vitally dependent on fresh water along with food and air. Many areas in the world do not have access to fresh water. Growing demands of freshwater resources are creating an urgent need to develop self sustained system to meet the demand. At present, many distillation methods are available like reverse osmosis, thin film distillation multi-effect fresh evaporation but they ...

  • Thermal modelling, validation and exergetic analysis of a hybrid Photovoltaic/Thermal (PV/T) active solar still

    This paper presents the thermal analysis of a self sustainable, new design of hybrid photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) active solar distillation system. The experiments were conducted for 24 h (7am-7am) for the New Delhi (India) climatic conditions on typical days during the month of April 2006 for water at different depths (i.e., 0.05, 0.10, 0.15 m) in order to validate the experimental results, a ...

  • Genwest silverhawk power plant in nevada to install brine concentrator system

    The Facility The 570-Megawatt Silverhawk Power Station is a natural gas-fired combined cycle electric generating station located in Clark County 20 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada. In order to meet the permitting requirements and conserve water, the facility uses a dry cooling arrangement. The project was constructed by Lockwood Greene acting as EPC under the project management ...

  • Two proposals for unlimited fresh water

    The world water crisis may be more serious than generally appreciated. One reason for this is that the main response has been to increase storage of rain rather than to increase the amount of fresh water. Another is that fossil groundwater has been widely seen as inexhaustible. Two fresh water collecting systems are outlined here and it is argued that they have no ultimate limitation, either by ...

  • Middle east installation employs brine concentrator

    The Facility Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is an oil exploration and production company located in the Middle East. PDO needed high purity water to feed the oil field steam generator at their new enhanced oil recovery facility at Qarn Alam located in the Oman interior. Aqua-Chem ICD, together with PDO’s consultant, recognized that conventional seawater desalination equipment was ...

  • Producing drinking water from seawater with waste energy

    German firm Taprogge and ESACO (Vietnam) are jointly investing in seawater desalination technology in the country. The Saigon Times Daily had a talk with Detlef Taprogge, CEO of Taprogge, about the Taprogge Terrawater Technology during a recent demonstration of a system using this tech in HCMC’s Can Gio District. Excerpts: The Saigon Times Daily: What is the specific of this ...

  • Start up of Indonesian Cinnamon Plant employs screen classifying cutter, rotary mixer

    Starting up a new process plant can be a tricky business for any company, but when it is the first plant the company has ever built and the location is halfway around the world from equipment suppliers, the project can be daunting. So it was with ForesTrade, Inc., when it set about building Indonesia's first state-of-the-art organic cinnamon-processing plant and an associated essential oils plant ...

  • How to treat radioactive NORM sludge with VacuDry

    NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the ...

  • P2 for SMEs: How to advance pollution prevention in small and medium-sized organizations

    Businesses in the small- and medium-sized enterprise sector are a vital part of the Canadian economy. So-called 'SME' firms have less than 500 employees and less than $50-million in annual revenues. But SMEs are the fastest growing facet of the Canadian economy, and as such are especially important to the successful adoption of pollution prevention (referred to as 'P2' in government circles). SME ...

  • A Path To Sustainable Infrastructure Solutions

    Today, for the most part, our communities’ infrastructure systems are developed and managed separately, by separate utilities and agencies. Sustainable infrastructure, on the other hand, blurs boundaries between our energy, transportation, water and waste systems to implement complementary strategies that benefit more than one system. Among our most important, and difficult, challenges will ...

  • Latest analytical technology ensures biogas efficiency

    Anaerobic Digestion (AD) relies on the ability of specific micro-organisms to convert organic material into a gas that can be used to generate electricity. However, these bacteria require specific conditions if they are to function effectively and instrumentation specialist company HACH LANGE has developed a range of online, portable and laboratory instruments that have enabled a large number of ...


  • Industrial Biotechnology - ASTM Organizes New Technical Committee

    With a total population of nearly 7.2 billion people, and a new birth every eight seconds, our modest planet is straining at the seams. Finding ways to maximize the sustainability of the resources that support us all is of critical importance. One such effort falls under the general heading of industrial biotechnology, which is based on a fascinating premise: that ...
