  • Small-scale desalination

    A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable desalination units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries. As well as removing many contaminants, these units could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village. The new approach, called ion concentration polarisation, is described in a paper ...


  • Preventing Scaling In Heat Exchangers

    Hard water scaling is a serious problem in all kinds of process equipment .. particularly plate type heat exchangers. Papertech in Spain is a leading paper manufacturer and the water used in their factory is a very hard well water. The engineers knew when they installed a plate type heat exchanger that the exchanger would scale up as the water hardness exceeded 500mgl. They decided to ...

  • France scales back lorry toll

    France’s Assemblée Nationale approved a scaled-down toll for lorries, which will do little to improve logistics efficiency as well as lorries’ environmental and health impacts. The decision goes against a wider trend of expanding or introducing ambitious lorry km-charging schemes in other countries like Germany, Poland, Austria and Belgium. The original plan was to cover a ...
