  • 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 ...

  • MagCAT solves tough scale problems

    Fluid Dynamics International has launched MagCAT, which uses powerful magnets that are encased in poleheads manufactured out of the same metal that is used for the catalytic core of Fluid Dynamics' Colloid-A-Tron. The calcium carbonate particles which are formed when hard water is heated remain in suspension after this magnetic treatment instead of precipitating as scale on pipework and heat ...


  • 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 ...

  • Green Scale Prevention Technology Scores Success at Honda

    Honda in Thailand had a significant problem with scale building up in its pipework. This scale, caused by hard water, had the effect of reducing the diameter of the pipework forcing pumps to pump harder in order to pump the required volume of water through the reduced pipe diameter. The scale acted as an insulator as well reducing the efficiency of heat exchangers in the circuit. Honda decided ...
