  • Desalination plant in Egypt runs on wind & sun

    Fortis Wind Energy (NL) and Juwi Renewable (DE) install a 100kW hybrid system in Egypt. Egypt, the land of the pyramids, is known to us for its ancient culture and the last year because of the uprisings for more democracy. Egypt is less known for its large population (83 million) lives along the Nile (only 5.5% of the surface). The rest of the country is desert. The River Nile runs into Egypt ...

  • Inequitable allocation of deep community wells for reducing arsenic exposure in Bangladesh

    Community wells that extend deeper than most private wells are crucial for reducing exposure to groundwater arsenic (As) in rural Bangladesh. This study evaluates the impact on access to safe drinking water of 915 such intermediate (90–150 m) and deep (>150 m) wells across a 180 km2 area where a total of 48,790 tubewells were tested with field kits in 2012–13. Half the shallow private wells ...

  • Can trading pollution like stocks help fight climate change?

    The gas produced by hog manure at farms across the U.S. punches holes in the ozone layer, overheats the planet, and angers neighbors with its peculiar odor, a mix of rotten egg and ammonia. All that's needed to clear the air is to cover the manure with a system of tarps that captures the gas, but many farms don't do it because it's too expensive. "If you don't give people incentives to come up ...

  • Understanding social acceptability of arsenic-safe technologies in rural Bangladesh: a user-oriented analysis

    Contamination of shallow tube well drinking water by naturally occurring arsenic is a severe societal and human health challenge in Bangladesh. Multiple technological interventions seeking to ameliorate the problem face hurdles in securing social acceptance, i.e. the willingness of users to receive and use a technology. While most papers focus on expert understanding of social acceptability, ...

  • Indestructible Pumps for Clean Water

    Sulzer pumps are used in the production of drinking water in many cities around the world. The special qualities that these pumps possess can be seen at the Zurich Municipal Water Utility. There, the operators have to cope with rising land and energy prices and a challenging topography. A small water flea plays a major role in Zurich. It swims around in a container of drinking water with some of ...

  • Multi-criteria decision making methods for rural water supply: a case study from Bangladesh

    Multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) is a process of evaluating alternatives against relevant decision making criteria. Several methods are available to facilitate the evaluation steps. This paper deals with a rural water supply problem in the coastal areas of Bangladesh. Three different MCDM methods – weighted summation, analytical hierarchy process, and novel approach to imprecise ...

  • Case Study - Multilevel well system improved understanding of groundwater conditions in deep aquifers

    Westbay System delivered detailed data in less time and at a reduced cost CHALLENGE Characterizing the plume in a shallow  aquifer is simple, but investigating deeper  aquifers poses several challenges. SOLUTION MACTEC evaluated various monitoring  technologies and determined that  Westbay System modular ...


  • Humanitarian efforts application case studies

    Challenge A leading provider of safe drinking water to Haiti's under served communities through water kiosks had several water quality issues to deal with upon implementing their pilot program of 10 water kiosks. There was discussion of using surface water or deep well bore water, however, both were unsuitable for drinking water purposes due to microbiological and mineral contamination. ...

  • 'The new attractive mine': 36 research areas for attractive workplaces in future deep metal mining

    Future efficient mining operations will be dependent upon a highly competent and well motivated work force, on all levels. The mining companies will have to recruit their personnel from a limited group of talented individuals with high demands and expectations on future work. In order to be successful with this, the companies must offer attractive workplaces that are safe, sound, interesting and ...

  • More to Scrubber Pumps than Meets the Eye

    One component, in particular, needs to be carefully selected to ensure safe and efficient sulphur removal. The time is now Shipowners are having to move fast to change fuel type to distillate fuel or LNG, or to install the exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGC systems) known as scrubbers. They’re reacting to new sulphur emission legislation set to come into force in designated ...
