  • Fabrication of titanium carburizing electrodes for capacitive deionization

    Titanium carburizing electrodes were used as the electrodes in a capacitive deionization (CDI) process for desalination in this study. Two methods of high vacuum magnetron sputtering and chemical deposition were used for the preparation of nano-titanium carburizing electrodes (named Ti-C* and Ti-C**). By comparing the adsorption capacities of different kinds of electrode material, combined ...

  • Seawater Desalination

    Seawater covers 71% of the planet surface and represents 97% of the world's water,and seawater has a lot of resources to be explored.Along with recycled wastewater, it is one of the few rainfall-independent water sources.However,in the current condition,seawater cannot be used directly because of the high salinity.To solve it,many methods of desalination are adopted. Desalination is a process ...

  • Developing a Culture of “Revulsion”: Singapore Tackles Water Wastage

    Singapore is an interesting place. As a city-state it occupies a very small amount of land area, about 700 square kilometers. Packed into this space are 5.6 million people working in one of the world’s strongest economies. A big part of the economy is based on manufacturing and oil refining. Both of these sectors are intensive water users. Because of this, water availability is a big issue. ...

  • Brackish groundwater desalination on the rise

    Brackish water is water that is more saline than fresh. It’s not quite as saline as seawater, but it’s still too salty to be used without treatment. Typically, advanced treatment technologies — reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, as well as other membrane-based technologies — are needed to purify and desalinate brackish groundwater before its use. Brackish groundwater ...
