  • Effects of drinking desalinated seawater on cell viability and proliferation

    Desalination of seawater is becoming an important means to address the increasing scarcity of freshwater resources in the world. Seawater has been used as drinking water in the health, food, and medical fields and various beneficial effects have been suggested, although not confirmed. Given the presence of 63 minerals and trace elements in drinking desalinated seawater (63 DSW), we evaluated ...

  • Investigation and control of seawater intrusion in the Eastern Nile Delta aquifer considering climate change

    Seawater intrusion is considered one of the main processes that degrade water quality by raising salinity. Over-pumping and decreasing recharge are considered the main causes of saltwater intrusion. Moreover, climate change and sea-level rise accelerate saltwater intrusion. In this paper SEAWAT code was used to study groundwater flow and seawater intrusion in the Eastern Nile Delta aquifer ...

  • Disinfection effect of pressurized carbon dioxide on Escherichia coli and Enterococcus sp. in seawater

    Ship ballast water should be disinfected before being discharged into the ocean to avoid the dispersal of non-native species into the marine environment. This study presents the results of using pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) at less than 1.0 MPa for inactivating Escherichia coli and Enterococcus sp. in artificial seawater (3.4% salinity). The bactericidal ...

  • Climate Change & Health

    The heat accumulating in the earth (mostly in the oceans) because of manmade emissions into the atmosphere is roughly equal to the heat of 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs exploding across the planet EVERY DAY.1 As a physician involved in environmental medicine for over 40 years, I certainly agree with the World Health Organization that climate change is the most significant ...

  • YWP Weinrich perspective on RO membrane biofouling reduction

    Seawater desalination using reverse osmosis is an important part of a community’s water portfolio in coastal areas experiencing water scarcity. However, desalination using RO is expensive in part because of the costly challenges that arise from fouling on the RO membranes. Specifically, biological fouling emerged as the most poorly managed of the different types of fouling. My literature ...

  • Isolation of high-salinity-tolerant bacterial strains, Enterobacter sp., Serratia sp., Yersinia sp., for nitrification and aerobic denitrification under cyanogenic conditions

    Cyanides (CN−) and soluble salts could potentially inhibit biological processes in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), such as nitrification and denitrification. Cyanide in wastewater can alter metabolic functions of microbial populations in WWTPs, thus significantly inhibiting nitrifier and denitrifier metabolic processes, rendering the water treatment processes ineffective. In this study, ...

  • Simulation of seawater intrusion in the Nile Delta aquifer under the conditions of climate change

    The problem of seawater intrusion is encountered in almost all coastal aquifers. Because of its higher density, the seawater migrates inland into freshwater aquifers even without any pumping activities. Excessive pumping of groundwater would accelerate seawater intrusion. Climate change and sea level rise represent critical parameters affecting the rate and degree of seawater intrusion. In ...

  • Mitigation of marine biofouling on tubes of open rack vaporizers using electromagnetic fields

    This study quantitatively evaluates the antifouling action of the continuous physical treatment with electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of seawater used as heat exchanger fluid in an open rack vaporizer (ORV) pilot plant to reduce the growth of biofouling on external rib-tube surfaces. The results demonstrate that the biofilm adhered on the treated rib-tubes was reduced by 33% in thickness and by ...

  • Results from 99 seawater ro membrane autopsies

    Abstract This paper presents results from 99 sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) membrane autopsies carried out by the Genesys laboratory in Madrid from 2002 and outlines the technical issues surrounding fouling and scaling of sea water membranes. The authors discuss historical results of membrane autopsies and link recent trends and changes in plant design to potential fouling and ...

  • Desalination of simulated seawater by purge-air pervaporation using an innovative fabricated membrane

    An innovative polymeric membrane has been invented, which presents a breakthrough in the field of desalination membranes. It can desalinate simulated seawater of exceptionally high concentration to produce a high flux of potable water with over 99.7% salt rejection (%SR) in a once-through purge-air pervaporation (PV) process. A set-up was constructed for conducting the desalination ...

  • Bioconcentration and depuration of 14C‐labeled 17‐α‐ethinyl estradiol and 4‐nonylphenol in individual organs of the marine bivalve, Mytilus edulis L.

    Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs), including 17‐α‐ethinyl estradiol (EE2) and 4‐nonylphenol (4‐NP), enter coastal environments primarily in effluents of wastewater treatment facilities, and have become ubiquitous in marine surface waters, sediments and biota. Although EE2 and 4‐NP have been detected in marine shellfish, the kinetics of bioconcentration and their tissue distribution have ...

  • Pumps for the Booming FPSO Sector

    In the last few years, several new offshore oil fields have been discovered. The current findings from Petrobras and other companies in the pre-salt province, located in the Brazilian continental shelf, suggest reserves of over 50 billion barrels of oil. Extracting the pre-salt oil is challenging and done increasingly with floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs). Sulzer offers a ...
