Chariots Of Water: Decentralised Desalination In Africa

Chariots of water Chariot, a clean energy provider focusing on Africa, has acquired Singapore-based company, Eneo Water PTE, to install decentralised renewable energy water desalination systems in Africa. Eneo Water PTE has developed modular and scalable decentralised desalination systems that can be deployed in remote areas, such as Africa. It comes after Chariot recently signed one of the largest green hydrogen projects in Africa, the Nour project. Chariot said it intends to provide affordable access to water for private off-takers and municipalities in Africa, as part of its commitment to socially responsible development. The development is part of the plant to originate, invest in and own decentralised water supply projects, where the water is produced through renewable energy so it

Pulmuone Announces Completion of Wastewater Treatment Plant at California Production Facility

Pulmuone, the largest tofu company in the world and makers of America's leading brands including Nasoya and Wildwood, today announces the completion of a new wastewater treatment plant at its Fullerton, Calif. facility. In partnership with Tomorrow Water, a water and wastewater solutions provider with patented innovative unit technologies, fully integrated processes and complete design-build turnkey constructed systems, the infrastructure now removes up to 85% of pollutants from water byproduct and will reduce the environmental impact on the Orange County community by purifying over 3.5 million onsite gallons of water annually. Pulmuone initiated this project with Tomorrow Water approximately three years ago as part of its longstanding commitment to sustainability and social

Better Solutions for Reverse Osmosis Flow Measurement

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the process of running raw water through a system of membrane sheets that filter out suspended and dissolved particulates such as bacteria, salt, and other effluent materials, producing pure water as well as undesirable concentrate water. Reverse osmosis flow is often used in metals and mining, food and beverage, power generation, semiconductor electronics, pharmaceuticals, and saltwater disposal wells for oil and gas, marine, hospitals, and drinking water treatment applications. Engineers and plant managers concerned with operational efficiency need to know the quantities of raw water intake and pure water production from their reverse osmosis processes. It often requires a significant amount of power to run a reverse osmosis application, so having a consistent and

Water Desalination Market, Global Forecast 2019 to 2029

Desalination is a process that involves removing contaminants and excess salts from water in order to render it suitable for usage in a variety of contexts. This makes the water suitable for consumption as well. This method is able to purify brackish water, seawater, and wastewater, among other types of water. One of

How Does Desalination Work?

Water desalination is the process of removing minerals from seawater or brackish water. It works by removing the salt from the water, leaving clean water behind. There are several kinds of water desalination processes, including reverse osmosis, thermal distillation, and electrodialysis. Reverse osmosis pushes the

Access To Water in Remote Sites 1st program in Vanuatu for Mascara NT

On the occasion of its participation at the "Pacific Water and Wastewater Conference" from November 14 to 18, 2022*, Mascara NT, a French company specialized in innovative water treatment solutions with the use of renewable energies, launches its first water access program for remote communities in Vanuatu. Unprecedented in this region, this program, implemented with the Department of Water Ressource of Vanuatu in the framework of the National Water Strategy, allows to sustainably supply 6 isolated island communities with safe drinking water. A total of eight solar-powered OSMOSUN® desalination units will be delivered, with two additional units to be supplied as mobile solutions and intended for emergency situations.

Swiss Water Research At The UN Summit In New York

The UN Water Conference will be held in New York from 22 -24 March 2023. In addition to Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, Eawag researchers will also be present. Together with partners, the conference presents a commitment that contributes to the 2030 Water Action Plan. It will also illustrate with projects how research approaches can be directly applied in practice through multilateral cooperation. One of these approaches is the Water Flow Diagram (WFD), which was developed under the lead of Eawag. In collaboration with partners, Eawag researchers have developed the WFD - a visualisation tool for identifying relevant water problems in a city. By illustrating all water flows in a holistic WFD, both the whole water system and the individual water flows can be better analysed and

Smart Standpipes Close Leakage Reporting Gaps

More precise monitoring of water supply networks via smart standpipes is making evidence-based data readily available, closing reporting gaps and giving a clearer picture of network activity, says Kevin Brook, director of Orbis. UK water companies saw a sharp increase in water usage during the record temperatures in summer 2022, but newly available data shows that much of that can be attributed to third parties abstracting water from hydrants. Orbis’s innovative SmartStandpipes, which are hired by organisations such as councils, drainage specialists, construction companies and event organisers, recorded a 24% overall increase in water usage from 1 April 2022 to 1 October 2022, compared to same period last year. Smart standpipe water usage peaked in August 2022, doubling in some regions,

Water Industry Innovations in 2018

As the human population of the world continues to grow rapidly, bridging the gap between supply and demand and providing access to safe, clean water has become a priority and a strategic imperative that must be continuously addressed. Thus, there is a clear need to seek out fresh ideas and new approaches to deal with the challenges of dwindling natural water supplies. Whilst there is still some methods to follow, advances in science and technology are helping to bridge this gap and drive the industry forward. The goal of many of these advances is to enhance sustainability and efficiency of production whilst reducing power usage and wastage to a minimum throughout water infrastructure networks. And the advances that will reach success will be scalable, at low cost, and ecologically

Desalination to the Rescue

The world has very little fresh water and it is running out. At tens of billions of tons yearly, the fresh water of the ice caps is falling into the salty sea which is already 97 percent of the world’s water. Rising sea levels will cause mayhem with the supplies of most of the world’s cities because they sit low down
