Biodos & Waterland Reverse Osmosis ZLD for Reject Water Kazakhstan Project

The technological advancement in applications of membrane processes was efficiently explored in recent decades due to huge demand for potable water. However, relatively little improvements have been reported in the management and handling of the major by-product, called reject water or brine. The disposal or management of desalination brine (concentrate) is expensive and faces major environmental challenges. In spite of the scale of this economic and environmental problem, the options for brine management have been limited. This brief review presents an overview of the existing methods on brine treatment, minimization, and disposal practices based on the newest and most updated technologies. Processes capable of reducing the concentrate, either directly from the conventional RO or the

Desalination Industry: Where Does Certification Fit?

Droughts continue to force water conservation efforts in communities throughout the United States and across the globe. To meet water demands, even during drought conditions, communities close to seawater are considering or turning to seawater desalination. Through this process, water sources such as the Pacific Ocean have been called “drought proof.”

Nanoporous Carbon Electrodes Harvest Blue Energy

Blue energy, which is the free energy lost when salty sea water and less salty river water meet and mix in estuaries, could become a significant source of global electricity in the future. Capacitive mixing, an up-and-coming technique that exploits the charge-discharge cycle of capacitors can be used to harvest this

Treated vs. Untreated Cooling Tower Water: Risks for Your Plant

When an industrial facility might require a cooling tower water treatment system, it is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Petrochemical plants, chemical manufacturers, refineries, and all kinds of large buildings and facilities using cooling towers, whether they’re used as part of the industrial process or

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 near the sea. Much of India’s water table drops around 0.3 meters a year. Why? Growing population. The barren farms of Syria show what happens when you extract all the ground water. Recycling of water is practiced only by a tiny percentage of the world’s countries. All this means that desalination gets more competitive even if its cost stays still: the competition such as cleaning river water or lakes or sucking up dying aquifers is either disappearing or getting more

Saudi Water Desalination Capacity Sets Global Record

The process to separate salt and other minerals from the sources including sea, brackish, and river are carried out by desalination equipment. Its primary components compromise of valves, actuated valves, energy recovery unit, pumps, connecting hoses, filtration unit, and separators. The global water desalination equipment market size was estimated at USD11.58 billion in 2016 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.1 percent over the next eight years. Increasing water concerns and usages of aqua resources by rising population is expected to drive the market over the forecast period according to Grand View Research.

Portable Water Bottles Trending in the UAE

Product Focus - Pumps & Flow Meters

Submersible Pumps Pump Up the Market

Jets and pumps share a similar function, but the growth of the submersible pumps market is expected to grow owing high demand. Pumps have proved to be more efficient and practical despite having the same function as jets. Submersible pumps are preferred as they do not need suction techniques that are required by jet pumps to pull the liquid. In fact, submersible pumps use direct water pressure to bring the water to the surface. Infrastructural and agricultural development alongside growing urbanization and industrialization have led to the increase in demand for pumps. Demand for submersible pumps is expected to remain significant from agriculture and wastewater treatment industries throughout the forecast period.
