  1. QUA UF Membranes Provide Pretreatment for Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) System
    12/1/2015

    Hinduja National Power Corporation Ltd. (HNPCL) constructed a 1040 MW coal fired power plant at Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India. The power generated from the plant is intended to supply to Andhra Pradesh, as well as to other states through interstate transmission system.

  2. Israel: Cutting-Edge Technology From An Ancient World
    11/13/2015

    As I recently traveled to Israel for the 2015 Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition (WATEC), I couldn’t help but feel the ancient history that defines so much of this country. How ironic that my travels were focused on visiting Israel to be enriched not by the past, but to map out our future… to be enriched by a world leader in cutting-edge water technology! 

  3. Potable Reuse Gets A Taste Of The Charles River
    10/5/2015

    It was named by the infamous explorer Captain John Smith after the Massachusett tribe of Native Americans, then subsequently renamed by King Charles I of England after himself. As Boston grew, the mighty Charles River proved a vital force behind its expansion, and its long and winding history a reflection of the city’s own.

  4. U.S. Drought Reshapes Thinking On Water Solutions
    9/1/2015

    California’s drought, increasing water consumption, and improving technology costs are sparking deployment of more advanced municipal and industrial solutions to address water stress across the U.S. The epicenter of change is across the U.S. Sunbelt, where wastewater reuse and desalination have been thrust into the spotlight as key solutions. 

  5. Changxing Power Plant Debuts The World’s First Forward Osmosis-Based Zero Liquid Discharge Application

    Desalination Technology Transforms 650 m3/day of Abused Industrial Wastewater

  6. A Preview Of IDA World Congress 2015
    8/19/2015

    From August 30 to September 4, the International Desalination Association (IDA) will be hosting its biennial world congress in San Diego. 

  7. ED vs. RO: The Benefits Of Electrodialysis For Desalination
    8/11/2015

    There is no doubt that reverse osmosis (RO) currently reigns among desalination techniques, if your metric is total number of installations. But a new competitor has arisen, at least for particular applications. If you have brackish water in the 2,000 to 15,000 ppm range of total dissolved solids (TDS), you may want to consider electrodialysis (ED) over RO.

  8. Desalination Serves Coastal Argentine City
    6/30/2015

    When a series of water crises in 2014 disrupted conventional utility services in the coastal Argentine city of Caleta Olivia, the city needed a way to ensure an uninterrupted water supply.

  9. Innovative Options For Brackish And Wastewater RO Concentrate Disposal
    6/1/2015

    In an era of inspired recycling and enviable reuse of industrial and manufacturing byproducts, the water treatment industry continues to search for innovative disposal options or, better yet, viable secondary use options for high TDS (total dissolved solids) RO (reverse osmosis) concentrate streams

  10. Keeping Innovation Afloat: The Desal Prize
    5/8/2015

    During the week of April 6th, five teams of engineers, innovators, and water experts convened at the Bureau of Reclamation’s Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility in New Mexico to compete in the Desal Prize.
