    Mascara Renewable Water, a company specialising in water treatment using renewable energy, and Akuo Energy, leading French IPP in renewable energy, have signed a partnership agreement to develop projects combining green energy production and water production via solar desalination.

  6. UCI Chemists’ Solar-Powered Device Generates Electricity Through Ion Transport
    11/15/2017

    By binding photosensitive dyes to common plastic membranes and adding water, chemists at the University of California, Irvine have made a new type of solar power generator. The device is similar to familiar silicon photovoltaic cells but differs in a fundamental way: Instead of being produced via electrons, its electricity comes from the motion of ions.

  7. Saline Water Conversion Corporation And Hydraulic Institute Partner To Bring Pump Systems Optimization Training To Saudi Arabia
