Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Selecting An Envirnomentally Friendly Zero Liquid Discharge System

    Mississippi Power Company had a wide range of environmental considerations when they set out to choose a builder for a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant. Aquatech was selected due to the company’s proven success in providing cost-effective, environmentally-focused water treatment solutions for the power industry. This case study provides details and technical specifications on the system selected.

  2. If We Don’t Talk About Water, Are We Really Talking About Resiliency?

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry is trying to prop up coal and nuclear companies under the guise of enhanced “resiliency.” The Department of Energy’s (DOE) proposal does not define resiliency, nor does it even make clear what resiliency means in the context of the electric grid.

  3. Eliminate CIP And Cut Wastewater Disposal In Half With CCD

    A high water recovery rate is essential for this well-known soy protein manufacturer.

  4. A Roundup Of Energy, Water, And Climate Bills In The 84th Texas Legislative Session

    We’ve almost made it to the midway point of the 84th Session of the Texas Legislature. As many already know, the Texas Legislature only meets from January to May every other year, so a lot has to get done in these few months.

  5. Biogas Flow Measurement Challenges And Solutions

    KROHNE has successfully deployed its flowmeter solutions for many applications throughout the world to deal specifically with the growing demands for accurate biogas flow measurement in a wide and seasonally varying operational range. Here are two specific stories that highlight the applications’ challenges and the resulting benefits. By Rich Lowrie , KROHNE, Inc, and Joerg Holtmann, KROHNE Messtechnik, GmbH

  6. Achieving Ultrapure Water

    It may sound intimidating, but water that has been treated to “ultrapure” condition is more than necessary in many applications. This highly-cleansed product is a fundamental part of many industrial operations, from the medicine we need to get well to the power we rely on in our daily lives. But, as the name implies, it’s no small task to get average influent to the ultrapure level.

  7. Increase Ink Jet Print Speeds By 15% With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors

    Many high-speed, wide-format ink jet printer manufacturers are now using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors to remove air bubbles and excess gases from ink to reduce downtime and improve yields. Entrained bubbles and excess gases are often the cause of printing surface defects and ink flow interruptions that can cause printer shut-downs.

  8. The Power Of Reclaimed Water

    The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.

  9. El Paso Electric Should Protect The City’s Water And Let Solar Power Shine

    Resiliency is a hot button word right now. Ten years ago, advocates focused on “adaptation,” or the idea of adapting to the coming effects of climate change. Now the focus is on “resiliency,” the ability to bounce forward — not backward — when something disastrous happens.

  10. Holistic Energy-Water Planning: Hedging Your Bets In A Water-Stressed World

    You probably have some sort of insurance – for your healthcare, car, house, or apartment. Acting on climate change is also like insurance. It is all about managing the risks.
