Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Benefits Of Clean Power Plan Are Measureable – Drop For Drop
    10/17/2014

    Since EPA released its proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) in June of this year, the plan has been a hot topic in every state.

  2. Droughts And Blackouts: How Water Shortages Cost India Enough Energy To Power Sri Lanka
    7/28/2017

    India is making great strides to aggressively expand its renewable energy capacity. But the country's power sector remains highly reliant on thermoelectric plants, with high demand for water for cooling. That means that droughts, like the one caused last year by weak monsoons, can shut off the power, hampering the economy and potentially endangering lives.

  3. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactor Technology Being Evaluated For Dissolved Gas Removal From Water In Many Hydrocarbon Processes
    6/28/2017

    The oil and gas industry has utilized various deaeration technologies for many years to remove dissolved gases, particularly oxygen, from injection water. In many hydrocarbon recovery and water processes, degassing is necessary in order to minimize environmental impact, improve operating efficiency, avoid process issues and help protect system components.

  4. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Are Widely Used In The Soft Drink And Brewing Industries To Control Dissolved Gasses
    7/10/2017

    Gas control is an important concern in the beverage industry. Oxygen in the water can oxidize flavor components and shorten the shelf life of the product. Carbon dioxide can also have an impact on taste and pH of the product.

  5. A Cool Method For Industrial Water Reuse
    4/3/2017

    By harvesting heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) condensate, industrial operations can take advantage of a cool, convenient source of clean water.

  6. 4 Safety Considerations For Anyone Storing, Handling, or Transporting Substances
    3/25/2014

    Substances regulated or substances unregulated may ultimately impact the environment, health, and water supply of others. The following safety considerations are advised for those who store, handle, or transport potentially dangerous substances.

  7. Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead And Alive
    7/17/2017

    Water is the lifeblood of electrical power plants, whether they are water-cooled steam plants or turbine-spinning hydroelectric installations. Regardless of how the facility generates electricity, there is a growing awareness that each power plant is part of its own, unique industrial watershed — drawing water from the environment, altering its contents and temperature, releasing some to the atmosphere as steam, and returning the rest to receiving waters.

  8. FGD Purge Treatment In Coal-Fired Power Generation
    3/6/2015

    Stricter environmental policies and regulations worldwide are changing how industry approaches all aspects of business. Likewise, EU (European Union) environmental policies governing air, soil, and water quality have become progressively stringent.

    These policy changes affect the power industry’s balance of meeting growing European energy demands with compliance to environmental standards. In order to conform with EU standards specific for flue gas, a coalfired generation plant (at the time owned by Endesa, Italia, S.p.A.) in Monfalcone, Italy, undertook the measure of installing a state-of-the-art FGD (flue gas desulfurization) system at their facility. This system would remove SO2 (sulfur dioxide) from the emissions for the 336 MW coal-fired power station.

    Are you prepared to keep services up and running if the grid goes down?

  10. Holistic Energy-Water Planning: Hedging Your Bets In A Water-Stressed World
    4/22/2016

    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.
