Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Accurate Combustion Gas Measurement In Coal-Fired Power Plant
    10/27/2015

    The need for carbon monoxide equivalent (COe) monitoring in coal-fired power plants is increasing dramatically. A shift towards heat rate efficiency is occurring within the coal-fired boiler community. Increased competitiveness in electricity rates combined with indications of future limits expected by the EPA are driving the need to actively measure COe in order to improve combustion efficiency and minimize CO.

  2. Wood-Fired Biomass Power Generation Facility Uses
    Q-SEP® UF Membranes For Pretreatment
    6/27/2016

    The Gainesville Renewable Energy Center is a nominal 100 MW wood-fired biomass power generation facility located in Gainesville, FL. The plant provides about 30% of Gainesville Regional Utilities’ power, reducing the area’s dependence on energy from fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. The client contacted QUA to install their Q-SEP® UF membranes as pretreatment for the plant’s water treatment system.

  3. Compressor Installation Lowers Energy Needs By 18%
    8/7/2014

    RWE uses three-low pressure centrifugal compressors from Atlas Copco in the Ibbenbüren power plant to generate oxidation air for the flue gas desulphurization installation.

  4. A Roundup Of Energy, Water, And Climate Bills In The 84th Texas Legislative Session
    4/2/2015

    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. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Degassing Modules Improve Ice Production At The Ice Palace In Moscow
    8/10/2017

    An innovative approach to high quality ice production has been adopted by the new Ice Palace in Moscow.

  6. Nanofiltration And Membrane Degassing Successfully Reduce Water Hardness And Excess CO₂ From Drinking Water
    8/10/2017

    Municipal water services continually utilize improved technologies so that they can offer their customers higher water quality. Water can be improved by partially softening the water, which results in lower detergent consumption and lower scaling on kitchen utensils and water fittings.

  7. 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.

  8. El Paso Electric Should Protect The City’s Water And Let Solar Power Shine
    7/27/2017

    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.

  9. First-Of-Its-Kind Zero Liquid Discharge Plant Installed In Egypt
    12/30/2015

    The Egyptian Ethylene and Derivatives Company (ETHYDCO) is a joint venture company established with the purpose to produce Ethylene, Butadiene and their derivatives (Polyethylene, Poly Butadiene).

  10. Design-Build Using Actiflo Technology
    3/6/2015

    A state-of-the-art 695-MW power generation facility was recently installed in the Northeastern U.S. to serve the country’s highest demand market. Its innovative power generation technologies, emissions control systems and process efficiencies make it one of the cleanest, most efficient and technologically advanced supercritical pulverized coal (SPC) power plants in the U.S.
