Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Membrane Degassing and Debubbling of High Viscous Fluids with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors
    6/28/2017

    Increased gas content often leads to problems with bubble formation in highly viscous fluids. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors can provide a simple, compact, and efficient in-line solution for removing bubbles from viscous liquids before they create problems in a process operation.

  2. Selenium Removal Technologies: A Review
    1/15/2016

    Selenium, a contaminant of concern in industries such as mining, oil refining, and power generation, is removed from wastewater principally through either biological or chemical/physical processes. This article will describe those technologies, several technology providers, and other sources of information.

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

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

  6. Why Strategic Choices — And Water — Could Make People More Energy-Efficient
    1/9/2017

    At my household, a new year means a new energy and water-use baseline. By that I mean, every month, I look at how much electricity and water I used in comparison to the same month the previous year — so I can try to be as efficient as possible. But I work in the energy field, and I know that’s not a typical New Year’s tradition. Most people don’t examine the trends of their energy-use or spend much time thinking about how to reduce it.

  7. Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 3: Operation And Monitoring
    2/5/2019

    Reverse osmosis (RO) systems offer power plant owners and operators a reliable and well-proven water treatment solution. However, designing and caring for an RO system requires a thorough understanding of a plant’s water supply and the technology’s capabilities. The final article of this three-part series will address RO system operation and maintenance best practices.

  8. Predicting The Impact Of EPA’s Proposed Power Plant Effluent Limits
    5/21/2014

    The EPA has proposed a regulation  that, if passed,  would set the first federal limits on the levels of toxic metals in wastewater discharged from power plants in over three decades. 

  9. Hot CIP Sanitization Procedure For 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors In Stainless Steel Housings
    6/7/2017

    Hot Clean-In-Place (CIP) sanitization is commonly used to combat microbial growth in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. Performed frequently as a prevention strategy, hot water sanitization is a requirement for high purity water (HPW) for United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.).

  10. 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.
