White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Kirin Beer Uses 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For CO2 and O2 Removal to Prevent Pipe Corrosion at Three of Their Japanese Breweries
    6/28/2017

    In the food and beverage industry, there is a growing awareness of environmental considerations wherever chemicals are used. In response, companies are trending towards alternative systems that operate with less chemical usage.

  2. Thermal Mass Flow Meter Supports Feedback Control Loop In Boiler System For Thermal Electric Power Generation
    12/6/2017

    To meet China’s growing need for electric power generation, the Guohua Ninghai Power Plant has a total planned operating capacity of 4 x 600 MW [Phase 1]. The plant is located south of Shanghai in Ninghai township, Ningbo city, Zhejiang province and serves the electric power needs in the region.

  3. Developments In Heat Transfer Technology Can Improve Exchanger Efficiency And Reduce Water Demand
    2/28/2014

    Water’s high heat capacity, high thermal conductivity, and historically low cost make it popular for process heat exchange. Power plants, especially those for liquid cooling applications, withdraw a large fraction of the total demand for water necessary for agriculture, industry, recreation, hygiene, drinking, and wildlife.  By Kevin J. Farrell and Vijay Sathyamurthi, Heat Transfer Research, Inc., College Station, Texas USA

  4. OPUS Achieves Zero Wastewater Discharge
    10/26/2016

    The client revived, expanded and modernized its operations in order to produce rare earth materials in high volumes and in an environmentally responsible manner. As part of the expansion, the client contracted Veolia to design and build a new water treatment plant for their state-of-the-art rare earth facility.

  5. Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up
    7/7/2014

    Now that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its rule for cooling water intakes under Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, the race is on for more than 600 power plants and manufacturing facilities to comply.  Right now, there is probably no better example in the water industry of how carefully choosing among compliance options can lead to millions of dollars in cost savings.

  6. Submersible Pumping Technology To Provide Safe Fish Passage
    6/24/2016

    The Rocky Reach Dam, with its colorful flowerbeds, visitor’s center and historical and technical museum, is the most significant environmental force in the Pacific Northwest, providing recreation, fishing, and irrigation.

  7. West Deptford Energy Station Becomes Model Of Highly Efficient And Sustainable Energy Generation
    7/11/2018

    Veolia furnished West Deptford Energy with a BIOSTYR® Biological Aerated Filter (BAF) and Hydrotech Discfilter system, allowing effluent from a municipal wastewater plant to be reused, with a treatment capacity of 7.35 MGD, in the operation of their new “green” energy station. 

  8. Rokeby Generating Station Saves 50% In Capital Expense By Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors To Remove CO₂ To Extend Mixed Bed Resin Life
    8/10/2017

    Lincoln Electric Systems (LES) recently commissioned a membrane decarbonation system using  3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors to remove CO2 prior to their mixed bed deionizers.

  9. Oxygen Removal From The Feedwater Of A Central District Heating System
    9/17/2018

    Central district heating systems have gained attention in recent years because they can be more efficient than localized boiler units. The efficiency of district heating is usually due to power generation plants being able to produce heat and electricity simultaneously. District heating also helps prevent pollution by using advanced flue gas cleaning techniques.

  10. 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.
