DESALINATION RESOURCES

  • This white paper will explore how the BiTurbo, a revolution in high recovery RO, optimizes membrane performance and reduces total cost of water. 

  • As the global economy starts fully integrating other sources of energy in addition to fossil fuel, solar and wind, green hydrogen is starting to gain momentum.

  • Coastal urban centers around the world are urgently looking for new, sustainable water sources as their local supplies become less reliable. In the U.S., the issue is especially pressing in California, which is coping with a record-setting, multidecadal drought.

  • Brine is everywhere: desalination plants, gas and oil drillings, energy generation plants, mines, cooling towers, food manufacturing plants, chip fabrication, and many other industries that require high volumes of water. They all generate brine as a byproduct of their processes.

  • Among the plethora of social problems that impact people all over the globe, some are very easy to solve while others may take millennia to resolve completely. Social concerns are developing and evolving constantly, and novel challenges are frequently thrust to the fore.

  • Singapore is using desalination as part of the solution to their water supply issue in order to provide enough clean drinking water for its ever-growing population of 5.5 million.

  • A staggering four billion people — two-thirds of the world’s population — experience water scarcity each year, and more than half lack access to safe sanitation services. The severity of this global water crisis will only increase as populations continue to rapidly grow, industries exhaust shared resources and extreme weather events exacerbate shortages. If we don’t act urgently, 700 million people could be displaced by intense water scarcity in just a few short years.

  • Sea water desalination is unequivocally the future of drinking water production for coastal communities and island nations in current times of water scarcity. It is already used quite heavily in a few countries. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States are the top three desalination producers of drinking water by capacity in the world followed by Australia, China, and Kuwait.

  • While it is true that more than half of our planet’s surface is covered in water, a vast majority of it is saline. Fresh water, the water we use in hundreds of ways every day, constitutes only 2.5 % of all the water on the Earth. Today, the world faces what is known as the water crisis. Parts of the world do not have access to this most vital resource on the planet. Therefore, a focus on water recycling and water reuse is required to optimize the use of our critical water resources.

  • Altamonte Springs’ implemented a pilot program called the pureALTA project with two primary goals – to serve as platform for future potable water reuse efforts; and to educate the 45,000 residents about the benefits of potable water reuse.

DESALINATION SOLUTIONS

  • Industrial Solutions and Services

    Veolia Water Technologies is a full service water management company dedicated to developing customer-specific solutions that reduce water consumption, effectively manage and treat wastewater, minimize water discharge and ensure environmental compliance.

  • Reverse Osmosis: RO Meter

    This compact instrument has been designed specifically to demonstrate and test POU reverse osmosis or distillation systems. By measuring electrical conductivity, it will quickly determine the parts per million/Total Dissolved Solids (ppm/TDS) of any drinking water

  • Process Instrumentation And Analytics Solutions For Water And Wastewater

    Supplying drinking water to the population and treating wastewater are two very important global challenges. On a daily basis, system planners, designers and operators are required to keep the global increase in water consumption under control in the face of growing water shortages and the salination of fresh water resources. As industry experts for water applications, we offer powerful, innovative technical solutions to assist you.

  • MECTAN® Induced Vortex Grit Chamber

    Grit is a source of problems in wastewater treatment facilities, which causes wear and tear on mechanical equipment, decreases the effective treatment volume in basins, causes pipe blockages and generally increases operating costs.

  • Ultra-High Recovery Reverse Osmosis

    AdEdge-ROTEC’s Flow Reversal technology is designed to be implemented in new and existing reverse osmosis desalination facilities for water purification, brackish water, process water, and other industrial applications. This high recovery technology addresses concerns often associated with desalination and enables significant system performance improvements, leading to higher profitability, reduced operating costs, and a lower environmental impact.
