+ Executive Tech Comparison: RO Membranes
In the next instalment of WWi's technology series, we take a closer look into the world of Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes. Several of the top manufacturers have been invited to answer the question: How is the environmental footprint of RO membranes being reduced, through energy and biofouling improvements?
+ By the Power of Water: Osmotic Energy in Norway
Estimates suggest that osmotic power -- produced from the mix of seawater and freshwater -- has the global potential to generate the same amount of energy as China consumed back in 2002. This article will outline the process and address a partnership between IDE Technologies and Statkraft in Norway to develop a 2MW pilot plant.
+ Regional Spotlight: Europe
Two countries will be focused upon in this issue's regional spotlight but for different reasons.
Croatia is due to join the EU in 2013, following accessing talks back in 2005. Not only will this move affect the country politically, but it also means the country will be subject to more stringent EU-wide regulations. With the European Commission approving over 600,000 euros for the clean up of the Adriatic Sea, what opportunities will this integration bring for the water/wastewater sectors?
Poland, meanwhile has been slapped on the wrist a second time by the European Commission (EC) for failing to enact national legislation on water. A second article will analyse why progress has slipped in the country and what knock-on effect this has on Europe and further afield.
+ Lucky Number SIX? Ceramic Membrane Trial in UK
In February a facility was commissioned between utility South West Water and Dutch first PWN Technologies for the delivery of ceramic membrane and SIX (Suspended Ion eXchange process) technology. With testing taking place over the next 18 months, the article will look at the adoption of the technology and differences compared to traditional drinking water treatment.
