New Hong Kong desalination plant begins delivering fresh water to 137,000 homes – China

Binnies Hong Kong Managing Director Andy Kwok said: “Commissioning the first stage of the Tseung Kwan O desalination plant means it is now delivering drinking water to 137,000 homes across Hong Kong and represents a significant step towards a reliable climate-proof and sustainable water supply. This is critical for Hong Kong as the region faces a number of key challenges, including increasing demand as the population grows, and we are now seeing more erratic rain patterns and severe drought exacerbated by climate change. With the plant in action, we have a much more stable and safe fresh water [

“This first of the two-staged plant will provide fresh water to a population of around 370,000 and has a production capacity of 135 million litres per day, representing about 5% of Hong Kong’s daily demand. This commissioning of the plant marks a significant milestone for us as the project team because we have achieved our goal of supporting the WSD in diversifying its drinking water supplies with a new ‘tap’ that is sustainable and, importantly, climate resilient.”

Experiment demonstrates nanoscale structures can improve reverse osmosis seawater desalination – Qingdao, China

“With the assistance of the crown ether interlayer, the polyamide membrane obtains more nanoscale structures on the membrane surface and a nanoscale thickness, which are conducive to enhancing water performance, because the former increases the effective filtration area, while the latter greatly reduces the mass transfer resistance,” Jiang said.

“Moreover, nanoscale pores in the membrane can provide high-speed channels to promote water transport. The developed polyamide membrane demonstrates a superior water permeance over the pristine polyamide membrane while maintaining a comparable salt rejection.”

“The novelty of this work is the development crown ether [
