The new FLEX isobaric energy recovery device (photo) is this company’s next-generation compact pressure exchanger for reverse osmosis (RO) plants. The FLEX pressure exchanger is designed to be one of the most efficient and compact energy-recovery devices on the market.
With its ability to recover more than 98% of hydraulic energy and offer the highest unit capacity available, while being notably smaller than competitor products, the FLEX pressure exchanger can substantially reduce the cost of desalination by lowering operating and capital expenditures, the company says. The FLEX offers a simple design with only four […]
EL PASO, Texas – The Kay Bailey Hutchison Desalination plant on the east side is the world’s largest inland desalination plant. It is the largest based on how many millions of gallons of clean water it can produce on a given day- capable of cleaning a whopping 27.5 million gallons per day, the equivalent of 416 Olympic size swimming pools.
However, that number isn’t always met, as the amount of water produced is based on customer needs. For example, in June, before the start of the Monsoon, the water demand is high, and more gallons […]
Texas regulators issued an environmental permit Thursday for the Port of Corpus Christi to build what could become the state’s first seawater desalination plant — but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency may refuse to accept it.
Citing water quality concerns, the Environmental Protection Agency may refuse to recognize a permit that Texas approved Thursday for a marine desalination plant at the Port of Corpus Christi.
More than 2 billion people globally lack access to clean drinking water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nonprofit organization GivePower is aiming to reduce that number by using the sun’s energy, shipping containers, desalination technology and local supply chains.
GivePower builds and delivers containerized solar-powered water farms that desalinate salty water.
The organization focuses on areas where “there’s an immediate and growing need for better access to safe water,” Kyle Stephan, told FreightWaves.
Corpus Christi councilmen express concern for plans regarding proposed desalination plant – Texas – United States
Seven Seas Water Group will finance, design, build, operate and maintain a Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis plant on land owned by the city, according to a news release that touted the public-private partnership as the first of its kind in Texas.
San Antonio built a pipeline to rural Central Texas to increase its water supply. Now local landowners say their wells are running dry – Texas
When the water finally arrived, San Antonio’s leadership could relax. The roughly 150-mile long water pipeline to the northeast guaranteed the city’s economic future and freed residents from the stress of droughts.
“We have water security for decades to come,” said Robert Puente, president and CEO of the San Antonio Water System. Puente called the project, which came online in April 2020, the “biggest achievement in our lifetimes” to secure water for the city.
