Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Solar desalination plant for sea water, waste water or brineA new system of seawater desalination has been developed, consisting of a solar heat collector made of a transparent film surface in a pyramidshaped tent and another dark one (to retain the maximum amount of heat) material inner truncated pyramid parallel to the former, generating a layer of heated air. Heat accumulates at the vertex, where high temperatures are achieved. This allows the evaporation of seawater injected by micronebulizers, resulting into moisture-laden air being pulled by a central axial tube leading to a 'cold spot' located underground. Here a network of galleries, filled with the stored water, provides cold temperature to dissipate heat and to condense the steam into pure water. Partners to further develop the technology and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
University of Vigo posted this:Innovative process for the removal of persistent organic pollutants present in wastewater streams.This is the first time that surfactants-based aqueous phase segregation has been proposed for the remediation of aromatic organic pollutants. Up to know, biological degradation was used alone or in combination with other physical and chemical methods (e.g. volatilization, sorption, electrokinetic, oxidation, extraction with supercritical fluids, etc.), that often entail economic and environmental disadvantages. Therefore, the proposed strategy is an environmentally friendly alternative that entails benefits such as low energy consumption, low cost, availability of reagents at bulk quantities and easy implementation.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Gold catalysts supported on mixed oxides highly efficient and stable in the Water Gas Shift reactionCSIC, in collaboration with the University of Seville, has developed the synthesis of gold catalysts highly efficient in the Water Gas Shift Reaction (WGS). The catalysts, based on gold supported on CuO/ZnO/Al2O3 mixed oxides with hydrotalcite structure, are able to work without any pre-treatment and are robust against changes in the reaction operation conditions, that make them very useful for production and/or H2 purification processes for fuel processors coupled to fuel cells.

The first technique is based on the interaction of acetic acid volatiles with a specific receptor from the bacterium Bacillus subtilis. The receptor, which is encoded within a bacterial biosensor, will activate a reporter gene in the presence of volatiles of acetic acid. Project ID : 8-2018-4662

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Tri-functional tanks for desalination processesCSIC has developed a water filtration installation. It contains tanks designed to perform various functions: water filtration by means of ultrafiltration, water filtration by reverse osmosis and recycling of reverse osmosis membranes. This installation is used, for example, in seawater desalination processes. Industrial partners from the hydraulic companies are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

The proposed approach to the problem of safe operation of devices is fundamentally different from the solutions which are currently used in industrial practice. Currently, the supervision of these objects is based mainly on standard non-destructive testing methods. The main limitation of used methods is the lack of the possibility of both examining the object in its entire volume and testing the device in working conditions. Developed algorithm allows to effectively solve current problems in the diagnosis of chemical installations related to the assessment of their technical condition and determination of the conditions for further operation in real time. The algorithm is particularly recommended for monitoring devices in which adverse damages occur due to the long-term operation.
