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.

Universitat de València posted this:Test Kit for anionic surfactant in waterThe most remarkable advantages provided by this technology are: o Simplicity and versatility of the kit, which allows carrying out a high throughput screening or in situ analysis with very short analysis times. o Low analysis cost, since dyes, organic solvents that generate residues and instrumental equipment are not used. o High sensitivity of the method, that detect anionic surfactant concentration lower than the maximum residue limit established in most of the environmental legislation.

UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:Automatic autonomous device for water control and monitoring, and other aqueous media (based on the detection of analytes of interest)Smart device focused on real-time water management. Applicable both drinking water and industrial and waste waters, monitored parameters include cations (Fe (III), Hg (II), Al (III), etc.), oxidants (Cl, nitrites, peroxide, etc.), biogenic amines, trinitrotoluene, pH, turbidity, conductivity, etc. This developed technology, composed by a series of sensors, small biochips, which experiment a change of colour when contacting the analyte of interest. This change is captured by a digital camera and is sent via Wifi to a database, where it is analysed and registered. It is also possible to issue a report and/or inform clients in real-time.
