Cheng Luo, professor in the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department, and Xin Heng, PhD candidate in the same College of Engineering department, published “Bioinspired Plate-Based Fog Collectors” in the Aug. 25 edition of ACS’ (American Chemical Society) Applied Materials & Interfaces journal.
The idea of the Rain Cell Africa consortium researchers is to benefit from this amount of data to improve rainfall monitoring and spatialisation. This is a method whose effectiveness has been proven, with a reliability rate of 95 per cent for detecting rainfall events.
Redrawing the boundaries of innovation in the water industry, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today released its V13 Generation of H2ONET for AutoCAD® 2015 (Autodesk, San Rafael, CA), enabling engineers to work faster
With a new system that combines a moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) with a dissolved air flotation (DAF) systems, the Hopewell Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility in Hopewell, Va. will be able to lower its total nitrogen (TN) waste load while also accomplishing compliance with local regulations.
Floating islands, also known as floating treatment wetlands (FTWs), are a relatively new technology for improving water quality and creating habitat. Over 5,000 floating islands have been installed around the world in the past decade. Island sizes range from small decorative units to larger than football fields, and can be made in any shape or buoyancy. Isl
Powerfall, a spin-out from telecoms innovator Ziconix, says it can generate electrostatic energy at high efficiencies with water pressure heads of only 50 mbar – equivalent to a 50cm head of water – making it suited to low head hydro applications and energy harvesting.
Researchers from the University of Bath’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Bristol Robotics Laboratory at the University of the West of England have created a sensor, which is reportedly safe to use in rivers and lakes for round-the-clock water quality assessment.
As part of Ontario’s Showcasing Water Innovation program, the Town of Greater Napanee partnered with an innovative Ontario company, Envirologics Engineering Inc., to remove tuberculation from the municipal water systems, which resulted in increased fire flows and improved drinking water quality.
Total solution, which is comprised of a Tenkara USA branded Playtpus water bag and a cylindrical Aquamira filter, weighs in at a paltry 2.8 ounces. The filter is a no-pump, gravity-based filter that can be used standalone or with the included bottle.
The creation is an answer to the people who had been complaining of impure water in their locality. The water filter is the best possible solution that works on all three organisms, bacteria, viruses and fungi, effectively and gives pure water.
The software’s BIM advancements extend information mobility across water system planning, design, and operations – improving collaboration within and between these phases of the infrastructure lifecycle and facilitating better decision making for enhanced project and syste
Steve Cupples is an engineer and the managing director of UK based Industrial Purification Systems (IPS) which manufactures CrossFlow HEMF, one of the most effective high efficiency water filtration systems currently on the market.
