As a summer research project, Deshawn Henry built a water lens from inexpensive, accessible materials that can clean 99.9% of pathogens in one litre of water by heating the water to 54 to 66 degrees Celsius in about an hour. “We designed a six foot tall by three foot square frame out of wood,” says Henry.
When you think of a city's sewer operations, you probably think of one of these trucks pulling up outside your house. Some issues certainly require large-scale interventions, like the giant balloonthat LADWP is using to choke the massive water main break at UCLA.
Jeff Ciudaj is an inventor with a passion for problem solving. With the state of California in its fourth year of drought, Ciudaj says his modified irrigation system can save up to 50 percent of water usage.
The idea is simple. It means taking advantage of a property of rainfall that is well-known to telecommunications professionals: drops of water reducing the radio signal transmitted between two antennas. Two phenomena are involved.
IBM today announced thatBangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), which supplies water to nearly 800 square kilometers of the city, is using IBM Big Data and predictive analytics technology to create systems for monitoring and managing increasingly complex water distribution systems.
The process of desalination isn’t nearly as energy-intensive as it was just a decade ago, thanks to new reverse-osmosis plant designs and nano-structured membranes that have drastically improved the energy efficiency of turning salt water into fresh water.
Providing , high-performance water filter liquid purification technologi with Unmatched water filter performance, (ultrafiltration 0.04 micron).
UltraHydra can be used for supplying potable drinking water from various sources including wells, dams, creeks, rivers swamps and poor quality town water supplies.
The United Nations has called drought the “world’s costliest natural disaster,” both financially, imposing an annual cost of $6-8 billion, and in human terms; since 1900, it has affected two billion people, leading to m
A hallmark of InfoWorks ICM is its dynamic integration of one-dimensional (1D) hydrodynamic simulation of flows in rivers, open channels and pipe networks and two-dimensional (2D) hydrodynamic simulation of surface flooding in the urban environment and river floodplain.
More than 70% of the Earth's surface is covered in water, but only 0.01% of that water is fit to drink. And the world's population is growing, along with the need for water. Between 2000 and 2025, the world's water consumption is forecast to rise by about 30%.
