The need to conserve water is becoming a common concern throughout the world. Whether this is due to the cost of water, availability of water, or environmental concerns, water conservation is becoming a major focal point, both in the public and private sector. In those areas where renewable water resources are limited, and in regions where there are significant environmental concerns and costs associated...

After several years of proven operation in the food- and nutritional-products industry, a patented drying technology is now ready to be applied for any liquid or slurry product. Developed by MCD Technologies, Inc. (Tacoma, Wash.; edlinks.che.com/7373-535), the Refractance Window (RW) system is said to cost about one third as much as freeze drying equipment, and consumes about one third to half the energy...

A dehydration process — which uses about half the energy required by thermal methods for drying brown coal or sludge — is being developed by the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (Tokyo, Japan; edlinks.che.com/6897-532). The process uses liquefied dimethyl ether (DME) as the dehydrating agent, taking advantage of the ether’s properties: namely, DME has a low boiling...

The rise of the salty water table in many areas of Australia is threatening a large area of agricultural land. In a two-year research, development and demonstration project, scientists have been looking for ways to solve the problem by producing fresh water as a valuable byproduct of salinity mitigation. The Renewable Energy Group of RMIT University's School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing...

Ultrasound Brewery Co. (Naruto, Japan; edlinks.che.com/5825-535) has developed a process that separates the water from dilute solutions of alcohol to achieve 99.5%, without using conventional evaporation or distillation. The company has tested the process in a pilot plant that produces 600–700 L/d of 99.5% ethanol from a 10–15% solution. The process, which combines irradiation with ultrasound...
