Water treatment The recently introduced FoodPro ST line of water-treatment chemicals from GE Power & Water (Trevose, Pa.; www.ge.com) prevents corrosion and scale in stainless-steel sterilizers and pasteurizers in the food and beverage industry, and they are less expensive than alternatives because they contain no molybdate. When calculated on the costs to treat 1 m3 of water, FoodPro ST chemicals are 30% more cost-effective than the corrosion inhibitor molybdate, GE says. FoodPro ST products use a blend of organic corrosion inhibitors, phosphates, polymeric dispersants and a wetting agent, and are designed specifically for food sterilization equipment. GE says in tests with its products and alternatives, the FoodPro ST chemicals offered equal or better levels of corrosion and scale inhibition than current molybdate-based products without heavy metals. CHP & CO2 capture GE (Fairfield, Conn.; www.ge.com) recently unveiled the first combined heat and power (CHP) system at a commercial greenhouse. The system captures CO2 and uses it to feed tomatoes during daylight photosynthesis. The cogeneration system is located in Camarillo, Calif. at the Houweling Tomato greenhouse. It provides 8.7 MW of electrical power and 10.6 MW of thermal…
