  • Private Water Players Reshaping Global Desalination Poseidon Enters Top 25
    News February 3 2016 Private Water Players Reshaping Global Desalination Poseidon Enters Top 25 The top 25 desalination system owners including both public and private companies added a quarter approximately 25 of total capacity additions in 2015 representing an estimated 524 000 cubic meters per day Private players took an active role in the desalination market in 2015 representing nine of the top 10 biggest movers by capacity additions according to rankings just released by Bluefield Research With the commissioning of its Carlsbad California desalination plant Poseidon Resources became the first US company to rank among the top 25 private water owners globally according to Bluefield Research Poseidon s new position highlights the role of private players in desalination particularly as governments and utilities seek strategies to minimize the impact of diminishing water supplies according to Reese Tisdale President of Bluefield Research Top 25 Private Desalination Plant Owners 2015 Currently 85 of the top 25 players capacity is held in the Middle East North Africa region driven by state owned entity assets and independent water providers While the lion s share of development activity will continue in this region desalination will enable key players to scale their water portfolios in global hot spots like Chile Mexico India and Singapore Competition for new plant additions is intense There are so few large scale water projects being tendered at any given time we have seen a spike in geographic diversification among companies like Hyflux GS Inima RWL Water and Acciona Agua says Tisdale Looking forward Bluefield foresees additional shifts though merger and acquisition Several companies including Israel Chemicals and Delek Group have hinted at divestment and Spain based Abengoa has entered into bankruptcy proceedings that could result in a sell off of its ownership stakes in Ghana and Algeria Bluefield analyzes the

  • Battery Technology Could Charge Up Water Desalination
    water with the smallest amount of energy that we can Smith said One thing I m excited about is that by publishing this paper we re introducing a new type of device to the battery community and to the desalination community Interest in water desalination technology has risen as water needs have grown particularly in drought stricken areas However technical hurdles and the enormous amounts of energy required have prevented wide scale implementation The most used method reverse osmosis pushes water through a membrane that keeps out the salt a costly and energy intensive process By contrast the battery method uses electricity to draw charged salt ions out of the water The researchers were inspired by sodium ion batteries which contain salt water Batteries have two chambers a positive electrode and a negative electrode with a separator in between that the ions can flow across When the battery discharges the sodium and chloride ions the two elements of salt are drawn to one chamber leaving desalinated water in the other In a normal battery the ions diffuse back when the current flows the other direction The Illinois researchers had to find a way to keep the salt out of the now pure water In a conventional battery the separator allows salt to diffuse from the positive electrode into the negative electrode Smith said That limits how much salt depletion can occur We put a membrane that blocks sodium between the two electrodes so we could keep it out of the side that s desalinated See a video of how it works on YouTube The battery approach holds several advantages over reverse osmosis The battery device can be small or large adapting to different applications while reverse osmosis plants must be very large to be efficient and cost effective Smith said
