Desalination with small and mobile systems

Having water on time in place is a challenge. Building pipe lines is a limited option, depending on the distance water needs to be transported. Also having a plant not being operated due to sufficient rain fall looks like an investment not being in use.

All this gives mobile desalination plants an option to fill this gaps. And today amobile desalination plant can be in a pocket of a trouser producing less than 1 litre in an hours time up tp a desalination Tanker providing 70.000 m³/d.

Small desalination plants are today the majority of all installations found all around the world. Looking into the compo-nents used they have to be very robust and repayable at a reasonable price.

This Seminar will highlight the global actual situ-ation reviewing all existing desalination plants driven by nuclear power, point out necessities to ensure all safety aspects, show the latest developments of both fields of interest applica-ble for best solutions. At the end of the presen-tations the speakers will answer all your ques-tions and discuss with you.

Desalination driven by nuclear power is an op-tion to separate salty water into fresh water and brine. Nuclear power can provide tempera-tures and heat in a reasonable range for thermal processes and electricity for membrane pro-cesses. So called either process integrated (thermal) and project integrated (electricity) co-generation plants.


Desalination powered by solar energy is the oldest method nature does practice at all. But their are a lot of other possi-bilities to desalinate water with renew-able energies.

In this Seminar state of the Art devel-opments in renewable powered Desali-nation will be demonstrated. Partici-pants will have the chance to get an outlook into the existing and upcoming developments.

Membrane development is going very fast. New materials are developed, new composites are introduced, new concepts are published.

This Seminar will give the overview of what is coming next in RO Membrane development and sales to get the participants up to speed in one go.

Since the first RO plant has been erected the development of membranes has continuously proceeded further. The quality of membranes has been improved and the membrane technol-ogy diversified. Nowadays RO Membranes are pushed to the limits and new material and manufacturing developments opening and ab-sorbing old and new markets. At the end of the presentations the speakers will answer all your questions and discuss with you.

The Seminar gives a compact vendors overview about the existing membranes for mem-brane plants and the different fields of applica-tion in Europe and the Arabian countries. Latest R&D developments will be presented. In 2018 this is the first advanced seminar. This time our partner and sponsor of the seminar is Lanxess.

Future Desalination Technologies

Everybody is familiar with MSF, MED, RO, NF, UF. Some might have been in contact with MD and FO. But who knows how this works and who knows what comes next after MD and FO. DME has based on its know-how of desalination technology gath-ered a group of new and interesting tech-nologies being presented by inventors, own-ers of patents and researchers showing where we will go in desalination in the fu-ture. As we all know new and good ideas in desalination are getting more and more needed DME is very proud having gathered this group of people coming and showing a very new way of thinking how to desalinate brackish and seawater in the future. In order to set your expectations you should NOT think of this event to be a shopping area for your company but an illustration of what comes up next; but you may find interesting contacts and people you may stay in contact with in the future.

Membrane distillation (MD) is an emerging technology which attracted a lot of interest in the last years but did not commercialise on large scale until today. A significant increase of research activities is visible due to rising number of publications and conference shares and a few companies already focus their business on this technology. A number of pilot units are already in field operation.

The intention of the seminar is to provide a compre-hensive overview on MD from theoretical background to practical applications and to bring together re-searchers, MD system and component producers and companies who are potential applicants for MD tech-nology.

The seminar will provide details on the physics behind MD and show the advantages and limitations of the process. Possibilities for process optimization will be shown as well as the impact of membrane parameters. Practical results from the lab and from the field will be provided and potential applications for industrial use of MD will be discussed.

Membranes in Water Processing incl. Zero Liquid Discharge

Since the first RO plant has been erected the development of membranes has continuously proceeded further. The quality of membranes has been improved and the membrane technology diversified. Nowadays Micro-, Nano-, Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis are as common and Mem-brane Distillation is on its way to fill the gab of thermal and membrane processes.

Material flow treatment and the production of raw material out of sea- or brackish water can be implemented by means of membranes as well as by ZLD.

During the desalination process, seawater will be concentrated as long as there is salty mud left only. Briefly speaking: ZLD helps to protect the environment and to save resources and costs. And beside of this crude materials may be pro-duced!

Desalination Plants with a capacity of 100.000 m³/day provide the population with drinking wa-ter via central networks. Plants with capacities of some 100 litres to some 500 m³/day secure the supply at decentralized sites without being con-nected to public supply mains. Many hotels and also local industry are heavily based on such sys-tems. The seminar is concentrated on decentral-ized and stand-alone desalination systems. The simple and robust handling of such plants will be the key subject. Most often energy consumption of small systems is not monitored. The seminar will have a close look at this area. Availability is the key in this business. Ordering tankers with water is always an expensive and unexpected situation. The seminar also points out how the independent energy supply of these systems se-cure the long-term water supply at decentralized sites, stressing the importance of such small plants.

Designing a desalination plant is a tough chal-lenge and requires technical knowledge and know-how. In order to reduce cost it is im-portant to know the conception of causal rela-tion between the right pre- and post-treatment of water, the implementation of intake systems and pumps and the required result which means potable water.

This seminar gives you a guideline of how to start your conception of a desalination plant. It leads you along the water flow through the plant and shows the right steps of treating water.

Since many years mankind is facing the problem of water scarcity all over the world. Since many years the industry is looking for appropriate solutions.

Appropriate solution means a tailor-made solution for a particular situation. Desalination markets exist in many regions of the world: the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean and even Europe people in these countries and on these continents are suffering from water scarcity. But even if these areas face the same problem, the conditions are always different. The infrastructural as well as environmental conditions change from country to country. For this reason it is important to know the various local conditions in order to offer the right technical solution.

In the frame of the Saudi Water and Power Forum (SWPF) which will take place from December 1st to 3rd, 2013 in the Hotel Hilton in Jeddah DME becomes an official content partner and "Key Solutions for Key in Markets" in Jeddah.

Experts of the desalination industry give an overview about the different desalination markets. They talk about their experiences in the Middle East and Africa, about parameters like energy supply, costs and environmental conditions etc. which have to be taken into consideration in order clients demands.

During the last years the combination of desali-nation and renewable energies became more and more important. Various systems have been de-veloped and are in duty nowadays.

Such systems show their advantage in saving transport and distribution networks especially in decentralized implementations.

Since the first RO plant has been erected the development of membranes has continuously proceeded further. The quality of membranes has been improved and the membrane technology diversified. Nowadays Micro-, Nano-, Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis are as common and Mem-brane Distillation is on its way to fill the gab of thermal and membrane processes.
Material flow treatment and the production of raw material out of sea- or brackish water can be implemented by means of membranes.
The DME Seminar S-005-2013 Membranes used in Desalination Plants gives a compact vendor’s over-view about the existing membranes for mem-brane plants as well as about membrane distilla-tion and the different fields of application in Eu-rope and the Arabian countries. Latest R&D de-velopments will be presented.

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) – save Environment and produce crude Materials! ZLD is a more and more important key word in desalination and a new means to help not only to save resources but to produce and to recover crude materials.How does it work? By applying the ZLD process the huge quantity of fresh water needed in desali-nation plants will be reduced and proportionally will be the brine. During the desalination pro-cess, seawater will be concentrated as long as there is salty mud left only.Briefly speaking: ZLD helps to protect the environment and to save resources and costs and beside this crude mate-rials may be produced!This seminar conveys basic know-how in physics and its limitations with regard to ZLD. It shows the concept of ZLD, the already existing state-of-the-art technology as well as research programs, supported by experience reports of renowned companies.

The energy consumption of desalination plants   in general is very high and therefore energy is one of the biggest cost factor in desalination plants. How can such costs be reduced?

The key word is “Energy Recovery - Energy Saving”!    

Energy Recovery is used in RO plants as well as in thermal plants.  During the last years systems of energy recovery have been modernised. The latest developments include the use of new and alternative materials as well as new technologies of pumps, valves and steering components.

This seminar gives an overview about the today’s commercially available Energy Recovery Systems. The latest innovations will be presented, apt for various plant sizes.

 


Eine immer größer werdende Menge von analytisch nachweisbaren Stoffen werden im Rohwasser der Trinkwasserversorgung analysiert. Einfluß und Wirkung einiger dieser Stoffe sind noch unerforscht oder gänzlich unbekannt. Andere Stoffe sind als Störstoffe identifiziert und werden beobachtet oder teilweise bereits in der Trinkwasseraufbereitung abgeschieden.

Die wachsende Zahl der verschiedenen technologischen Ansätze und Umsetzungsformen zeigt die aktuelle Bandbreite der Herangehensweisen und Lösungsansätzen. Ein vereinheitlichtes Vorgehensmodell ist noch nicht sichtbar, Falllösungen bestimmen die Landschaft.
