Researchers from Penn State University claim that they have developed a prototype device that can use wastewater to create electricity, essentially transforming treatment stations into power plans. Lead researcher and engineering professor Bruce E. Logan and his colleagues have combined microbial fuel cells (which can use wastewater and naturally occurring bacteria to generate electricity) and reverse electrodialysis (which creates power from the differences in salt concentration between...

Having set a new energy saving benchmark for seawater desalination, Siemens is now poised to transition their ground-breaking technology to the product development phase. As a result of an R&D initiative that commenced in October 2008, a demonstration plant was built in Singapore to treat seawater to drinking water quality. The results, which will be presented at Singapore International Water Week, show that the new process reduces desalting energy by over 50% compared to best available...

A process that cleans wastewater and generates electricity can also remove 90 percent of salt from brackish water or seawater, according to an international team of researchers from China and the U.S.Clean water for drinking, washing and industrial uses is a scarce resource in some parts of the world. Its availability in the future will be even more problematic. Many locations already desalinate water using either a reverse osmosis process -- one that pushes water under high pressure through...
