Scientists design green water treatment method


Green Chemistry-Radboud University Dec 18Using plants and animals to purify wastewater while extracting raw materials: that is the principle of Aquafarm. In early September, after a year and a half of research, a trial setup was launched which should lead to the first biological water purification within four years. In an Aquafarm, aquatic plants and animals remove waste products from the water. This leads to cleaner water that complies with the European directive for natural water. In addition, natural water purification can be combined with the production of raw materials, such as proteins and fats. Read More

Report-SilanesMarket Overview: Silanes are homologues of saturated carbon-hydrogen compounds ie. of alkanes. All silanes share a general formula: SinH2n+2. Silanes made of silicon and hydrogen only are called unsubstituted silanes and are very unstable thus can only be produced in the absence of oxygen. There are various types of silanes namely methylsilanes, silanols, chlorosilanes etc. Silanes consist of one or more silicon atoms linked to each other or one or more atoms of other chemical elements as the tetrahedral centers of multiple single bonds.

Report-Water Clarifiers Dec 18Market Overview: Clarifiers are the settling tanks used for removal of solids suspended particulates present in water through sedimentation. This is done to enhance the quality of water to meet quality standards for various uses of water. Water clarifiers are machine-operated water treatment tanks in which the sludge or concentrated impurities is discharged from the bottom of the tank and the layer of dirt or froth on the surface of the water is called as scum. A package of chemical-injection releases various categories of chemicals into the water in order to optimize the water treatment process. Read More

Report-Refinery Catalyst Dec 18Industry Trends: Refinery Catalyst Market size was estimated to be beyond $4 billion in 2017 and is predicted to grow at over 3 percent CAGR from 2018 to 2025. The refinery catalyst market will witness an appreciable growth on account of tightening legislation for fuel emission control and proliferating demand for reformulated gasoline. These products convert crude oil into diesel, petrol, kerosene and other petroleum derivatives. These petrochemical catalysts play a noteworthy role by refining more amount of diesel and gasoline from same amount of crude oil. Read More
