Activated carbon filtration process is one of the most widely used filtration techniques to remove a broad range of contaminants from drinking water such as natural organic matter, volatile organic compounds, pesticides, and petroleum-related compounds. Organic compounds are mainly responsible for taste and odor issues in drinking water. Thus, activated carbon can be very useful...

Dubai has witnessed exponential economic growth over the last three decades. This economic development has resulted in increased water demand. According to the State of Energy Report 2015, the demand for water grew largely at a rate of 35.8 percent from 2008 to 2012. The city of Dubai gets its drinking water from two main...

Remineralization is the process of adding the essential minerals back into desalinated or reverse-osmosis treated water. Reverse osmosis is not a selective process with respect to removing contaminants from the water. In addition to removing harmful constituents such as bacteria, heavy metals, etc. it also removes useful nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium from...

Desalination plants remove dissolved minerals (primarily salts) from seawater, brackish groundwater or treated wastewater to provide clean drinking water. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) predominantly uses the desalination process to treat seawater for drinking water purposes. Approximately 42 percent of the total water demand is met through 70 desalination plants. The water quality characteristics of...

Alkaline water is defined as water with a pH higher than 7.0. Alkalinity is the measure of the capability of water to neutralize acids or resist changes in pH that would make the water acidic (pH below 7.0). It primarily results from the presence of limestone or calcium minerals in the source water. Lower alkalinity...

Desalination Plant and Reverse Osmosis filters have proven very effective in removing bacteria (E. coli, Samonella), protozoa (Guardia, Cryptosporidium), and chemical inorganic contaminants such as sodium, chloride, lead, and fluoride from the water. However, some of the essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium can also get eliminated in the process. Desalinated water results in...

Desalination and Reverse Osmosis are some of the commonly adopted treatment techniques for provision of clean drinking water in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Desalination process removes or separates dissolved minerals (primarily salts) from seawater, brackish groundwater or treated wastewater to provide clean drinking water. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water treatment process in which...

The home water filtration market including point-of-use (POU) filters such as countertop filters, pitcher filters, under-sink filters, refrigeration filters and point-of-entry (POE) filters such as reverse osmosis systems, water softening systems, and ion exchange units has gained tremendous impetus over the last decade. According to a survey by Frost & Sullivan, the water purification market...
