A desalting step was used in both fermentation processes to lower the NaCl to palatable concentrations or to lower the Ca[Cl.sub.2] concentration to below the legal limit of 36 mM in the finished product (21 CFR 184.1193) [24].
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 technology.
The team, scientists from Mexico and the U.S., has been collecting baseline data since 2006 and plans to continue during and after the desalting plant's trial run.
Later, in 1970, I co-authored a study titled "Cost of Steam Supply for Desalting Using Coal-Fired Boilers." This parametric study covered single-purpose (desalination only) and dual-purpose (desalination and power generation) plants.
Abstract: The presented paper deals with desalting of raw hides, meaning soaking operations viewed from the position of tanner.
On the one hand the cost of desalting seawater remains high, and, on the other, the sea is too far from the consumption centers in the urban areas.
The samples were then desalted (D-Salt Dextran plastic desalting columns, 5-kDa cutoff; Pierce).
The algorithm is illustrated by a mathematical model from desalting process dynamics.
The Honolulu general contracting firm is charged with the task of building a $5.7-million desalting plant in Ewa that could serve as a model for similar plants throughout the Islands, according to George Morimoto, project manager and civil engineer with the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR).
It describes the origin, occurrence, and properties of naphthenic acids in crude oil; the mechanism of acid corrosion, including types of corrosion, corrosion by acidic species, sulfidic corrosion, and physical effects; corrosion by high acid crude oil and process effects, corrosion of refinery equipment, and the interaction of acids with refinery equipment; effects in refining (process effects, desalting, distillation, visbreaking, coking, catalytic cracking, hydroprocesses, and mitigation); and removing acid constituents from crude oil through physical and chemical methods, as well as corrosion monitoring and prevention.
The rise in production is expected as a gas desalting unit in the Phase 12 refinery is ready for start-up.
