The product can be considered as a new alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment, where taste and odor removal, disinfection byproduct (DBP) or DBP precursor removal, and total organic carbon (TOC) removal are required. The product also serves as a premium performance choice for groundwater applications.

AquaCarb CX Series carbons have the high microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon combined with the faster kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons, resulting in excellent volatile organic carbon (VOC) removal capacity, while also working well in applications where bituminous coal-based carbons have been the preferred choice.
Siemens’ studies have shown that AquaCarb CX Series carbons exhibit a higher adsorption capacity than coal-based carbon for several applications, with greater throughput before carbon breakthrough. The result is a lower lifecycle cost for the customer, and a lower cost for complying with DBP regulations and managing taste and odor issues.
Siemens Water Technologies is a leader in carbon adsorption technology through the Westates line of activated carbons and equipment. As well, Siemens offers a wide range of technical and field support services including analytical testing, removal and installation and spent carbon reactivation and recycling, all of which help ensure that adsorber systems continue to operate efficiently and downtime is minimized.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
