Siemens solutions for integrated water resources management at the IWRM Karlsruhe

On November 21 and 22 at the IWRM Congress in Karlsruhe, the Siemens Industry Automation Division will be presenting its portfolio for the planning, engineering and efficient operation of complex water management systems.

Showcased at the Siemens booth will be a range of high-performance solutions for water and waste water treatment facilities as well as desalination plants. The Congress will be focusing on issues surrounding the protection and sustainable utilization of water as a resource.

The growing global requirement for drinking water has triggered a continuing rise in the number of large and complex water treatment plants. Alongside new water and waste water treatment facilities, in many parts of the world the planning and implementation of desalination plants is also on the rise. Visitors to the exhibition staged alongside the IWRM Congress will have a chance to visit the Siemens booth to find out more about the concept of integrated engineering.

Integrated engineering offers operators an efficient solution encompassing not only the planning and engineering of new plants but also their subsequent automation. Plants of all different sizes and levels of complexity can be effectively planned and designed using the Comos engineering software.

Using a newly established interface, prepared engineering data can be transmitted directly to the Simatic PCS 7 process control system, substantially simplifying and speeding up the process of plant commissioning. The Comos engineering software solution also permits the selection and configuration of field devices.

The PIA Life Cycle Portal online configurator supports the simple selection and fault-free collation of device order numbers both quickly and accurately.

When it comes to rapid engineering of field devices across the whole life cycle of a plant – whether at the detail engineering, plant expansion or maintenance stage – the new interface to the PIA Life Cycle Portal makes available the necessary technical data.

With five keynote speeches as well as 15 workshops encompassing over 60 presentations, the IWRM 2012 will offer participants the opportunity to find out everything they could wish to know about water resources management. Together with the trade exhibition staged at the same time, the Conference is a key international information and communication platform for the water industry.

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research will also be present at the event to report on its integrated water resources management-related activities. The IWRM 2012 will be rounded off by the presentation of the NEO Innovation Prize for outstanding work in research and innovation. With participants from more than 25 countries expected to attend this year’s event, the IWRM Karlsruhe 2012 creates the ideal link between science, practice and politics.

Im Focus: How Cells in the Developing Ear ‘Practice’ Hearing

Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have figured out the molecular chain of events that enables the cells to make “sounds” on their own, essentially “practicing” their ability to process sounds in the world around them.

The researchers, who describe their experiments in the Dec. 3 edition of the journal Cell, show how hair cells in the inner ear can be activated in the absence...

Im Focus: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Im Focus: Innovative Photovoltaics – from the Lab to the Façade

Fraunhofer ISE Demonstrates New Cell and Module Technologies on its Outer Building Façade

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
