Oceanit Presents HeatX on ThinkTech Hawaii
Oceanit Chemical Engineer, Sumil Thapa, and Head of Marketing, Jay Andrews appeared on ThinkTech Hawaii’s ‘Likeable Science’ show last week. They joined host, Ethan Allen, to discuss the development history of HeatX surface treatment and how it is making a big impact in Hawai’i and is going global in 2019.
2019 NACE UAE Corrosion Conference
The 2019 NACE UAE Corrosion Conference was held from January 28-31 at the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi. The key topic was corrosion prevention and control as a critical issue for the future of development and industry in the Middle East and around the world. Oceanit’s presentation to the NACE Corrosion Conference attendees focused on heat exchangers as critical and costly pieces of equipment at energy production plants and refinery facilities.
Global Carbon Emissions Rise to 37.1 Gigatons, Here Is What We Can Do
The Global Carbon Project report states that the major driver of the 2018 increase was higher electricity demand worldwide, leading to more coal-burning – primarily by China and India as their economies grew and more oil used in transport. Emissions in China were up 4.7% and India by 6.3% year on year. However, almost all countries are contributing to the accelerating emission rates.
HeatX at the 2018 International Pittsburgh Coal Conference
The 2018 International Pittsburgh Coal Conference was held from October 15-18 at the China University of Mining & Technology in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, China. This year was the 35th annual conference, which alternates venues between the University of Pittsburgh and the China University of Mining & Technology. At the conference, Dr. Vinod Veedu delivered a HeatX presentation titled, “Novel Nanocomposite Surface Treatment for High Efficiency, Low Emission Coal Power” which focused on how Oceanit’s functional surface treatments could help the world to achieve this 7% efficiency gain.
HeatX at the ADB Asia Water Forum 2018, Manila
Oceanit delivered a presentation titled, “Functional Surfaces for Highly Efficient, Low Carbon, Low Cost Desalination” which focused on how nanocomposite surfaces, like HeatX, can greatly increase the efficiency of desalination processes. Current desalination efforts are typically high-cost in that they consume a lot of energy in order to desalinate saline water.
