In space, conditions are tough and not even a drop can be wasted: literally, even a sweat drop goes into the water recycling process. The ISS, International Space State, is a closed-loop system and there recycling is essential to grant astronauts alive.
There, astronauts’ urine, sweat and moisture from their breath are filtered to remove impurities and turn into potable water, used again to drink, rehydrate and bathe. Therefore, it means that these technologies are “mission critical”… in fact, it would be impossible to survive on the ISS with an eventual failure.
On the ISS water recycling system can recycle around 6000 litres of water per year, plus a 2000 litres backup for any kind of emergency. Luckily, astronauts learn how to save as much water as possible; for instance, they only require 0.5 litres for hygienic purposes a day, compared to 50 litres water that we generally need for a shower.
Despite it might seem unhealthy drinking the same waste water again and again, as this is a close system, the water is purer than the one from the faucet that we generally drink at home.
ISOIL Industria provides a complete range of instrumentation (meters, sensors, samplers, counters, etc.) for applications in the water sector: visit the website www.isoil.com.

Water is necessary in several productive processes, especially in manufacturing industry, where is it becomes a fundamental ingredient in mostly all the phases. That’s why industry uses 40% of the total water use at global scale.
Semiconductor manufacturing industry is a water-intense business. The production consists of chips used in smartphones and computers, which implies an overall growth of the market in the upcoming years. Ultrapure water is in use at every stage of the process, including the removal of impurities from silicon wafers. This is fundamental as ultrapure water is able to remove any kind impurity. For instance, the production process of a 8” wafer (a thin slice of semiconductor) may require up to 7500 litres of ultrapure water (UPW).
For this reason, the semiconductor industry is looking for efficient solutions to reduce the amount of water in use, and to recycle most of it. Recycled water could be useful again in the manufacturing process for facility systems, like scrubbers or cooling towers. Furthermore, recycled water discharged in wastewaters would be cleaner and cooler.

Energy storage installations by 2040 should bloom by 122 times, from 9GW/17GWh to 1,095GW/2,850GWh. This growth will imply investments for 662 billion...
Energy storage installations by 2040 should bloom by 122 times, from 9GW/17GWh to 1,095GW/2,850GWh. This growth will imply investments for 662 billion dollars, possible thanks to a general decline of lithium-ion batteries costs, which already lowered by 85% from 2010 to 2018.
In general, demand will be for stationery storage and electric vehicles and, as the prices continue lowering, cheaper batteries will be applied in more and more sectors, including energy shifting and peaking in the bulk power system.
These uses in particular are ideal both to cope with demand peaks and for private consumers, to buy energy at cheaper hours and use it later. In the near future, new systems of renewables combined with storage will be a major driver in battery building. Demand for storage will increase to balance the higher proportion of variable and renewable electricity. In this scenario, batteries will be the preferred system to manage dynamic supply and demand mix.
To ensure energy efficiency, ISOIL Industria provides a wide range of BTU meters to calculate the Thermal Energy. One of these is the ISONRG heat meter: find out more!

China’s data center industry is among the world’s largest. Internet data, together with the cloud market are responsible for the emission of 99 million tonnes of carbon dioxide last year in China. Furthermore, data centers industry may require up to 66% more electricity in the next five years; in fact, the government wants to develop in Artificial Intelligence and close the gap with US technology by 2030.
Nevertheless, China is currently working on a program to upgrade its economy and clean up its system based on coal energy, reaching 20% renewable by 2030 (at today, 73% of data centres are powered by coal). In this scenario, big data, internet and cloud can play a huge role in supplying cleaner electricity. The government is reforming the power market by promoting wind and solar power that the internet giants should catch, especially considering the sector’s growing forecasts.
In fact, China currently accounts 2.7 million server racks, and is expanding at a rate of 30% a year. CO2 emissions could reach 163 million tonnes by 2023, but increasing the use of renewable from 23% to 30% would imply cutting 16 million tonnes emissions.
Several electrical metering devices are commonly used in data centers. Visit the website www.isoil.it/en/ to discover all the devices provided by ISOIL Industria for this application.

Smart meters are next generation devices for both gas and electricity consumption monitoring. They connect a household or work environment to the power network, and also communicate with one another.
These devices are essential for both Energy and Utility (E&U) companies and consumers and they are just one of the many digital technologies paving the way to smart cities.
The global smart meters penetration is estimated to reach 59% by 2028.
The on-going utility investment in grid intelligence, security and edge computing technologies are the factors that will drive growth.
Europe is emerging as major hub spot of opportunities for the manufacturers of smart meters, for the fact that smart metering is mandatory in the UK and across Europe. Emerging economies in the MEA region are estimated to be at the forefront of smart meters’ installations, as reliable energy supply & management is topping the priority charts across GCC countries. North America and Asia Pacific will continue being two of the largest markets for smart meters, with gains upheld by proactive deployment of smart grid and efforts to enhance billing accuracy.
