Processing methods and systems are directed toward water filtration and/or purification techniques and/or energy recovery processes that may be used to generate usable water. Some embodiments can include at least one filtration and/or purification stage that processes water to a level of purity. Some embodiments can include recirculating water streams through a stage or another stage to achieve a desired level of purity. Some embodiments can include use of an energy recovery unit that may harvest energy from the water stream of the system and supply the harvested energy therefrom back into the system.


JOHNSTOWN, PA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2017) - The national "2020 Women on Boards" campaign has recognized Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) as a 2016 Winning Company. The 2020 Women on Boards organization is a nonprofit 10-year campaign focused on increasing the number of women who serve on corporate boards to at least 20 percent by the year 2020. This is the second year that 2020 Women on Boards has named CTC a Winning Company for its commitment to board diversity. CTC's Board of Directors includes long-standing members Margaret DiVirgilio and E. Jeanne Gleason. DiVirgilio is also a member of the company's Senior Executive Leadership Team, where she serves as Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. She also serves on the boards of the National Contract Management Association, the National Defense Industrial Association, and Seton Hill University. Gleason is the Chair of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and has been influential in many arts, healthcare, and educational organizations. "CTC is honored to be recognized as a Winning 'W' Company that understands that good corporate decision-making requires the ability to hear and consider different points of view from people with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives," said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., President & Chief Executive Officer. "We are grateful for the invaluable contributions made by our female board members and colleagues throughout the company." 2020 Women on Boards lists 704 Winning Companies, i.e. companies that include 20 percent of women on their boards, in its Gender Diversity Directory database of 1745 Fortune 1000 companies. Now seven years into the 10-year campaign, the organization says the goal is within reach, as 19.7% of board seats in those companies are now held by women compared to 14.6 percent in 2011, the first year of reporting. Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) is an independent, nonprofit, applied scientific research and development professional services organization. Together with our affiliates, Enterprise Ventures Corporation and CTC Foundation, we leverage research, development, test and evaluation work to provide transformative, full lifecycle solutions. To best serve our clients' needs, we offer the complete ability to fully design, develop, test, prototype and build.

A self contained energy generating system that comprises a galvanic battery and a power distribution system. The energy generating system is used to purify water by using a reverse osmosis device that draws in a source of water and transfers electrolytes to the galvanic battery. Upon contact with the electrolyte, the galvanic battery produces energy by an oxidation-reduction reaction of the cathode and anode and transfers energy to the power distribution system, which in turn provides power to the osmosis device. Additionally, the system includes a hydrogen fuel cell to increase the amount of energy generated and a power storage device for storing excess energy generated. The system also includes a controller which is configured to regulate the overall operation of the system.

A system for converting a waste stream to energy including a water purification device that outputs purified water and a waste stream that includes an electrolyte, a wind and electrolytic energy generation device that receives the waste stream from the water purification device and outputs energy based on the electrolyte present in the waste stream and a power distribution system which receives and stores the energy from the wind and electrolytic energy generation device. The water purification device is further connected to the power distribution system and receives energy enabling further operation of the water purification device.

Aluminum-magnesium alloys are ideal for ship construction; however, these alloys can become sensitized and susceptible to intergranular corrosion when exposed to moderately elevated temperatures. A stabilization treatment has been developed to reverse sensitization and restore corrosion resistance, such that in-service plate can be refurbished rather than replaced. This treatment involves a short exposure to a specific elevated temperature range and can be implemented with portable units onboard a ship.

A composite electrode adapted for use in a flow battery stack system has a carbon felt stratum forming a semi-porous reaction zone and a carbon foam stratum forming a porous flow path zone. The composite electrode is less compressible than prior art electrodes having similar conductivity and specific surface areas. Flow battery stack systems employing the composite electrode operate with lower feed pressures, experiences a lower pressure drops across the electrodes, and realize improved electrical resistivity. Alternative embodiments provide electrical conductive elements and a current collector disposed on a surface of the composite electrode.

A self-sealing flow frame is provided having a first frame component and a second frame component. Each frame component is provided with a tongue-and-groove configuration that when assembled forms a tessellation engagement, which creates the seal. When each frame component is assembled into a flow frame, with the inner surfaces facing towards each other, the tongue-and-groove arrangements create a seal profile that circumscribe constituent parts of a device within which the self-sealing flow frame is being employed. As the frame components are compressively secured and fastened together, a tessellation engagement of the seal profile forms the fluid seal. Fluids of the device are prevented from exfiltrating the device, and are contained within the self-sealing flow frame by the fluid seal.
