From sewage to potable water

Engineer Marco Cremona’s revolutionary water technology wins acclaim of international panel. It is estimated that each hotel guest in Malta consumes at least three times as much water as a Maltese resident, for an annual consumption of around 3 million cubic metres of water a year.

This bleak fact is what prompted Ing. Marco Cremona to design a system that transforms wastewater, produced by a typical hotel in Malta, into potable water in a reliable and cost-effective way. Through this recycling process, 80% of the water that is normally consumed by the hotel can be saved.

Enemalta engineers' union against power link to Sicily
Enemalta engineers' union against power link to SicilyThe Enemalta Professional Officers' Union has come out against the proposed submarine cable connecting Sicily and Malta.

"Questions arise whether the security of supply will be threatened at the expense of reducing emissions. The submarine cable is a real time provider of electricity and given the scenario of a cable fault occurring when 200MW are being supplied, the electricity network in Malta will surely collapse and plunge the whole nation in darkness with very serious consequences for the whole business community on the island. To add insult to injury repairing a fault at sea is not an easy task especially if the elements of nature are against you. The cable interconnection has to be evaluated vis-à-vis the political, economical and social implications it may have."

Energy recovery from waste: Where waste is no longer wasted

by Ing Nicholas Sammut

This article explains the process of energy recovery systems for both the disused Maghtab and Ta’ Zwejra Landfills.

First of all, there is a clear distinction between energy recovery systems for uncontrolled dumps (such as the former dump at Maghtab) and for engineered landfills, as is the case for the Ta’ Zwejra and Ghallis facilities. Both the dump at Maghtab and the Ta’ Zwejra engineered landfills are located within the Maghtab Waste Management Complex, and both are no longer operational. However, this is basically where the similarities end. The differences in land filling patterns have resulted in emissions with very different characteristics.
