industry news Desalination Association World Congress in Perth, where thousands of water and desalination experts will gather. The new Centre will explain the benefits and opportunities desalination offers to Australia as the only fully sustainable new source of water, independent of drought and climate change, able to meet increasing population growth and industry demands. NCEDA CEO, Neil Palmer, says Perth is already reliant on desal: 17 per cent of its public water supplies come from the Perth Seawater Desalination Plant at Kwinana, and this will jump to more than 30 per cent later this year when the Southern Seawater Desalination Plant comes online at Binningup. From September, visitors to the new Centre will be able to view a 3D walk-through of a municipal desalination plant and be taken on an animated virtual journey through the desalination process. A purpose-built multimedia room will enable video conferencing with schools around the country and live links with industry specialists. Neil says the Desal Discovery Centre's Edulab is designed to capture young schoolchildren's imaginations with the science and engineering of desalination technologies, fostering future generations of scientists. Run by a fulltime science educator, it will engage up to 36 students at a time offering a mix of firstname.lastname@example.org www.bintech.com.au TOLL FREE 1300 363 163 BINTECH SYSTEMS WATER SOLUTIONS • Ultrasonic Transmitters and Controllers • Point Level Switches • Magnetic Level Gauges • Sludge Level Systems • Wireless Systems • Residual Chlorine • Dissolved Ozone • Dissolved Oxygen • Turbidity • Suspended Solids • pH/ORP • Conductivity • Fluoride • Chlorine Gas Detectors • Portable Meters • Magnetic Flow Meters • Ultrasonic Meters -Transit Time / Doppler • Open Channel • Custom Spool Systems Flow Meters Level Systems Level Systems New Cronos Economy Analytical Controllers NEW!
