  • Combining brine management with carbon capture

    Water shortages are an urgent issue in many areas of the world and it is likely that the construction of desalination plants will increase to meet the rising demand for fresh water. A new study has evaluated a combined process to manage both the brine by-product from desalination plants and capture carbon dioxide. Desalination separates seawater (or inland saline or salty water) into fresh water ...

  • Small-scale desalination

    A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable desalination units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries. As well as removing many contaminants, these units could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village. The new approach, called ion concentration polarisation, is described in a paper ...


  • Adaptative management in desalination plant outfall
