  • Variable salinity desalination for Singapore

    The viability of a variable salinity water desalination (VSD) treatment plant to harvest water from estuarine catchments in Singapore has been explored. The plant is able to treat both low-salinity river water and high-salinity seawater; the treated water is of high grade and energy consumption is half that of seawater desalination plants. Singapore, a small island city-state of some 700 square ...
