  • How sustainable is renewably powered desalination?

    Desalination technologies could help alleviate water shortages, but they need to have low environmental impact. A new life-cycle analysis of desalination options for water supply in off-grid areas indicates that a photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis system has the least environmental impact of the three technologies considered by the study. An increased use of technologies to remove salt ...

  • 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 ...


  • Californian Conservationists against Desalination

    California is in the process of building a series of massive ocean desalination plants on a scale not seen before in the United States. Conservationists are however pushing back against the powerful interests who are convinced that California's looming water crisis will occur sooner rather than later, arguing that less damaging methods exist. Opponents argue the technology is too expensive and ...
