  • Desalination is a High Growth Market

    Water in many countries is competing with oil as the most precious commodity. The ocean can supply the needs of the world through desalination. One of the limiting factors in increased desalination production has been energy costs. With more efficient desalination technology and the low price of oil, the costs of desalination are now less than that of water from alternative sources. This is ...

  • Spotlight on desalination techniques

    New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, ‘Desalination: A Technological Assessment', finds that reverse osmosis (RO) has a bright future in the desalination market but research is ongoing for ion exchange processes and thermal technologies that involve utilisation of waste heat. Thermal and membrane desalination are the technologies driving the ultra pure water and potable water sectors in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • International Desalination Association Issues Blue Paper On Desalination And The Environment Of The Gulf

    The International Desalination Association (IDA) has released a “Blue Paper” with findings from its Environmental Symposium and recommendations to minimize potential environmental effects from desalination on the Gulf. The Blue Paper is the result of 12 months of work done by IDA’s global Environmental Task Force (ETF). It also reflects dialogue among approximately 200 ...

  • Thirsty Australia Advances Desalination Technology

    Melbourne, Australia - The delivery of energy efficient water desalination to drought-stricken Australia received a boost today with the establishment of a new collaboration between the government research agency CSIRO and nine Australian universities.
