  • Global desalination investment to double

    Water scarcity, population growth, pollution and urbanisation are all placing increased pressure on freshwater resources around the world. At the same time, the cost of desalination has fallen; it is becoming a more affordable means of meeting the world"s growing freshwater needs, according to a review by Pike Research. The report states that all of these factors will contribute to strong ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. The research aims to advance water desalination as an alternative water supply option for Australia by increasing efficiency, and reducing the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Major breakthrough with water desalination system

    Concern over access to clean water is no longer just an issue for the developing world, as California faces its worst drought in recorded history. According to state's Department of Water Resources, supplies in major reservoirs and many groundwater basins are well below average. Court-ordered restrictions on water deliveries have reduced supplies from the two largest water systems, and an ...
