  • 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 ...

  • Israel Solves Water Woes with Desalination

    After experiencing its driest winter on record, Israel is responding as never before - by doing nothing. While previous droughts have been accompanied by impassioned public service advertisements to conserve, this time around it has been greeted with a shrug - thanks in large part to an aggressive desalination program that has transformed this perennially parched land into perhaps the most ...

  • AWWA announces desalination manual

    The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today the publication of AWWA Manual M61, Desalination of Seawater. As the desalination of seawater becomes an increasingly sought-after alternative for water supply in coastal areas, Desalination of Seawater (M61) ...

  • 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 ...

  • Seawater desalination a sustainable solution

    Aurecon Technical Director Joe Blesing will be presenting a paper on the multiple award winningAdelaide Desalination Plant at the ASEAN Australian Engineering Congress in Singapore on 11-13 March 2015 titled "Seawater desalination - a ...

  • 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 ...

    Wind-powered desalination technology is to be promoted in Bahrain under a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on 31 January 2011 between Jade Consultancy of Bahrain and Synlift Systems GmbH of Germany. The MoU will enable Jade to introduce green desalination technologies for the first time in the Gulf region. The consultancy will provide advice on business opportunities and the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Using Desalination to address Drought

    “It’s a very interesting time in the water industry,” says Carlos Riva ’75, CEO of Poseidon Water, a company that is drawing attention as it develops, in Southern California, what will be the largest seawater desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere. The project is expected to deliver water to ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • World Desalination Components and Technologies

    Desalination - also referred to as desalting, desalinisation or desalinization - is the process by which salt and other minerals are removed from saltwater and brackish water in order to produce water suitable for human consumption, as well as water for irrigation and industrial purposes. Desalination technologies utilize thermal processes, such as vapor compression distillation, multi-stage ...


  • Blue plaque for the founder of desalination

    It has recently come to light that one of the founding fathers of desalination, a Frenchman called Dr Alphonse Normandy, lived in London’s Bloomsbury in the 1850s. He developed equipment for desalinating sea water to produce drinking water, which was patented in 1851. Several people collaborated to investigate Dr Normany’s little-known past, including current president of the ...
