Sustainable Desalination Handbook: Plant Selection, Design and Implementation provides the comprehensive knowledge base required for efficient and sustainable process design for existing and new desalination plants around the world. This valuable resource for understanding and utilizing the most recent developments in desalination technologies. 6 Desalination: A National Perspective ter. Ideally, these considerations should be compared against equally rig- orous environmental impact analyses of water supply alternatives, so that decisions can be made based on comparisons of the full economic costs and benefits, including environmental and social costs and benefits, among the various.
The socio-economical development of many regions lacking a sufficient supply of fresh water (FW) may at times be planned with the help of desalination technologies for sea and brackish water (SW. This chapter discusses the cost of desalination powered by % renewable energy power plants and demonstrates how and why renewable energy powered desalination is a lucrative option to meet the future global water demand. The global desalination demand by , based solely on water stress and water demand, is estimated. Saltwater is desalinated to produce water suitable for human consumption or by-product of the desalination process is brine. Desalination is used on many seagoing ships and of the modern interest in desalination is focused on cost-effective provision of fresh water for human use. Along with recycled wastewater, it is one of the few rainfall-independent water sources. After a brief overview of widely used desalination technologies, Desalination Engineering focuses on reverse osmosis desalination. The book discusses basic principles, planning and environmental review of projects, design and selection of key desalination plant components, desalinated water posttreatment, and concentrate management/5(17).
Rational Design of Next-generation Nanomaterials and Nanodevices for Water Applications is intended for undergraduates, graduates, scientists and professionals in the fields of environmental science and engineering, material science, chemistry, and chemistry engineering. It provides coherent and good materials for teaching, research, and. Hiroki Martínez Design of a desalination plant: Aspects to consider 1 2. ABSTRACT One of the main problems our actual society faces is the shortage of water. Despite the great effort made by authorities and researchers, multiple countries with poor economic resources are experiencing serious difficulties derivative of water scarcity. to be addressed when evaluating potential desalination plant sites; however, the supply of seawater to a coastal desalination plant often seems to be relatively straightforward consideration.
