Desalination is a process that takes away mineral components from saline generally, desalination refers to the removal of salts and minerals from a target substance, as in soil desalination, which is an issue for agriculture. Saltwater is desalinated to produce water suitable for human consumption or by-product of the desalination process is brine.

A growing proportion of the world’s population is dependent on Seawater Desalination as a source of fresh water for both potable and civil use.

One of the main drawbacks of conventional desalination technologies is the substantial energy requirement, which is facing cost increases in. Reverse Osmosis is the dominant technology in water desalination.

However, some critical issues remain open: improvement of water quality, enhancement of the recovery factor, reduction of the unit water cost, minimizing the brine disposal impact.

This book aims to solve these problems with an innovative approach based on the integration of. Desalination is a dynamically growing field with more research, more engineering, more applications, more countries, more people, and with more training programs.

The new generation of desalination processes or plants has to meet the stringent environment discharge requirements and yet the industry remains highly energy efficient and.

Extracting fresh water from seawater requires a great deal of energy, both thermal and mechanical. Renewable energy driven desalination is becoming more viable despite its. Desalination is the removal of salt and contaminants from water. It involves a broad range of technologies that yield access to marginal sources of water such as seawater, brackish ground- and surface water, and wastewater.

Given the reduction in access to fresh water. The book series Advances in Water Desalination is designed to meet the need for knowledge in this evolving field by covering related aspects including science, technology, economics, commercialization, and environmental impacts.

The first volume in this series consists of six entries by top experts from around the world, each treating a. Desalination of sea- aand brackish water is a problem that has attracted widespread government attention and considerable engineering talent.

Since the inception of the U.S. government's formal desalting program inwhen thermal distillation was the only method generally known, great progress has been made in the development of membrane processes for desalination.
