With over one quarter of the world’s population living within less than 25 kilometres of the coast, seawater desalination is a vital technology for water treatment.
Desalination involves using membrane technology to remove salts from water to produce potable water.
Desalination can also be used for the following:
- Recovering valuable products for the manufacturing industry
- Treating industrial and municipal wastewater
- Turning seawater and brackish water into potable water
The development of desalination technologies over the last ten years has reduced capital, operating costs and especially the energy consumed. However, the careful selection of the most appropriate solution depends on the source of the feed and the treated water quality required so that the costs and environmental impact of the solution can be minimised.
