DESALINATION RESOURCES

  • Seawater Desalination Using RO Membranes To Support A Thriving Agricultural Economy

    As the agriculture economy boomed, needs for freshwater demanded by irrigation, tourism and the local community also grew in Campo de Dalías, a coastal region on the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, the region faced overexploitation of groundwater aquifers. Read the full case study to learn how Toray was selected as the sole membrane supplier for a two-pass system for a newly implemented national desalination plan.

  • All Eyes On Iran

    Iran is facing a water crisis. The World Resources Institute says it’s number 4 on the crisis list after Israel, Lebanon, and Qatar.  Water consumption is increasing, aquifers have been drunk dry, and investment is inadequate.

  • Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant Design: Important Criteria To Consider

    When designing anything, whether it be a machine, a program, or a process, there are always a few key factors to consider that can determine the validity of the design. Over the past decade, water and wastewater treatment methods have been focused on developing solutions for the water scarcity epidemic with additional emphasis on sustainability. Seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plant design requires careful analysis with several criteria to consider in the design of these systems.

  • Pros And Cons Of Seawater Desalination Using RO For Drinking Water

    Using seawater desalination RO treatment systems, coastal communities and island nations can achieve clean and safe water. So why do some countries utilize this advanced treatment technology, while others do not?

  • What Are The Environmental Considerations Of A Seawater Treatment Plant?

    A seawater treatment plant was designed as one of the solutions to the recent water scarcity problems. Fresh and drinkable water isn’t easy to find in some places. As the world’s population grows and industrial production increases, even the largest of the world’s freshwater sources can eventually become strained. Therefore, desalination is meant to expand our sources of water across the world.

  • When Water Is Scarce, We Can't Afford To Neglect The Alternatives To Desalination

    This is the second of two articles looking at the increasing reliance of Australian cities on desalination plants to supply drinking water, with less emphasis on the alternatives of water recycling and demand management. So what is the best way forward to achieve urban water security?

  • Cities Turn To Desalination For Water Security, But At What Cost?

    Removing salts and other impurities from water is really difficult. For thousands of years people, including Aristotle, tried to make fresh water from sea water. In the 21st century, advances in desalination technology mean water authorities in Australia and worldwide can supply bountiful fresh water at the flick of a switch.

  • How The Low Price Of Water 'Causes' Water Scarcity

    “How can a coastal city that is flanked by an almost endless bank of water have water scarcity problems?”

  • Trouble In Paradise, And A Plan To Alleviate It

    While San Diego has a reputation for beautiful weather in a sunny seaside setting, its growing population in the southernmost area of rain-starved California is a recipe for trouble in paradise. That challenge has spurred the creation of Pure Water San Diego — a multi-phase, multi-year program with the goal of using recycled water for up to one-third of San Diego’s water supply by the year 2035.

  • Turning Down The Power On High Recovery Desalination — A Global Need

    Envision a world absent of a water crisis, an end to the threatened health and economic welfare affecting nearly 1.5 billion people due to water scarcity. Clean, safe, fresh water is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century and we are only scraping the surface on achieving public awareness. As our global population increases, access to clean water decreases; a metric with diminishing returns.

  • Arkal Super Galaxy Self-Cleaning Disc Filter

    The Arkal Super Galaxy is a high-flow rate, self-cleaning, automatic disc filter. It is practical for water and wastewater treatment plants, central water systems for irrigation, large cooling tower power plants, ballast water, and saltwater, as it handles desalination. In addition, it controls algae and reduces hydraulic filtration degrees to less than 20 microns. Its vertical and horizontal installation options accommodate all space issues.

  • Process Instrumentation And Analytics Solutions For Water And Wastewater

    Supplying drinking water to the population and treating wastewater are two very important global challenges. On a daily basis, system planners, designers and operators are required to keep the global increase in water consumption under control in the face of growing water shortages and the salination of fresh water resources. As industry experts for water applications, we offer powerful, innovative technical solutions to assist you.

  • WATERTRAK™ Electrodeionization Electrodeionization (EDI) is a membrane process that removes ions from the water to produce ultra pure water. EDI is comprised of ion exchange resin and membranes.
