Study and evaluation of the characteristics of saline wastewater (brine) produced by desalination and industrial plants

This study presents and analyzes for the first time the characteristics of different brine effluents to prevent environmental pollution and to recover valuable resources enabling the concept of waste-to-resource (circular water economy model).

Water-energy nexus: desalination technologies and renewable energy sources

The main objective of this review is to analyze and evaluate desalination technologies and RES (solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and biomass) that could be combined as an integrated process and to discuss social-economic factors, environmental concerns, current challenges, and future research areas.

Solar Desalination by Humidification–Dehumidification: A Review

The scarcity of drinkable water supplies is becoming a serious and troubling challenge to long-term development. This issue emphasises the urgency of implementing rapid water desalination options.

Cleaning Strategies and Cost Modelling of Experimental Membrane-based Desalination Plants

In Project WASTEC, an experimental Reverse Osmosis (RO) desalination system was developed. It serves as a platform for testing new technologies. For this system, we solved two problems, which are



Integrated processes for desalination and salt production: A mini-review

The scarcity of fresh water due to the rapid growth of population and industrial activities has increased attention on desalination process as an alternative freshwater supply. In desalination

Future sustainable desalination using waste heat: kudos to thermodynamic synergy

There has been a plethora of published literature on thermally-driven adsorption desalination (AD) cycles for seawater desalination due to their favorable environmentally friendly attributes, such as

High-Pressure Reverse Osmosis for Energy-Efficient Hypersaline Brine Desalination: Current Status, Design Considerations, and Research Needs

Water scarcity, expected to become more widespread in the coming years, demands renewed attention to freshwater protection and management. Critical to this effort are the minimization of freshwater

Desalination, Trends and Technologies

The quality of the environment, worldwide water scarcity and clean energy are central concerns of modern science, engineering and technology. They are already being linked to the crucial, actual
