Freeze desalination (FD) has several benefits compared to vaporization-based and membrane-based desalination methods. The FD process needs approximately 1/7th of the latent heat required by the vaporization-based desalination processes. The involvement of sub-zero temperature in FD reduces the risk of corrosion and scaling. This paper reviews the advances in FD methods involving stand-alone and hybrid methods that operate with and without utilizing the energy released during the re-gasification… 

Saline Diffusion Modeling for Sodium Chloride Aqueous Solutions: Freezing for Desalination Purposes

Given the high human demand for freshwater and its consequent scarcity, desalination processing seems to be a key solution, given the vast amount of seawater on the planet. Currently, desalination

Olive oil mill wastewater treatment by a combined process of freezing, sweating and thawing

The aim of this work is the treatment of olive oil mill wastewater (OMW) by a combined process based on freezing, sweating and thawing. The process consists of two main steps: (i) cooling and

Comparative Removal of Cr(VI) and F− Ions from Water by Freezing Technology

Trace element ions, such as Cr(VI) and F−, are of particular interest due to their environmental impact. Both ions exhibit an anionic nature in water that can show similar removal tendencies except



Desalination of seawater through progressive freeze concentration using a coil crystallizer

In this century, the shortage of clean water supply is an issue of concern and the problem is expected to become more serious in the future. Consequently, researchers are trying to find the best

Freeze desalination of seawater using LNG cold energy.

Evaluation of the performance of a new freeze desalination technology

The use of desalination technologies which produce concentrated brines is acutely limited by inadequate waste brine disposal mechanisms such that the brine does not contaminate fresh water resources.
