  title={Renewable and sustainable approaches for desalination},
  author={Veera Gnaneswar Gude and N. Nirmalakhandan and Shuguang Deng},
Freshwater and energy are essential commodities for well being of mankind. Due to increasing population growth on the one hand, and rapid industrialization on the other, today’s world is facing unprecedented challenge of meeting the current needs for these two commodities as well as ensuring the needs of future generations. One approach to this global crisis of water and energy supply is to utilize renewable energy sources to produce freshwater from impaired water sources by desalination… CONTINUE READING
