  • A desalination plant essentially separates saline water into two streams: one with a low concentration of dissolved salts (the fresh water stream) and the other containing the remaining dissolved salts (the concentrate or brine stream).
  • Desalination is often viewed as a solution to many water supply problems and is often hailed as a ‘drought resistant’ supply.
  • Distillation is the oldest and most commonly used method of desalination. It is the major source of fresh water for the Middle East.
  • A desalination plant can be located on the coast or inland, depending on the water source.
  • A distinct advantage of desalination of seawater is that it is climate proof and can continue to produce at full capacity even if declining rainfall means dam storages and rivers are dwindling and groundwater aquifers shrinking.
  • Desalination is used to produce potable water from water sources containing dissolved chemicals, and is most often used when water sources are salty; producing fresh water from sea water or brackish water.
  • Technologies developed for desalination applications include distillation, reverse osmosis, electro-dialysis, and vacuum freezing. Distillation
    technologies include Multiple Effect Distillation (MED) and Multi-Stage Flashing (MSF).
  • Reverse Osmosis is a process of desalination in which seawater diffuses through a
    membrane under high pressure, removing salts and impurities to ensure the water is suitable for drinking.
  • A solar desalination process has been introduced using
    air humidification and dehumidification. In order to increase the output of freshwater, multi-technologies are adopted, the double-pass solar air heater and tubular solar collector are used to heat the air and seawater respectively.
  • Solar Desalination is applicable in all areas with ‘sunlight” and facing water contaminations from sea water, excess of iron, fluoride, nitrates, arsenic, calcium hardness etc.
  • The multi effect distillation (MED) process has been used for industrial distillation for a long time.
  • The process which accounts for the most desalting capacity is multi-stage flash distillation, commonly referred to as the MSF process.
  • The vapour compression (VC) distillation process is generally used for small and medium scale sea water desalting units.
  • RO is a membrane separation process in which the water from a pressurised saline solution is separated from the solutes (the dissolved material) by flowing through a membrane. No heating or phase change is necessary for this separation. The major energy required for desalting is for pressurising the feed water.
  • Electrodialysis and reverse osmosis systems will not yield suitable water for agriculture but are more flexible in location and can efficiently treat reservoirs of brackish water (BW).
  • The major Desalination plant suppliers have been from Europe (35%), Japan/Korea (28%) and the USA (27%). Most MSF plants have been supplied by European or Japanese/Korean companies, whereas the USA and Europe are the most important sources for RO plants.
  • Worldwide membrane and thermal desalination capacity is over 11 billion gallons per
    day from over 12 thousand plants, worth $9.2 billion per year, growing at rate of 12% per year.
  • Market share of desalination in the overall water market, estimated at US$ 400 billion, is a miniscule 0.1 percent. According to the International Desalination Association (IDA), the global desalination market is expected to grow to US$ 95 billion through 2005 to 2015.
  • A major restricting factor on the widespread use of desalination (market penetration to a level where it is in common use) is the lack of funding (availability of investment capital or research funds) and its economic viability.
  • China and India are also set to enter the large-scale seawater desalination market.
