Renewable Energy for Desalination and Advanced Water Treatment: Fundamentals and Applications


Add your own review!

Overview

Water treatment and desalination facilities use a tremendous amount of energy, and often release associated pollution when using conventional fossil-fuel power. This book will present the various types of technologies that could power treatment and desalination plants, such as solar, wind, geothermal, and wave power. It will describe the current status and future trends of each method, as well as membrane and thermal technologies. It will address the economic considerations of renewable energy used for desalination, and the related infrastructure capitalization, and will also offer the best potential power generation options for different regions, including islands and remote locations.
