About the book
As a result of population growth, industrialization and climate change, the water demand is expected to increase and seawater desalination is accepted as an integral part of the water supply circuit in most of the countries. The future desalination processes not only need to meet economic criteria related to CAPEX and OPEX but also environmental sustainability requirements in terms of CO2 emissions, brine and chemical rejections. This book aims to explore the possible practical desalination processes to meet the sustainable water supplies in future to continue the life cycle and to maintain industrial development trend. It will help to bridge the knowledge gap between the real industry and scientific community by showcasing the major challenges faced by the current desalination industry and how innovative processes played an important role to resolve seawater and brackish water treatment issues. The target of this book is to link the industry with experts by sharing their experiences for future sustainable water supplies.
