Desalination features, January 2013

Electrodialysis-based technologies were used to treat an industrial saline water, with both electrodialysis (ED) and bipolar membrane electrodialysis (EDBM

Wastewater desalination using electrodialysis reversal to provide recycled water for horticultural irrigation

Australian researchers have evaluated a membrane desalination system based on electrodialysis reversal (EDR), for its capacity to remove salt from treated


Natural organic matter (NOM) in seawater can cause biofouling problems in seawater facilities. This work reports on the use of a biofilter to prevent biolo


This paper reviews the state-of-the-art in reverse osmosis (RO) desalination. It looks at materials science developments in conventional thin-film composit


Bürkert, the German fluid technology specialist, has developed an automated system for continuously monitoring reverse osmosis systems for the desalination


Ultrafiltration has become an increasingly important membrane separation technology in recent years. Anthony Bennett describes the fundamentals of ultrafil


Multi-effect tubular desalination devices have been designed and constructed. The performance ratio of the three-effect devices can reach about 1.7, which
