Although more than 70% of the globe is covered with water, only a small portion is suitable for direct human use, making the scarcity of freshwater one of our plant's most serious challenges. In this context "desalination", defined as "the removal of salt from water", is one of the possible solutions for overcoming our planet's municipal and industrial thirst.
By drawing upon the authoritative expertise of a remarkable team of international authors, this book aims to provide an encompassing and "multidisciplinary" introduction to various aspects of desalination. The forte of this publication is that it does not overtly focus on a particular sub-topic of desalination, but rather addresses the topic as a whole. In other words, the unique assortment of reader-friendly chapters is designed to strike a delicate balance between the technical and non-technical.
The book is divided into five general sections:
Water scarcity; integrated water management; desalination; thermal desalination; multi-stage flash; multi effect distillation; thermal vapour compression; membrane desalination; reverse osmosis; forward osmosis; electro dialysis reversal; history of desalination; research and development; water energy nexus, energy minimization and recovery; brine management; rural desalination; cost and feasibility analysis; market survey; business development; future prospects.
