Book Description :

The use of seawater desalination is an increasingly sought after alternative for new drinking water supplies in coastal areas, particularly as desalination becomes more economical. This new manual of practice parlays lessons learned from recent studies and global seawater desalination projects into guidance for desalination facilities that are reliable, economical, and environmentally sound. This new manual is specifically designed to help water utility managers and design engineers understand desalination–the technologies, the infrastructure, and the costs–to make informed decisions from planning through treatment plant construction. It explains environmental and ecological impacts of desalination plants, seawater intakes, and the disposal of concentrate discharges back into the ocean. Chapters describe the minerals and other constituents that determine source water quality and, therefore, treatment approaches.

Book Description :

Seawater desalination is a coastal-based industry. The growing number of desalination plants worldwide and the increasing size of single facilities emphasises the need for greener desalination technologies and more sustainable desalination projects. Two complementing approaches are the development and implementation of best available technology (BAT) standards and best practice guidelines for environmental impact assessment (EIA) studies. While BAT is a technology-based approach, which favours state of the art technologies that reduce resource consumption and waste emissions, EIA aims at minimizing impacts at a site- and project-specific level through environmental monitoring, evaluation of impacts, and mitigation where necessary. This book contains a comprehensive evaluation and synthesis of the potential environmental impacts of desalination plants, with emphasis on the marine environment and aspects of energy use, followed by the development of strategies for impact mitigating. A concept for BAT for seawater desalination technologies is proposed, in combination with a methodological approach for the EIA of desalination projects. The scope of the EIA studies are outlined, including environmental monitoring, toxicity and hydrodynamic modelling studies, and the usefulness of multi-criteria analysis as a decision support tool for EIAs is explored and used to compare different intake and pretreatment options for seawater reverse osmosis plants.

Book Description :

Various marine species have various response and resilience to increased salinity and brine discharge. To increase SWRO facilities sustainability and minimize their footprint in the coastal environment, sufficient mixing of the brine effluent is important. Diffusor systems generally provide the best mixing, but co-location of SWRO facilities with power plants, already discharging cooling water, minimizes additional impacts of the brine. Local monitoring of the marine benthic environment is encouraged in locations of proposed desalination facilities.

Desalination Technology: Health and Environmental Impacts covers the latest developments in desalination, examining the environmental and public health-related impacts of these technologies. Written by international experts, the text presents specifications for assessing water quality, technical issues associated with desalination technologies, and the chemical aspects of desalinated water and its microbiology. The book also discusses environmental protection issues that assist in the optimization of proposed and existing desalination facilities to ensure that nations and consumers enjoy the benefits of the expanded access to desalinated water. This includes coverage of health and environmental issues such as energy conservation and sustainability as well as protection of delicate coastal ecosystems and groundwater from contamination by surface disposal of concentrates—challenges that must be addressed during the design, construction, and operation of a desalination facility. Development of new and improved desalinization technologies, including major cost reduction trends, have significantly broadened the opportunities to access large quantities of safe water in many parts of the world. And while there are many books available on desalination, this book’s unusual approach blends technical coverage of the latest technologies with coverage of the environmental and public health-related impacts of these technologies, setting it apart from other resources. It provides technical guidance based on the practical expertise of a balanced group of international scientists and engineers.

Book Description :

Industrial desalination of sea and brackish water is becoming an essential part in providing sustainable sources of fresh water for a larger number of communities around the world. Desalination is a main source of fresh water in the Gulf countries, a number of the Caribbean and Mediterranean Islands, and several municipalities in a large number of countries. As the industry expands there is a pressing need to have a clear and well-written textbook that focuses on desalination fundamentals and other industrial aspects. This book focuses on the processes widely used in industry, which include multistage flash desalination and reverse osmosis. Also, other desalination processes with attractive features and high potential are featured. It includes a large number of solved examples, which are explained in simple and careful matter that allow the reader to follow and understand the development. The data used in the development of the examples and case studies are extracted from existing desalination plants. This title also includes comparisons of model predictions against results reported in literature as well as available experimental and industrial data. Several industries include similar unit operation processes, i.e., evaporators, condensers, flashing units, membrane separation, and chemical treatment. Examples of such industries include wastewater treatment, food, petroleum, petrochemical, power generation, and pulp and paper. Process fundamentals and design procedures of such unit processes follow the same procedures given in this textbook.

Book Description :

The Persian Gulf (also known as the Arabian Gulf) is a shallow marginal sea located in a region of Southwest Asia with arid climate. Because of this aridity, evaporation from the Gulf is extremely high (1.84 meters per year) and far exceeds the sum of freshwater inflow to the Gulf, mainly from precipitation and some from river flow. A residual circulation exists between the Gulf and the Indian Ocean such that saline water flows into the Gulf from the Indian Ocean in order to balance the freshwater deficit due to high evaporation rate; and since evaporation only removes freshwater, the salt associated with this inflow from the Indian Ocean is removed in dense saline water that naturally sinks to lower layers and exits the Gulf into the Indian Ocean. The Gulf is also the source of seawater and sink of hypersaline effluent (brine) for many desalination plants representing about 50% of the world's seawater desalination capacity, because many of the countries on the Gulf have increasing human populations but no renewable freshwater resources. It has been recognized long ago that the impact of brine discharge on the Gulf cannot be discussed separately from the dynamics of the residual circulation, but to date there is no basin scale environmental analysis for the impact of seawater desalination activity on the Gulf. A coupled Gulf-Atmosphere Regional Model that simulates the residual circulation between the Gulf and the Indian Ocean is used to investigate the impact of desalination on the salinity of the Gulf. Satellite data on sea surface temperature and water surface elevation are used to constrain the model, and to analyze trends in the Gulf. Four main contributions of this thesis are emphasized. First, the equilibrium state variables describing the Gulf are identified, including a new estimate of Gulf basin salinity of ~~ 40.5 - 41g/kg. Second, it is shown that desalination has minimal impact on salinity averaged at the basin scale but significant impact at regional scale. Changes in regional salinities are used to quantify the impact of desalination in different regions within the Gulf. Third, a specific criterion for placement of brine discharge systems in the Gulf that minimizes regional salt accumulation is proposed in order to guide planning and design of future seawater desalination plants, as well as management of existing plants. Lastly, trend analysis shows a small trend in sea surface temperature (~~2°C during 1993 - 2014), most likely caused by climate change, but slight trends in Gulf basin salinity that are likely due to natural variability.

Book Description :

A growing proportion of the world’s population is dependent on Seawater Desalination as a source of fresh water for both potable and civil use. One of the main drawbacks of conventional desalination technologies is the substantial energy requirement, which is facing cost increases in the global energy market. "Seawater Desalination" presents an overview of conventional and non-conventional technologies, with a particular focus on the coupling of renewable energies with desalination processes. The first section of this book presents, in a technical but reader-friendly way, an overview of currently-used desalination processes, from thermal to membrane processes, highlighting the relevant technical features, advantages and disadvantages, and development potential. It also gives a rapid insight into the economic aspects of fresh water production from seawater. The second section of the book presents novel processes which use Renewable Energies for fresh water production. From the first solar still evaporators, which artificially reproduced the natural cycle of water, technology has progressed to develop complex systems to harness energy from the sun, wind, tides, waves, etc. and then to use this energy to power conventional or novel desalination processes. Most of these processes are still at a preliminary stage of development, but some are already being cited as examples in remote areas, where they are proving to be valuable in solving the problems of water scarcity. A rapid growth in these technologies is foreseen in the coming years. This book provides a unique foundation, within the context of present and future sustainability, for professionals, technicians, managers, and private and public institutions operating in the area of fresh water supply.
