  1. 1. Wave Powered Desalination

    Author : Jennifer Leijon; Cecilia Boström; Irina Temiz; Jens Engström; Anna Rutgersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; desalination; marine renewable energy sources; marine current; freshwater; Engineering Science; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : The aim of this licentiate thesis is to investigate opportunities to produce fresh-water and electricity using marine renewable energy sources, such as wave power and marine current power, for water scarce areas. It summarizes the ongoing work within the field and suggests some possibilities of future re-search. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wave Power for Desalination

    Author : Jennifer Leijon; Cecilia Boström; Irina Temiz; Jens Engström; Deborah Greaves; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wave power; desalination; freshwater; engineering education; linear generator; wave energy converter; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis presents work related to wave powered desalination. Wave power for desalination could be an interesting alternative for islands or coastal regions facing freshwater shortage, and several systems have been proposed in literature. However, desalination is a process which demands a lot of energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis and Modelling of Desalination Brines

    Author : Raed Bashitialshaaer; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Modelling.; Field data analysis; Negatively buoyant jet; Experiment; Brine discharge; Desalination; Water supply;

    Abstract : Seawater desalination constitutes an important water supply to the population bordering the Arabian Gulf, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. The three regions represent about 11.8% of the world land area and the countrieshosted approximately 9% of the world population in 1950 and 2008 and are also projected to do so in 2050. READ MORE

  4. 4. Desalination using Membrane Distillation : Experimental and Numerical Study

    Author : Alaa Kullab; Andrew Martin; Mohammed Khayet; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Air gap membrane distillation; applications; experimental and simulation; CFD; physical modification; performance improvement;

    Abstract : Desalination has been increasingly adopted over the last decades as an option, and sometimes as a necessity to overcome water shortages in many areas around the world. Today, several thermal and physical separation technologies are well established in large scale production for domestic and industrial purposes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sustainable and Safe Use of Non-conventional Waters -Reclaimed Water and Desalinated Water

    Author : Shuang Liu; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water reuse; Desalination; Strategy; Water security; Guidelines; Policy; Microbial risk assessment;

    Abstract : Fresh water scarcity, pollution and an uneven distribution have caused an increasingly serious global water crisis. One of the most widely adopted response strategies is the exploitation and use of non-conventional water sources. READ MORE
