Course Description

Over the past decade, water scarcity, changes in global climate patterns, and urban growth have led planner  twoared explitation of non-conventional resources. Water desalination one of the strongest altrnative for conventional resources to compensite for water defeicincy. The technologies of existing desalination systems will be discussed in terms of basic principles, design and selection of key desalination plant components, desalinated water post-treatment, and concentrate management. The factors which limit the performance or the affordability of these systems will be highlighted. 

Course Objectives

  • Providing a theoretical basis and practical information about desalination technology
  • Being familiar with the desalination processes using thermal, membrane, and alternative technologies
  • Realizing the principles of Monitoring, Surveillance, and EIA of Desalination Projects
  • Being capable of selecting appropriate membrane process for a specific application
  • Identifying appropriate pre-treatment and post treatment schemes
