Novel desalting

Novel desalting can exploit the unique properties of water and saline solutions. The Centre was particularly interested in identifying and piloting novel technologies for Australia’s rural and remote needs, against a benchmark of brackish water reverse osmosis (BWRO).

These were the primary research areas:

  1. Novel technologies including those for direct agricultural and industrial use;
  2. Low-maintenance, reliable evaporative technologies using waste heat or renewable energy;
  3. Coupling water production with renewable energy; and
  4. Piloting breakthrough near-commercial desalination technologies in real-world situations.

Novel Desalting

Across the five Priority Research Themes, investment in novel desalting research represented 18% of the Centre’s total research investment, with 21 of the 50 projects addressing one or more of these primary areas.

Please see the Programs and Projects for details on individual projects.

@JamesMcHale Thanks James! 50% of the water in your glass in Perth is desalinated. #Desal is playing a vital part in water security.
