Kurzbeschreibung

Introduction to Desalination: Principles, Processes, and Calculations delivers a comprehensive and robust exploration of desalination highlighted with numerous illustrative examples and calculations.


The book is divided into three sections, the first of which offers an introduction to the topic that includes chapters covering global water scarcity and the need for "new water." The second section discusses the desalination process, including evaporation, reverse osmosis, crystallization, hybrid systems, and other potable water processes. The final part covers topics like water conservation, environmental considerations of desalination, economic impacts of desalination, optimization, ethics, and the future of desalination.


The book also includes:

* A comprehensive introduction to desalination, including discussions of engineering principles, the physical, chemical, and biological properties of water, and water chemistry
* An extensive engineering analysis of the various desalination processes
* Practical discussions of miscellaneous desalination topics, including the environmental and economic effects of the technology


Perfect for process, chemical, mechanical, environmental, and civil engineers, Introduction to Desalination: Principles, Prcoesses, and Calculations is also an indispensable resource for materials scientists, operators, and technicians working in the field.
