From the Back Cover:

The most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of“green” desalination in industrial and municipalapplications.

This book covers all of the processes and equipment necessary todesign, operate, and troubleshoot desalination systems. This hasbecome increasingly important for not only our world’sindustries, but our world’s populations, as pure waterbecomes more and more scarce. Covering the fundamental principlesof desalination technology and membrane processes to the advancedengineering principles necessary for designing a desalinationsystem, Desalination: Water From Water is a must-have for anyoneworking in desalination.

Earlier chapters cover the basic principles, the economics ofdesalination, basic terms and definitions, as well as essentialequipment. The book then goes into the thermal processes involvedin desalination, such as various methods of evaporation,distillation, recompression, and multistage flash. Following thisis an exhaustive discussion of the membrane processes involved indesalination, such as reverse osmosis, forward osmosis, andelectrodialysis. Finally, the book concludes with a chapter on thefuture of these technologies and their role in industry and howthey can be of use to society.

This book is essential for anyone working in water purificationand conservation, engineers, technicians, scientists working inR&D, and operators of deslalination systems. It is also usefulas a textbook for graduate courses in industrial waterapplications.

This outstanding new reference:

  • Provides comprehensive and thorough coverage of desalinationtechnology
  • Covers fundamental processes and equipment for operating andtroubleshooting a desalination system, covering thermal processesand membrane processes
  • Covers more advanced engineering topics for specific industrialapplications, such as system design
  • Written in easy-to-understand language, the text is designedfor engineers for use immediately in implementing a desalinationprogram
