Plaza A (Hilton San Francisco)
#495 - Desalination Processes - I (T1000)
Advances in seawater desalination including but not limited to membrane and thermal desalination, concentrate handling, feed intake and integrated desalination-energy systems. Desalination of brackish groundwater and high salinity surface water in inland locations. Such locations represent a challege of concentrate handling and thus require operation at high product water recovery or zero-liquid discharge.
