Watersolutions AG introduces the Watersolutions LTD system, a patented, cost-effective thermal process for seawater desalination based on the principle of low temperature distillation (LTD). Simple to install, robust and highly efficient with low running and maintenance costs, the Watersolutions LTD System can achieve significant savings in operating costs (OPEX) excluding depreciation, which are projected at only 1/3 -1/2 of existing processes. Unlike conventional desalination technologies,...

In this month's Physics World, Jason Reese, Weir Professor of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Strathclyde, describes the role that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) could play in the desalination of water, providing a possible solution to the problem of the world's ever-growing population demanding more and more fresh drinking water. Global population projections suggest that worldwide demand for water will increase by a third before 2030. But with more than a billion people...

U.S. engineers say they've developed a portable water desalination system that can substantially reduce the costs and time involved in producing clean water. The UCLA researchers said their new mini-mobile-modular smart water desalination and filtration system called M3 also provides an all-in-one mobile testing plant that can be used to test nearly any water source. The advantages of this type of system are that it can cut costs, and because it is mobile, only one M3 system needs to be built...
