Thermal Desalination Driven by an Innovative Salinity Gradient Solar Pond Located in the Coastal Waters of Open Seas (2015)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on April 10, 2015

This presentation, prepared by Dr. Ir. Ing. Dick G. Klaren of Klaren International, proposes the use of a salinity gradient solar pond (SGSP) in coastal waters as renewable energy source for thermal desalination. The document was presented at the CWC Technical Seminars featured at the Saudi Water & Power Forum (SWPF), held between 12 and 14 January in Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Solar Thermal Seawater Distillation Activities at the Plataforma Solar de Almería (2003)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 17, 2011

This article was written by a group of researchers from the Almeria Solar Platform in Spain (CIEMAT) and explores the results of the research activities undertaken in this Platform with respect to solar desalination in the framework of the Aquasol Project.

Solar desalination is a feasible and attractive option for regions suffering from fresh water shortage and benefiting from high insolation levels.

The Aquasol Project initiated in 2002 and is expected to reduce the overall system investment cost as well as improve energy efficiency.
