This course will introduce you to water desalination technologies, processes and methods. You will learn the importance of site and water source selection. You will be introduced to an approach for selecting the appropriate desalination technology and process. You will learn about distillation/condensation techniques, membrane techniques and ion exchange techniques. You will find out how to develop process concepts, evaluate their utility, and move forward into preliminary design for projects and sites where water desalination is an operational requirement. This course will give engineers and others an introduction to technologies, processes and techniques for treating saline water, such as from the sea, to provide potable or suitable process water to meet the operational requirements of facilities and activities.
