Seawater desalination: a sustainable solution to world water
Seawater desalination: a sustainable solution to world water
There are many parts of the world currently experiencing drought conditions combined with a water supply that is unfit for human consumption. Scarcity of water also results in reduced availability for food production. Alternative water sources are necessary for sustainable development.
Seawater desalination provides a climate-independent source of drinking water. However, community perception that the process is energy intensive and environmentally damaging still exists.
This paper addresses the methodology adopted for the design, construction and operation of the Adelaide Desalination Plant (ADP) in South Australia, based on robust sustainable planning principles.
