Development of an innovative plate multi-effect evaporator for seawater desalination

Objective

Water scarcity is a global major concern. The use of alternative water sources, such as desalination, is a high potential solution in sustainable development perspective. A qualified workforce has been implemented to promote research and development of an innovative desalination process, based on plate Multi-Effect Distillation, which focuses on four attractive points: low investment and running costs, construction-friendly, high modularity, low-level energy requirements. Economic, political, end-user issues and environmental considerations influence the challenging water desalination market. Water management and desalination policies have to be considered at a regional, social and economic scale. A user-oriented market analysis will enhance the pertinence of the dissemination phase up to industrialisation.
