Enhanced zero discharge seawater desalination using hybrid solar technology

Objective

Proposal addressed to perform an innovative development of environmentally friendly seawarer desalination with zero discharge brine. Scientific and technological developments will be focused in the increasing of current Performance Ratio of conventional MED desalination systems by the inclusion of a double heat pump to energy recovering from brine, the use of brine to the commercial production of salt, avoiding any discharge, and coupling a hybrid solar/gas-fired cost-efficient thermal energy system. Final developed system is expected to have remarkable environmental features, with relevant aspects in energy efficiency and water production cost, when compared with conventional MED systems.
