Application of innovative nuclear reactor concepts for seawater desalination in southern Europe (EURODESAL). Final report

Project ID: FIKI-CT-2000-20078
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


This report summarises investigations undertaken as part of the EURODESAL nuclear desalination project, whose major achievements were:
- Coherent demonstration of the technical feasibility of nuclear desalination through the elaboration of high performance coupling schemes for optimum cogeneration of electricity and water and by exploring the unique capabilities of the innovative nuclear reactors and desalination technologies;
- Verification that the integrated system design does not adversely affect nuclear reactor safety;
- Development of codes and methods for an objective economic assessment of the competitiveness and sustainability of proposed options through comparison, in European conditions, with fossil and renewable energy based systems.
