Abstracts for Barcelona Conference Due by End of September 2011

DESALINATION FOR THE ENVIRONMENT CLEAN WATER AND ENERGY is slated for April 23-26, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.

This conference on desalination for the environment will be devoted to advances towards providing fresh water for all, at affordable cost and at economical energy requirements. With limited and depleting natural sources, desalination can supplement some of the critically lacking amounts of water needed for sustainable development. Its place in the water cycle will be discussed.

Processes, Problems, Technological Advances:


Feedwater pretreatment for desalination

Seawater desalination by reverse osmosis

Brackish water desalination

Nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration in water treatment processes
