Desalination Research

Desalination is one of the primary technological methods of generating additional usable water supplies.

Desalination research

• Reduces capital and operating costs of existing and future technologies;
• Increases operational efficiency; and
• Expands contaminant-removal capabilities.

There are many different kinds of desalination technology: electrodialysis reversal (EDR), reverse osmosis (RO), vacuum distillation, and solar distillation.
