We are looking at working between [our] water and the power teams to develop a carbon neutral desalination
approach, to be able to desalinate with renewable energy," the company's chief executive officer Roberto de Diego in an interview with The National.
The ultimate aim of the agreement is to provide a framework for mutual cooperation to enhance the economic and technical benefits of desalination
, as well as innovating new methods to reduce the costs of sustainable desalination
pilot programme was a competitive hub with five pilot plants in operation side-by-side: Abengoa , Suez , Veolia /Sidem , Trevi Systems and Mascara Renewable Water .
He announced, to this end, that the seawater desalination
plant of Djerba, with a capacity of 75 thousand cubic meters per day, will be ready by the summer of 2018, which will help to solve the problems of lack of water that occur especially in summer and to ensure the success of the tourist season in Djerba.
still requires a lot of energy -- three to four kilowatt-hours of electricity to make 1000 liters of freshwater using reverse osmosis.
Until now, desalination
in Egypt was largely confined to the industrial sector.
The operation of both the desalination
plants is based on direct seawater intake system design and engineering by Enerzone Engineering Services on TDS over 40,000 ppm.
In addition to six keynote talks by global leaders in the desalination
field, 67 scientific papers focusing on desalination
-related subjects were accepted from across the global academic and research community.

Dr Saif Al Ghais, Director of the Environment Protection and Development Authority, RAK, said a number of water desalination
stations here have been warned against using ground water.
Our goal is to collaborate with the desalination
community to share, bounce and test ideas, as we believe the next wave of innovation could come from the feed spacer," Soltero adds.
While groundwater initiatives last year failed to gain traction in a web of property rights regulation, advocates of seawater desalination
are touting it as a less-regulated, drought-proof way to meet state needs for drinking water and irrigation.
