Power plants are under increasing pressure to reduce freshwater use, and desalination technologies may provide an alternative water source. This report discusses water quality needs in fossil-fired power plants, mature and emerging desalination technologies, and research needs.
Continuous, Low-Temperature and Membrane-Free Water Desalination Using Directional Solvent Extraction and Waste Heat from Power Plants
Desalination technologies such as reverse osmosis and thermal distillation are energy- and cost-intensive. This study examines the feasibility and costs of using directional solvent extraction with abundant, low-grade waste heat from power plants as an alternative desalination technology.
