Desalination concentrate management - from ‘waste disposal’ to ‘resource recovery’
Author: Harold Thomas
Date: 9/204
2004 WateReuse Conference

Safe and cost effective disposal of concentrate from desalination facilities is a common problem in many countries particularly in arid inland regions where conventional disposal options provide limited scope to large scale application of the desalination process for community water supply. Concentrate management is indeed a significant factor in reducing the applicability of the desalination methods and in some cases a project stopper.
