In seawater desalination, energy requirements are substantial, with an estimated 25-50% of the plant operational cost tied to electricity usage. Modest reductions in desalination energy usage are expected to have substantial market value, as evidenced by the recent acquistion of NanoH20, developer of a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane that can reduce energy usage by 5-10% at over 20 times its current operating revenue. Theoretically, seawater can be desalinated at 1 kwh/m3of water treated; however, in practice, total energy requirements for the plant are closer to 3-4 kwh/m3. With advances in new RO membrane only yielding modest energy reductions and the global desalination market projected to grow 2-3 times by the end of the decade, there is strong interest in optimizing the desalination flow sheet to lower energy usage closer to the theoretical minimum.

There are several approaches to reduce energy demands in a desalination facility, from pressure recovery devices and heat exchangers to optimized pretreatment processes and integrated data monitoring systems.

Panelists will discuss a wide range of current and innovative technologies being applied to optimize electricity consumption, and what markets and applications these devices are currently utilized.
