Title:: Sustainable Recovery of Potable Water from Saline Waters (Khandan)

Project Type: Research

Start Date: 03/01/2006

End Date: 01/01/2007

Congressional District: Second

Focus Categories: Treatment, Water Quality, Conservation

Keywords: desalination, brackish water, solar power

Principal Investigator: Khandan, Nirmala

Federal Funds: $10,000

Non-Federal Matching Funds: $4,510

Abstract: Dr. Nirmala Khandan of the Civil and Geological Engineering Department is developing an integrated solar-powered desalination system and will conduct pilot scale studies on the system. His approach has the potential for wider applications in reclaiming high quality water from wastewaters and industrial side streams such as produced waters from oil fields. An advantage to his approach is that it does not consume nonrenewable energy resources, reduces reliance on energy imports, and is not harmful to the environment.
