New Desalination Method Cuts Energy Use By 80% – Australia

Researchers from The Australian National University have introduced a new desalination method that significantly reduces the energy required by about 80% compared to traditional techniques. Freshwater scarcity is a growing issue globally, with some regions already depending on desalination to obtain freshwater from ocean water. Currently, about one-third of freshwater discharges are used by humans, a figure projected to rise to one-half by midcentury, especially in regions such as Israel, Mexico City, India, and southern California.

Acciona Wins €1.7 Billion Contract To Build Desalination Plant -Australia

This is one of the largest water facilities to be built by the Spanish multinational, as the budget allocated by the local authorities for this infrastructure amounts to AU$2.8 billion (about €1.7 billion). According to local media, the plant’s dimensions are gigantic, as it will have a maximum production capacity of up to 100 billion litres per year to provide drinking water for the 2.5 million inhabitants of Perth and the surrounding area, an area characterised by low rainfall. The plant will be powered 100% by clean energy and will sign a PPA to contract the necessary energy [
