Experimental desalination&solar facility inaugurated Borg El Arab – Egypt

The Multipurpose Applications by Thermodynamic Solar (MATS) plant in Borg El Arab, Egypt has been inaugurated. A research and development initiative aimed at advancing solar energy technology in Egypt and the Middle East, the project was led by a consortium of 11 partners from Italy, France, Egypt, Germany, and the UK, Orascom Construction said in a statement. According to the company, it participated in the funding and the construction of the project. The European Union reportedly co-financed the initiative. The MAT plant comprises an integrated concentrated solar power (CSP) and water desalination facility that can serve a community [

Scientists are looking for new ways to desalinate water using energy resources that reduce dependence on dwindling fossil fuels

Harnessing solar and geothermal energy for desalination.

The Middle East relies heavily on fossil fuels to drive modern desalination technologies that are used to grow food. Currently only 1 percent of desalinated water comes from renewable resources. Intermittent or low energy supplies are a problem for agricultural settings, where grid networks may not always stretch. Better ways to capture and store renewable energy resources could increase the sustainability of using desalinated water, making it cheaper and easier to use. “This is a moment of innovation. You can see that in Saudi Arabia, in Oman, in the Emirates and [

Desalination project eyed to solve water supply lack – Philippines – Panglao Island

The Provincial Development Council (PDC) of Bohol had identified a solution to the twin problems of scarce supply of potable water and high cost of electricity besetting the development of Bohol’s tourism capital, Panglao Island.

The PDC, during a meeting last September 8, endorsed the proposed water desalination facility in Dauis, one of the two towns in Panglao Island, which will utilize partly of renewable energy.

Boheco-1 is providing power to the area, “but the proposed project [will use] solar panels during daytime operation.” Dauis planning and development coordinator Oscar Nistal said the lot of the project [

Motion of the Ocean Generates Fresh Water (RO)

Sandia Labs’ findings have helped Atmocean attract about $3.5 million in investment to continue product testing, add staff and boost component manufacturing at Reytek. The company built full-size seawater pumps and tested the system off the coast of Oregon in 2011 and off Peru for six months in 2015. “The first Peru tests were a big success,” Kithil said. “Other small communities want to see if it will work for them.”

Atmocean is working now with Sandia Labs engineer Tim Koehler on computational modeling of the wave energy system. Following trials in a test tank at the Texas A&M [
