There are several options for removing salt from natural sources like ocean water,
As the global demand for limited resources of fresh water increases, it seems obvious to turn to saltwater resources and desalination technology
In certain circumstances, low concentrations of brine can be used in agriculture for irrigation.
In dealing with brine that has gone through a desalination process, there are several options for disposal
The rate of evaporation is the key factor affecting efficiency in a brine pond.
All brine containment ponds must be constructed with an impermeable, chemically resistant liner
In calculating cost factors for evaporative ponds, there’s a common assumption that larger ponds equal greater efficiency and lower cost.
Evaporation ponds are an ancient technology used around the world to produce salt for human usage
Brine is a solution of water and some amount of salt(s) in varying concentrations.
Single phase desalination processes always keep the source water in a liquid state.
Simply put, desalination is any process that removes salt and minerals from water.
It’s a startling statistic, but only about 1% of the world’s water is fresh
