The most efficient desalination technique currently in use is reverse osmosis.org/news/2011-07-desalinating-seawater-minimal-energy. The magazine "Pictures of the Future" reports that the new technique uses an electric field to remove the salt from the water. which consumes more than twice as much energy. and the Caribbean by mid-2012. Plans call for demonstration units to be set up in Singapore. Siemens has cut the energy needed to desalinate seawater by more than 50 percent. 2011 Enlarge At a pilot facility in Singapore. the U..

com/Graphene http://phys.#nRlv#nRlv Page 4 of 10 Experts estimate that global water consumption will rise by 40 percent over the next 15 years. the process becomes inefficient as the salt concentration declines because the water’s electrical resistance increases. They hope the model will help them to better understand the transport of the ions through the membranes as well as the dynamics of the water flow in the electric field. which still consumes a lot of energy.It's Critical To Modern Life Here Is Why You Need To Invest Now OutsiderClub. In this system. the researchers will simulate the processes at the molecular level.org/news/2011-07-desalinating-seawater-minimal-energy. It extracts the salts’ positively and negatively charged ions from the water by means of an electric field. The new energy-saving system from Siemens uses electrodialysis. That’s why a Continuous Electrodeionization (CEDI) system is used to extract the last percentage of salt in the water. which presses the water through a filter. they are increasingly desalinating seawater. Because desert countries and small nations such as Singapore have few sources of fresh water. with which the company generated about €28 billion in sales in fiscal year 2010. reverse osmosis.

Turning one cubic meter of seawater into steam takes about 10 kilowatt-hours of electricity.html 05/09/2013 . ion exchange resins located between the membranes capture the ions and transport them away from the water. consumes about four kilowatt-hours for the same amount of water. Experts from Siemens Corporate Technology are currently working on a simulation model that will help further improve the process. Siemens developed the new desalination technique at the Singapore WaterHub. Special membranes that only allow a single type of ion to pass through create channels that collect either the resulting brine or the purified water. a research center for water treatment systems. By contrast.
