Low Grade Heat Driven Multi-Effect Distillation and Desalination

Authors: Hui Tong Chua, Bijan Rahimi Publisher: Elsevier Science Publication date: 2017 Publication language: Angielski Number of pages: 208 Publication formats: EAN: 9780128052709 ISBN: 9780128052709 Category: Water purification & desalinization Publisher's index: C2015-0-02407-8 Bibliographic note: Dr. Bijan Rahimi received his Ph.D. in desalination from the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering of the University of Western Australia (UWA). During his Ph.D. program, he was awarded the Australian Postgraduate Award (APA), NCEDA (National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia) Supplementary Ph.D. Scholarship, UWA Safety Net Top-Up Scholarship and AQW (Alumina Quality Workshop) Student Scholarship. Now, he is working as a visiting assistant professor at the School of Mechanical Engineering of Sharif University of Technology (SUT). He received Iran’s National Elites Foundation Award for his work on low grade heat driven desalination and its application in Iran, in June 2016. He is working on a novel desalination pilot plant prototype at the Institute of Water and Energy (IWE) of SUT. He is also collaborating with the Water Research Institute (WRI) of Iran’s Ministry of Energy on the formulation of the first desalination research and technology roadmap for Iran.

Low Grade Heat Driven Multi-effect Distillation and Desalination describes the development of advanced multi-effect evaporation technologies that are driven by low grade sensible heat, including process waste heat in refineries, heat rejection from diesel generators or microturbines, and solar and geothermal energy. The technologies discussed can be applied to desalination in remote areas, purifying produced water in oil-and-gas industries, and to re-concentrate process liquor in refineries.

This book is ideal for researchers, engineering scientists, graduate students, and industrial practitioners working in the desalination, petrochemical, and mineral refining sectors, helping them further understand the technologies and opportunities that relate to their respective industries.

For researchers and graduate students, the core enabling ideas in the book will provide insights and open up new horizons in thermal engineering.

  • Focuses on advanced, yet practical, distillation technologies using low-grade sensible heat
  • Explains the new design paradigm that must accompany the development of technologies
  • Contains key experimental data that serves to prove the core concepts that underpin the new technologies
  • Covers extensive thermo-economic analyses of the technologies, the price point for adoption, capital cost comparison with existing technologies, operating costs, and net present values
