. Our MVC plants use waste steam to generate electricity. This means operational costs are reduced and less steam is released into the environment Wave-powered desalination Multiple-effect distillation or multi-effect distillation (MED) is a distillation process often used for sea water desalination. It consists of multiple stages or effects. In each stage the feed water is heated by steam in tubes, usually by spraying saline water onto them
Multi-Stage Flash (MSF) evaporation desalination plants are based on flash evaporation in a cascade of stages (effects) at different pressure levels. In the brine-recirculation mode, the brine is recirculated through the system The considered MED desalination plant has a horizontal falling film (HFF), and high temperature anti-scale treatment. It has five units formed by 14 cascade effects, the plant produces about of 45,000 m 3 /day of desalinated water

This capacity is obtained by eight MED units, each with a nominal capacity of 25,000 m3/day. The plants were erected in two phases of four units each. This capacity ca Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has signed an agreement with the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) in Saudi Arabia to co-build what will be the world's largest single multi-effect distillation (MED) desalination unit
Multiple-Effect Distillation (also Multi Effect Distillation or MED) is a thermal distillation technology based on evaporation and condensation processes in multiple stages, called effects, that is mainly used for desalination The solar-powered MED system is more environmentally benign than standard Reverse Osmosis (RO) desalination, requiring only a fraction of the electrical power consumed by large-scale RO plants, slashing the ongoing operating costs of a desalination plant This paper is related to the previous work (Manenti et al., Parametric Simulation and Economic Assessment of Heat Integrated Geothermal Desalination Plant, Desalination, 317, 193-205, 2013) and extends the steady-state simulation and process layout optimization by investigating the procedure to start up multi-effect distillation (MED) desalination plants The plant is integrated, first, with a multi-stage flash (MSF) unit and, then, with a multi-effect desalination (MED) unit, and it is evaluated using energy and exergy analyses. We find that the generated power of the integrated systems is decreased by 9.7% and 8.5% with the MED and the MSF units, respectively
The MED method has the advantage of reducing energy consumption if applied with dump heat, and is mostly used for medium-capacity desalination plants. Its principle is to spray seawater on the outside of metal tubes to condense the vapor flowing inside Increasingly, thermal desalination and reverse osmosis are being combined, an innovation that allows electricity use to be optimized and reduces production costs.Veolia is the only company in the world to master both MED and Reverse Osmosis to offer energy-efficient hybrid desalination. This solution was implemented in 2010 at the Fujairah 2 plant in United Arab Emirates Thermal Desalination (MED & MVC) | IDE Technologies IDE's MED units are the industry's most reliable, robust and cost-efficient seawater desalination solutions. With capacities ranging from 600 to 25,000 m 3 /day per unit, the MED units produce a reliable, low-cost stream of high purity water for power plants and industries that can provide low-grade steam as an energy source
2.2 Desalination by distillation. Distillation is the oldest and most commonly used method of desalination. The world's first land-based desalination plant, a multiple-effect distillation (MED) process plant that had a capacity of 60 m 3 /day, was installed on Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles, in 1928. Further commercial development of land-based seawater distillation units took place in the. . The Greenfield development is also producing 2000 MW of power.

desalination and how the waste heat concept can give opportunities for MD. 1.1 Membrane distillation progress and technological challenges MD is a hybrid of membrane and thermal desalination. The MD process classically uses membranes that are hydrophobic and microporous. The driving force is a vapour pressure difference across the membrane. The vapour evolved from the feed solution passes throug Desalination of sea and brackish water is a common technique to alleviate the in creasing shortage of fresh water in many areas of the world today. Nonetheless, desalination processes require large quantities of energy, so their implementation is jeopardized by a significant environmental impact if fossil fuels are used Desalination of seawater is an alternative solution in arid zones to provide potable water. In south Morocco, the National Office of Electricity and Water (ONEE) has built many desalination factories. However, the osmosis water (permeate) is unbalanced and has a corrosive character. Therefore, a post-treatment of remineralization is necessary to return to water its calcio-carbonic equilibrium and to protect the distribution pipelines from corrosion degradation.

Using a desalination plant for water purification is much more viable in terms of efficiency and cost than building your own. Here are some of the reasons why desalination plant importance has increased in last few decades: 1. What is desalination Plant . Desalination is a process of water treatment that removes mineral components from saline water. It involves removal of components like salts. A solar desalination plant consisting of solar parabolic collectors, steam generators, and MED unit was simulated technoeconomically and optimized using multiobjective genetic algorithm. A simulation code was developed using MATLAB language programming. Indirect steam generation using different thermal oils including THERMINOL VP1, THERMINOL66, and THERMINOL59 was also investigated. Objective function consisted of 17 essential parameters such as diameter of heat collector element, collector. The desalination plant is a parallel/cross flow MED with 4 effects, shown in the right side of Figure 1. In this configuration, feed seawater was split into four streams and sprayed on the heat exchanger surface of each effect. Here, feed seawater partly evaporated by exploiting the heat of the complete condensation of the vapor produced in the previous effect. In the case of the first effect. Multiple effect evaporation desalination (MED) needs about 2 kWh of electrical energy plus 80.6 kWh of heat at 70 degrees C for the production of one cubic metre of water
desalination plant is initially split into two streams. 97% of the feed is sent through a low pressure pump, used to overcome hydraulic losses through the circuit. The other 3% is used to blend with the RO and MED permeate streams to ensure a 500 ppm product. Following the low pressure pump, feed movin desalination plant.
