Training will be held at any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.

In this course the various thermal and membrane desalination technologies in practice will be covered; Multi-Stage Desalination (MSF), Multi-Effect Distillation (MED), Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC), Thermal Vapor Compression (TVC), Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Electro dialysis (ED). The basic principles, material and thermal analysis, equipment used, and current practice for each of the desalination processes will be discussed. The course will give the major design equations. Problems facing each process such as corrosion, energy consumption, fouling and scaling will be presented. Energy and economic comparison among the different desalination processes will be given.

  • To provide the background knowledge needed to design, operate and maintain the sea water treatment processes used for heating and cooling applications at peak efficiency with minimal deratings or outages.
  • Thermal Desalination Processes
  • Membrane Separation Processes, Discuss membrane elements and reverse osmosis configuration
  • Desalination Economics.
  • Strategic Issues in Desalination Technology Capacity Building.
  • Renewable Energy Desalination Technologies
  • Recent Trends and Expected Future Developments in Water
  • Desalination Technologies

This seminar is aimed at engineers, scientists and technologists involved in the planning, management and operation of water desalination technology and also for manufacturers, consultants, designers, researchers, water personnel, Water treatment ,boiler plant operators and supervisors, responsible for plant utilities, energy conservation and environmental engineers; managers and operators for industrial processes using steam and/or cooling water; managers and operators of combined cycle generating plants; technical representatives for chemical treatment and service companies; technical representatives for companies.



  • Introduction to thermal desalination processes
  • Multi stage flash (MSF) desalting system: basic principles, thermal analysis, equipment used, and current practice
  • Conventional single and multi-effect (ME) desalination processes: basic principles, thermal analysis, and equipment used
  • Mechanical vapor compression (MVC) desalting system (single and multi effect arrangement): process design, thermal analysis, present status, and equipment selection
  • Thermal vapor compression (TVC) (single and multi effect arrangement): process design and thermal analysis
  • Thermal Vapor Compression (TVC) or Thermo Compression Distillation (TCD) is considered as an efficient technique to produce distilled water without rotating parts like Mechanical compression.
  • Multi-Effect Distillation (MED) desalination technologies can utilize both of Thermal Vapor Compression (TVC) or Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC).
  • Introduction to membrane desalination processes
  • Post-treatment in thermal and membrane systems
