Thermal Distillation and Electrodialysis Technologies for Desalination
Water is one of the scarce resources in the world. Naturally occurring freshwater sources are rainwater, surface water, and groundwater. After conventional treatment, most of the water can be directly used for various purposes. The demand for water to serve the world continues to increase; however, freshwater supplies are finite, it is becoming more difficult to develop them on a renewable basis. In addition, water pollution is becoming increasingly serious as a result of which water sources are greatly affected.
