There has been an exponential increase in desalination capacity both globally and nationally since 1960, fueled in part by growing concern for local water scarcity and made possible to a great extent by a major federal investment for desalination research and development. Traditional sources of supply are increasingly expensive, unavailable, or controversial, but desalination technology offers the potential to substantially reduce water scarcity by converting the almost inexhaustible supply of seawater and the apparently vast quantities of brackish groundwater into new sources of freshwater. Desalination assesses the state of the art in relevant desalination technologies, and factors such as cost and implementation challenges. It also describes reasonable long-term goals for advancing desalination technology, posits recommendations for action and research, estimates the funding necessary to support the proposed research agenda, and identifies appropriate roles for governmental and nongovernmental entities.

This is the first volume to cover desalination in such depth and detail, offering engineers, technicians, and operators full coverage of the applications, economics, and expectations of what will certainly become one of the most important water-related processes on the planet. Covering thermal processes and membrane processes, this is the only volume any engineer working in desalination must have, covering both practical and theoretical issues encountered on a daily basis. Certain to be an important contribution to the water management community.

Industrial Chemistry is a book that brings the subject matter of a chemistry curriculum to life. It examines the major chemistry performed by industry and looks at how such chemical processes affect our lives. In addition, as each process is presented and examined, there is a significant discussion dedicated on the by-products, pollution, necessary waste generated, and attempts to make each process more ecologically friendly, or "greener." It bridges the divide between the basic chemistry that students learn in the undergraduate curriculum, and the broader chemical processes that are used in real life.

Membranverfahren haben sich in den vergangenen 15 Jahren von einem exotischen Sonderverfahren zu einem zuverlässigen Standardverfahren entwickelt. Für die Zwecke der Meerwasserentsalzung und Abwasseraufbereitung, aber auch für die Trennung organischer Stoffgemische in der chemischen Industrie stehen Polymer- und anorganische Membranen zur Verfügung, die selektiv, leistungsfähig und in hohem Maße beständig sind. Ausgehend von den verfahrenstechnischen Grundlagen werden in diesem Werk Methoden aufgeführt und hinsichtlich Genauigkeit und Grenzen diskutiert, die den Leser in die Lage versetzen, Anlagen schnell und doch mit ausreichender Sorgfalt auszulegen und mit Alternativen zu vergleichen.
