Proc. ASME. ES2023, ASME 2023 17th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, V001T02A009, July 10–12, 2023
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: ES2023-107067
... Abstract With water consumption increasing, populations growing, and climate change affecting natural freshwater sources, global water stress is of increasing concern. To meet the freshwater demand, methods of artificially producing clean water are being explored. Desalination is among the most...

Proc. ASME. ES2022, ASME 2022 16th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, V001T14A001, July 11–13, 2022
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: ES2022-85533
... Abstract Many countries are suffering from water shortage, especially Egypt, which is considered one of the limited regions in fresh-water resources. Desalination has been proven a feasible and promising technology for supplying potable water. However, the main challenge inhibiting the wider...

Paper No: ES2008-54075
... Creating vacuum conditions above liquids increases their evaporation rates. This phenomenon can be integrated into a practical continuous desalination process by repeatedly flashing seawater in vacuumed chambers to produce water vapor that condenses afterwards producing fresh water. Gravity can...
