Panel 5:
Desalination, Filtration and Purity Detection



The

southwest

of

USA

and

northwest

of

Mexico

are

one

of

the

fastest

growing

regions
.

We

are

faced

with

the

challenge

of

expanding

the

basic

service

infrastructure

to

fulfill

the

growing

demand,

particularly

fresh

water
.


Introduction


South

of

the

border

the

sources

for

the

water

being

supplied

to

satisfy

the

current

demand,

are

being

operated

at

the

limit

of

their

capacity

and

locally

there

is

no

other

groundwater

sources

.

Given that, the State Water Commission has considered


desalinating sea water to satisfy their requirements.

Which method of desalination


is most appropriate?

Where ?

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the most popular desalination
process used in the world. Improvements in efficiency
have led to reduce energy consumption, cheaper
processing costs.


In

October

2009
,

the

State

Water

Commission

of

Baja

California,

established

a

General

Agreement

for

Collaboration

with

the

Center

for

Scientific

Investigation

and

Higher

Education

of

Ensenada

(CICESE)

to

characterize

the

site

to

place

a

desalting

plant

and

perform

the

environmental

impact

assessment
.



CICESE

is

a

Public

Research

institution

coordinated

by

the

National

Council

for

Science

and

Technology

(CONACYT

)
