Description

Low Grade Heat Driven Multi-effect Distillation and Desalination describes the development of advanced multi-effect evaporation technologies that are driven by low grade sensible heat, including process waste heat in refineries, heat rejection from diesel generators or microturbines, and solar and geothermal energy. The technologies discussed can be applied to desalination in remote areas, purifying produced water in oil-and-gas industries, and to re-concentrate process liquor in refineries.

This book is ideal for researchers, engineering scientists, graduate students, and industrial practitioners working in the desalination, petrochemical, and mineral refining sectors, helping them further understand the technologies and opportunities that relate to their respective industries.

For researchers and graduate students, the core enabling ideas in the book will provide insights and open up new horizons in thermal engineering.

About Hui Chua

Professor Hui Tong Chua obtained a Bachelor of Technology Engineering Educator Award 2001/2002, National University of Singapore; 2002/2003 University-level Excellent Teachers Listing - ranked among the top 6.3%, National University of Singapore; 2010 Award for Teaching Excellence (Individual Teaching) by the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, The University of Western Australia; 2011 Shanxi Government Specially Appointed Expert under the Shanxi (China) Hundred Man Program; 2013 Joint winner with Trevor Powell of Impacts Buildings Pty. Ltd. in the "Backyard Category" of The Australian Innovation Challenge for "Solar Desalination" Dr. Bijan Rahimi received his Ph.D. in desalination from the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering of the University of Western Australia (UWA). During his Ph.D. program, he was awarded the Australian Postgraduate Award (APA), NCEDA (National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia) Supplementary Ph.D. Scholarship, UWA Safety Net Top-Up Scholarship and AQW (Alumina Quality Workshop) Student Scholarship. Now, he is working as a visiting assistant professor at the School of Mechanical Engineering of Sharif University of Technology (SUT). He received Iran's National Elites Foundation Award for his work on low grade heat driven desalination and its application in Iran, in June 2016. He is working on a novel desalination pilot plant prototype at the Institute of Water and Energy (IWE) of SUT. He is also collaborating with the Water Research Institute (WRI) of Iran's Ministry of Energy on the formulation of the first desalination research and technology roadmap for Iran.
