Saudis launch national solar desalination initiative

Abstract:
The King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology announced on 24 January 2010 the launch of the National Initiative for Solar Water Desalination (NISWD) under the patronage of the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The city mayor, Dr Mohammed Al-Suwaiyel, said that the initiative aimed to find technical solutions at low costs to contribute to the national economy. He pointed to the development of advanced technologies through the Joint Center for Nanotechnology Research between the city and IBM Global, a move aimed towards the practical application of advanced nanotechnology in the production of solar energy systems and membranes for water desalination.
