Spearheading Sustainability: Brining Desalination and Renewable Energy Together                                                            At the end of last year, Dr. Abdullah Al-Alshaikh was elected as the new president of the International Desalination Association (IDA). What are his ambitions for the organisation? Can the renewable and desalination industries really work together? How will his legacy be remembered?

Sun shines on Saudi’s renewable desalination                                                                                                                          Saudi Arabia is responsible for 18% of the world's desalination capacity. Behind this amount and 28 desalination plants is the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC). Governor of the organisation, H.E. Dr Abdulrahman Al-Ibrahim, speaks exclusively to WWi magazine about plans to increase current solar powered desalination capacity by ten times and privatisation progress…

 Thermal desalination could be reinvigorated by solar power                                                                                                  Although membrane based, seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination has taken over globally from thermal technology, the use of solar power has been touted as one way to help close the gap…
