The new book "desalination.com - an environmental primer" by Tom Pankratz of CH2M Hill and John Toner of Water CI covers alternative project delivery methods and other public-private partnership concepts that now characterise most new desalination projects.

The book also explains the technological advances that have reduced desalination costs and greatly increased the number and size of new installations. This book describes membrane and thermal processes in concise, easy-to-understand language with many descriptive photographs and figures. Colour illustrations describe the steam, water and brine flow paths in the distillation flow diagrams and explain how cogeneration plants integrate reverse osmosis and distillation systems within an electric power generation plant to produce water and power.

The book can be ordered directly over the internet for US$ 24.95 at the website http://www.desalination.com from Lone Oak Publishing (USA).
