Water Reuse Special Issue on

Innovative Strategies for Treatment and Management of Saline Water/Wastewater




The current water crisis can be overcome by prioritising proper conservation and management of naturally available fresh water in conjunction with the generation of fresh water to meet the demand of all sectors. The generated fresh water must be free from all kinds of pollutants and should be of low cost. Saline water is becoming one of the most important resources, which is available for the production of potable water through desalination. The quality of saline water influences the performance of desalination plants. The resources for saline water vary from surface (sea water, brackish) to ground (brackish and oil produced water) with variable compositions depending upon the geological factors. In addition, industrially generated saline water is another potential resource. The technologies used to desalinate the saline water are costly and also energy intensive. The energy requirement for the production of potable water depends on the quality of feed water, levels of water treatment and the technologies involved. This Special Issue mainly focuses on the current innovative strategies for treatment and management of saline water/wastewater.

We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to Water Reuse for peer review and possible publication in a Special Issue entitled Innovative Strategies for Treatment and Management of Saline Water/Wastewater.
