Desalination and Membrane Technologies: Federal Research and Adoption Issues
Nicole T. Carter (au)
In the U.S., desalination and membrane technologies are increasingly used to augment municipal water supply, to produce high quality industrial water supplies, and to reclaim contaminated supplies (including from oil and gas development). As of 2005, approx. 2,000 desalination facilities larger than 0.3 million gallons per day (MGD) were operating in the U.S., with a total capacity of 1,600 MGD which represents more than 2.4% of total U.S. municipal and industrial freshwater use. At issue for Congress is what should be the federal role in supporting desalination and membrane technology research and facilities. Desalination issues before the 113th Congress include how to focus federal research, at what level to support desalination research and projects, and how to provide a regulatory context that protects the environment and public health without disadvantaging the technology. Contents of this report: A Primer on Desalination; Federal Desalination Research; Desalination Adoption in the U.S.: Energy Concerns and Responses; Health and Environmental Concerns; Concluding Remarks. This is a print on demand report.
