This paper provides a National perspective on Desalination Technology. The reports states that Desalination technology is being used to meet water supply demands in over 140 countries around the world, and international support for desalination research appears to be growing. Concentrate management remains an issue and can be a constraint. Brackish desal has tremendous national potential but is impeded by disposal issues; costs, and permitting.
