News International Desalination Database: MEDRC works with MWH Americas to develop International Database

AWWW (American Water Works Association) Research Foundation (AwwaRF) in cooperation with the California Energy Commission has selected MWH Americas to identify and document international desalination related research and development (R&D) efforts and compile them in an user-friendly, readily searchable database.

The global desalination comunity is widely dispersed and informally organised around numerous specific desciplines. MWH has assembled a team of internationally recognized researchers from the USA, Asia, Australia, Europe and Middle East, who will reach out to the desalination community to collect meaningful data from each region and discipline to develop a database that consolidates R&D efforts undertaken since the publication of DESALNET (AWWA 2002).

MWH will utilize a web-based database system, that will allow for updating the information as needed and alow users to access information without the need to download or obtain new software.

MEDRC (Middle East Desalination Research Center) will assist significantly in capturing leading desalination efforts being performed in the Middle East, which is a major region for usage of desalination technology.

MWH began the project in January 2007 and the database is scheduled for completion in late 2008. Any individual, organisation or private company that would to have their research included in the database should contact Celine Trussell at: 858-751-1205 or via email.

Additionally, entities interested in submitting information for this project may go to the website.
