  • Energy consumption and energy recovery;
  • Environmental issues related to desalination;
  • Hybrid desalination processes;
  • Membrane desalination processes;
  • New membrane/material and the impact on desalination performance;
  • Performance aspects, for example causes, consequences and countermeasures of fouling and scaling;
  • Recovery of resources from brines;
  • Related systems to desalination such as pre-treatment, post-treatment, integrated plants and brine disposal;
  • Renewable energy applications in desalination;
  • Thermal desalination processes;
  • Transport and process modelling in desalination;
