3rd International Congress on Water Desalination:

Application of Advanced Technologies in Unconventional Water Treatment for Zones with Water Stress

Problem statement

Increase of population and demand for clean water, as well as deterioration of water resource quality and quantity, are grand challenges of the century 21st. Moreover, global climate change accentuates the already uneven distribution of freshwater, destabilizing the supply in water-stressed regions. Treatment of unconventional waters including; reclamation or reuse water and wastewaters, brackish and seawater desalination, water loss reduction, deep groundwater uptake, rainfall collection, fog collection, and virtual water would be great potentials to augment water supply in the countries facing water scarcity. For instance, the province of Sistan and Baluchestan in Iran is of the areas with supply shortage of clean water (please see the below links)


One solution to solve the problem of polluted water treatment in areas with high population dispersion and limited water resources is to use decentralized water and wastewater treatment facilities. In this regard, the advanced technologies would help to improve water and wastewater treatment efficiencies for safe use of unconventional water resources in economical way. Therefore, effective and reliable methods are needed to anchor the advanced technologies to water and energy managements with considerations to prevent potential human health and environmental risks. This task would be fulfilled thorough cost-benefit research and technology development to evaluate the applicability of these advanced technologies for water treatment.

Aims and Objectives

The main objectives of the Congress are to share the knowledge and experiences from the academia, private sector, water associations, governments, and development banks on the use of unconventional desalinated water, wastewater, rainwater, as well as the related technologies for supplying clean water to deprived zones such as Sistan and Baluchestan. Discussions on collaboration between the public-private knowledge owners and financing sectors presents opportunities in scaling up unconventional water treatment technologies for the humankind usage.
