MEDINA Membrane-based desalination: An integrated approach

Country: European Union
Start Date:   1/12/2006         Duration: 36 months         Project Type: RTD
Contract Number: 036997
Organisation Type:  EC Project
Water and sanitation-->Water supply
Project objectives:
The FP6 project MEDINA started by the end of 2006 and aims to tackle   
current reverse osmosis (RO) drawbacks in view to develop innovative   
solutions for the major engineering components. The 
Project Summary:
focus of the research   
activities is on raw water characterisation, pre-filtration options, RO   
module settings, fouling, scaling and post-treatment and recovery of   
valuables concentrates. The activities also include environmental and life   
cycle assessments with the overall objective of developing an   
membrane-based integrated process. 
Achieved Objectives:
•Report  of critical analysis on the desalination technology    
• Pre-treatment in Sea Water Reverse Osmosis system     
• Environmental Impacts Assessment checklist     
•A  report on the current advantages and drawbacks of Membrane   
Bioreactor as a  pre-treatment step in the sea water and Brackish   
water desalination      
•Report  on raising public participation and awareness
