Scientific meeting on desalination and waste water treatment – UDES/CDER – SIMEV

To promote desalination technologies and waste water treatment using membrane techniques with renewable energies, The Solar Equipment Development Unit (UDES) affiliated to the Renewable Energies Development Center (CDER), under supervision of the General Directorate of Scientific Research and Technological Development (DGRSDT/MESRS) will organize an important scientific event on desalination and waste water treatment the 27th January 2015 at the UDES/CDER Bou Ismail – Wilaya of Tipaza.

This meeting, which will be an opportunity to experience and know-how exchange, will see the participation of Mr. Gilbert M. Rios, Professor and Director of the Chaire UNESCO SIMEV – Membrane Sciences Applied to Environment, Mr. Pierre Magnes, Director of the Firmus France Company, technical officers of the desalination center of Fouka – Mayah Tipaza (Bou Smail) thus CDER researchers.

To face the continous growth of population and to satisfy their vital needs, some economic areas considered as prioritary, must absolutely follow this growth as the agriculture, the industry. However, the agriculture in itselef, consume over 80 % of available water coming from either dams or groundwater. This huge amount of water provided for agriculture will certainly lead to a lack in drinking water for the population.

Aware of that issue and to exploit existant resources with 1200 Km of coast, Algeria turned, during the last decades, toward desalination of sea water technology through achieving many factories in some coastal regions where there is an important population.
