    Novel Heat Harvesting for Low Energy Draw Solution Regeneration: Simulation Study
    Author(s): Abdukarem Amhamed and Ahmed AbotalebAbdukarem Amhamed and Ahmed Abotaleb

    In hot regions like the Middle East, the road asphalt pavement experience many fluctuations in their temperature profile that provides the large dark surface area with intensive heat absorption capacity, which warms the roads up to 75C or more in summer. This phenomenon is negatively affecting the performance and urban heating. On the other hand, the most amount of water available (about 97%) is low-quality water or seawater, which needs to be treated in an efficient way to cope with the dramatic increase on demand of clean water due to population growth and agriculture requirements. Several techniques have been used for water desalination and most are thermally based techniques. Therefore, they are consuming high energy per water desalinating volume. The aim of this study is to design a novel heat harvesting system combined with a membrane based unit, to produce clean water from imp.. Read More»
