Qeeri develops cost efficient desalination technology

The multi effect distillation pilot plant is now operational in Dukhan

The Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute or Qeeri, part of the Hamad Bin Khalifa University or HBKU, has developed a sea water desalination pilot plant which is showing higher efficiency than conventional technology. Requiring just 4.5 kilowatt hours per cubic metre to desalinate the high concentration sea water of the Dukhan coast. As opposed to conventional technology which can require up to 12 kilowatt hours per cubic metre.

The Eid Al Fitr Holidays for ministries, other government entities, and public institutions will start this coming Sunday. And will resume work on Wednesday May the 19th says the Amiri Diwan.
