Medad Builds World's First Solar Adsorption Desalination Plant.
Situated in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the AD desalination plant will have a maximum capacity of 700m3/day (Distilled water) when hybridized with a MED plant. The feed water to the plant is RO Reject (Brine) from a nearby RO plant. It utilizes low grade waste heat (85C hot water) from thermal Solar panels. An extension AD-crystallizer is currently under construction next to the AD plant to further treat the AD Reject to ZLD. This extension is expected to complete in Q2 2017.
