Kuwait scientists receive desalination patent in the US
Using a trial and error process, scientists designed a desalination unit with a 30,000 litres-per-day capacity, producing 35 percent of fresh water output with 15 percent of atmospheric pressure.

The Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) has received a patent for the construction of a desalination plant in the US, according to the state-run Kuwait News Agency.

In a statement, KISR said that affiliated scientists were able to reduce the hydraulic pressure needed for the desalination of seawater.

Using a trial and error process, scientists designed a desalination unit with a 30,000 litres-per-day capacity, producing 35 percent of fresh water output with 15 percent of atmospheric pressure.

Lab tests determined that the quality of the water meets international standards set by the World Health Organisation, KUNA added.
