Event – Free talk on “Using Solar Energy for Water Desalination”

Posted in Research, Visions by Ferne Edwards on August 29th, 2007

Aliakbar Akbarzadeh will talk about “Using Solar Energy for Water Desalination”, Thursday 30 August.
Cutting trees as well as improper water irrigation has resulted in the rise of the salty underground water tables in many parts of Northern Victoria. As a result several thousand hectares of land has been contaminated with salt. Based on his research, Professor Akbarzadeh will present and discuss renewable energy systems that he and his research team at RMIT have developed as part of the Salinity Mitigation Schemes. These systems, called “solar ponds,” can produce thermal energy which can be used a source of renewable energy for local salt industries.

Professor Aliakbar Akbarzadeh is the Leader of Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Group in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at RMIT University.
