Overview of our Solar Desalination System

Research and Development

UNSW Energy Systems, headed by Prof John Fletcher, is currently working with Mincarb to develop novel bi-directional energy systems for the recovery of energy from charged CDI modules. This has the potential to transform CDI and open up solar desalination as a mainstream technology. This is a core area of research that overlaps the suite of applications and products being developed by Mincarb. In 2016 Mincarb/UNSW will install a demonstration facility at the Fowler's Gap pastoral research station near Broken Hill, NSW to showcase the first large scale (>200A) bi-directional energy recovery system for CDI.
