Desal Short School (Trevor Pillar & Tom Pankratz)Desal-groupThe controversial issue of desalination came under the microscope at a special workshop organised by ICE WaRM and the National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia (NCEDA) in Adelaide.

Twenty six delegates took part in the second GWI Desalination Short School – the first collaboration between the two Centres of Excellence – which featured presenter Tom Pankratz and was supported by SA Water.

The technical course attracted a wide range of professionals from research, water and desalination backgrounds and covered desalination plant feasibility, pilot studies, commissioning, testing and post-completion issues with examples from the Middle East, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

Further courses on desalination are in the pipeline.
