Desalination specialists at OzWater 2005
Desalination specialists Aqua Dyne will be on Booth d188 at the Australian Water
Association’s OzWater 2005 Exhibition to be held at the Brisbane Convention and
Exhibition Centre from 8-12 May 2005.
Aqua Dyne believes it has an important role to play in Australia’s water
industry, particularly in the area of water reuse and the OzWater stand will
provide visitors with an opportunity to talk with the Aqua Dyne team as well as
view a range of material which will visualise the unique thermal desalination
Aqua Dyne’s Australian developed JetWater System can recover high purity
distilled water from a range “wastewater” sources including:
- Mineral processing
- Power generation
- Food manufacture
- Municipal landfill leachate
- Other water desalination processes eg. Reverse Osmosis
Aqua Dyne has been operating a pilot plant at Stapylton (between Brisbane and
the Gold Coast), but this facility will be transferred to the CSIRO’s Queensland
Centre for Advanced Technology in the Brisbane suburb of Pinjarra Hills later
this year to undertake research into the use of solar energy for water
The CSIRO Division of Exploration and Mining will be responsible for the
research activities with Commonwealth funding to be applied for on a
The use of solar energy for water desalination has enormous potential for remote
mining areas and more widely for remote townships in coastal and inland
Australia and throughout the world.
CSIRO Research Scientist Mr Pat Glynn said that combining known solar technology
to the Aqua Dyne thermal MVC desalination technology has very wide potential as
it overcomes the greenhouse gas issue which occurs as a result of the use of
electricity or diesel power for desalination.
“The solar collectors will also produce surplus steam with the potential to run
a generator capable of an output of sufficient electricity that could be used in
the mine, or township, or sold to the grid,” Mr Glynn said.
