Title: DESALINATION SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DESALINATING SALTWATER
Abstract:
A desalination system and method of operating the system to desalinate saltwater is disclosed. The desalination system includes a electrochemical desalination subsystem and a primary desalination subsystem, such as a thermal or reverse osmosis desalination system. The low multivalent ion concentration partially desalinated water from the electrochemical desalination subsystem is blended with low ion concentration desalinated water from the primary desalination subsystem to produce a blended desalted water that meets required specifications for release into the environment.
