Hybrid Technology Solar Thermal Membrane Desalination of Salt Water for Populations In The Saloum River Delta
The use of brackish water in the Saloum Delta in Senegal can be made by combining the processes of desalination as a source of solar energy, usually thermal and photovoltaic processes for membrane distillation. But the demand for energy is growing; the use of solar energy can be a good solution, given the high solar potential in these areas.
Different experiences around the world have shown that the process AGMD (Air Gap Membrane Distillation) is properly adapted to renewable energy. Our work has shown that the production of fresh water by a hybrid method of desalination is possible. Then we analyzed the results on the effect of the pore size of the membrane on the mechanisms of mass transfer to estimate the production of fresh water per day generated. We also showed the effect of hot water heated by a solar panel on the phenomena of polarization membrane solution. And the final result allowed us to estimate in a dynamic system and for a small model, a daily production of about 4 L / h.
