Solar Energy for Thermal Desalination Technologies in Saudi Arabia Prospects of Utilization of Solar Energy for Thermal Desalination Technologies in Saudi Arabia Abstract [Best combined with the abstract in the original dissertation] Fossil Fuels are depleting fast all over the world.
Shortage of water and depleting sources of fossil fuel has prompted scientist and engineers to search for new technologies that are sustainable and eco-friendly. The paper describes about the current scenario about water resources in Saudi Arabia and how existing demand supply gaps can be filled with the use of thermal desalination technology in the years to come. The table earlier presented Introduction Saudi Arabia is a country of paradoxes, not only in its history and culture but even in its natural resources. In its substrata lies the 18 per cent of all the world’s proven oil reserves, the largest anywhere in the world (Revenue Watch Institute, 2011), and because of this the country is assured of a steady stream of petrodollars that has the potential to make it one of the world’s wealthiest economies. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia is situated in one of the world’s most arid regions, with little surface water, very little rainfall, and increasing desertification which is gradual loss of once arable and fertile land to encroaching aridity (TeachMideast, 2011). Thus while it is abundant in the world’s most expensive natural resource, Saudi Arabia is however sorely lacking in that commodity essential to life and plentiful in nearly every other region of the planet – fresh water. ...
