Ben-Gurion U. researchers successfully test solar desalination system for arid land agriculture
Date:5/25/2012

ainable crops in arid environments. The Arava basin is extremely dry and its agricultural activities rely extensively on brackish groundwater from local aquifers.

Agricultural experiments with variable irrigation water quality, application rate and four different staple crops were conducted over two growing seasons between September 2010 and June 2011. Nanofiltration membranes allowed for less pumping of energy. The desalination plant operated at low pressure, low energy consumption and with little maintenance required during the period.

The researchers also used red beet, a salt-tolerant crop, to successfully consume the liquid wastes of the pilot facility over two growing seasons. This demonstrates that the moderately saline concentrate waste from brackish water desalination can be a useable byproduct.

"The Alliance for Global Good, generously supported by Leonard Kaplan, has been a partner of ours for a year now and is focused on innovation and research to solve global problems," explains American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Executive Vice President Doron Krakow. "The Josefowitz Oasis Project has the potential to help quench the thirst of a very parched world."
