Today, the H2020 DESOLINATION project is holding its 3rd progress meeting in Paris. What a pleasure for the 21 project partners from Europe and the Gulf Cooperation Region to be together again!

The whole team is delighted to be back at work after a few months’ interruption to develop an innovative process combining concentrated solar power (CSP) on the one hand, and direct osmosis (FO) desalination on the other, to efficiently produce green electricity and fresh water.

H2020 DESOLINATION started in 2021 and seeks to build a first-of-a-kind plant producing fresh water out of solar energy. The demonstrator will be sent to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for testing in 2024.

Many thanks to all the partners for these valuable exchanges, which help move the project forward!
