MEDRC: Scaling control in seawater reverse osmosis

Research project to decrease the operational cost of Sea Water RO plants by eliminating/decreasing chemicals used to prevent scaling of calcium carbonate. Safe recovery limits will be determined with and without chemical addition, and the results verified with pilot plant research in the Middle East Desalination Research Centre (MEDRC), Oman.
