Trends in Global Research in Water Desalination & Decontanimation

Water research in the United States is funded by a variety of federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the National Institute for Environmental and Health Sciences (NIEHS); the National Science Foundation (NSF), predominantly through its CBET (Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport) Division; the Department of Energy (DOE), through individual investigator grants; and the Department of Interior (DOI), primarily through Title XVI (“The Water Reclamation and Reuse Act”) and through the Water Desalination Act of 1996. A variety of private companies, either working in collaboration with a university or independently, also work in this area.


This study presents a detailed review of developments in research worldwide, but particularly in the USA, Canada, Israel, Europe, Australia, Japan and China, in academic, government and corporate research on water desalination and decontamination. The study profiles efforts at more than 75 of the world’s leading universities, including but not limited to MIT, UCLA, Northwestern, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Sydney, McGill University, the University of Toronto, Fudan University, Tsinghua University, Technishe Universitat Berlin, Ecole Polytechnique, Indian Institute of Sciences, Ben Gurion University, Universita’ di Bologna, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Seoul University, Cardiff University, the University of Bath and King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals – among many, many others.
