    • Freeze desalination by the integration of falling film and block freeze concentration techniques 

      Zambrano, A.; Ruiz Pardo, Ruth Yolanda; Hernández Yáñez, Eduard; Raventós Santamaria, Mercè; Moreno, F. L. (2018-06-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Block and falling film freeze concentration are two technologies that separate water by freezing,with the potential to desalinate seawater. In this study, the integration of two freeze concentration techniques as an ...
    • Multi-plate freeze concentration: Recovery of solutes occluded in the ice and determination of thawing time
