About the publication
This report is a summary of a more detailed report - Economic and Technical Assessment of Desalination Technologies in Australia.
These reports represent the long and short of available desalination technologies and their potential to provide a cost-effective salinity and water quality management tool, particularly in the National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality (NAP) regions.
The reports also present a 'desalination decision tree' to help communities, particularly in the NAP regions, determine whether desalination is an appropriate tool and which technologies could be best applied to the salinity problems they face.
