Here I am back again in our marvelous Real Environment Laboratory (RE) in Trapani, Sicily.  As part of the SEArcularMINE H2020 research and innovation project we are performing evaporation experiments on the roof using real desalination brines.  We are investigating the mineral extraction of traditional saltworks with an alternative feed of concentrated seawater brines produced after seawater desalination processes.  This line of investigation has the exciting potential to close a loop with the desalination industry and create a sustainable, environmentally optimised circular process.

A lot of sun still in September … flamingos… and so so windy…

Grazie and Ciao!
