An Introduction to Post-Treatment and Waste Disposal for Water Desalination

COURSE NO: H02-005
An Introduction to Post-Treatment and Waste Disposal for Water Desalination
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the technologies of water desalination post-treatment and waste disposal. It will introduce you to remineralization and aeration processes, corrosion control, disinfection, suspended solids removal, brine evaporation, deep-well injection of wastes, and waste gas handling.


Water desalination systems may employ different technologies depending on a variety of technical and economic factors.  To one degree or another, these technologies produce water that requires post-treatment to produce potable water that is healthy and has a pleasant taste.  They also produce to varying degrees waste streams that must be properly disposed of.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers, civil engineers, electrical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to post-treatment and waste disposal for water desalination plants. After completion of this course you will be prepared for advanced learning about water desalination to prepare you for desalination project planning and design.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding water desalination technologies and post-treatment of product water
