Dying of Thirst

If it isn't going to rain, we need to get new water sources. After researching how other countries source water through desalination, and being aware that Portland Aluminium produces a massive amount of byproduct heat, I had a lightbulb moment.

Low-temperature thermal multi-effect distillation desalination
+ Portland Aluminium waste heat
+ Portland geothermal resources
= low production cost fresh water for Victoria.
I've been developing an evidence-based concept paper, linking Australia's desperate need for NEW water with proven desalination technologies and Portland as an idea location to establish a desalination plant.

Once I work out how to upload the concept paper I'll provide a link in the sidebar.
