Are we the Clever Country?: Water Race

Water Race

Today's Herald Sun headline: WATER RACE. Ashley Gardiner and Ellen Whinnett report that a French company (linked with Connex) has declared an interest in building either a desalination or recycling plant in Victoria. This company is already building a reverse osmosis desalination plant in Queensland. Apparently Multiplex and John Holland (local construction companies) are also interested.

Because of the high energy levels required for reverse osmosis desalination; I would encourage any company in the race to produce water for Victoria to consider developing a thermal distillation plant using recycled heat from any high-energy, high-heat-producing industrial process (like Portland Aluminium).
