Salts Production from Dead Sea by using Different Technological Methods: Prospective Outlook

Adnan M. Al-Harahsheh and Hossam I. Al-Itawi

Abstract:
This study presents alternative methods for the utilizing of Dead Sea resources. These include crystallization through cooling by passing the Dead Sea water across cooled surfaces, or by direct contact between a cooling agent and the water solution. The cooling process of the Dead Sea water leads to the saturation state, after which precipitation of the main salts occurs. However, more work is required to study the effect of freezing on the crystallization process and to obtain the equilibrium data for the Dead Sea solution under cooling conditions. Another alternative method for crystallization of the Dead Sea salts is the adiabatic vacuum crystallization, which depends on the evaporation of water at low temperature as a result of the presence of vacuum. Here the rate of decreasing the Dead Sea level due to evaporation in solar evaporation ponds can be reduced to a minimum by condensing the obtained vapor and recycling it back to the Dead Sea or reuse it for the industrial processes.
