Mateo Roldan-Carvajal, Researcher at Universidad Nacional de Colombia and CEMarin, will present results of their recent study on the evaluation and environmental feasibility of seawater desalination (DES) using salinity gradient energy (SGE) in coastal areas. The report is a result of the call "Innovative solutions to solve water scarcity" issued by the SDGnexus Network and was prepared by CEMarin, the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, the Universidad del Norte and coralina.


The study reveals interlinkages between SDG 6, the DES-SGE schemes, and other SDGs. Mostly synergies were found, however, a critical trade-off between the DES-SGE systems, SDG-6 and SDG-14 was described related to the brine production in desalination systems.
