Nuclear desalination is an important non-electric application of nuclear power and heat, having strong interlinkages and alignment with sustainable development, climate change management (both mitigation and adaptation), and water security.
Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, Volume 117, Part A, 2023, 105617
An examination of the challenges involved in water demand forecasting, with a particular focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the performance of various machine learning models designed for this purpose.
Sustainable Chemistry and Pharmacy, Volume 25, 2022, 100590
Clean water resources are crucial for societies in order to maintain safety as well as social, ecological and economic progress. As the population grows, agricultural, domestic and industrial activities produce large amounts of wastewaters that can be treated and reused in variety of purposes considering circular economy philosophy. This review presents the challenges and future prospects of wastewater treatment using membrane technologies and is related to SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation.

In The World We Want we explore key themes related to the SDGs: leadership, innovation and youth. Dr. Márcia Balisciano, Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, interviews influencers and thought leaders across disciplines on how we can build back better to achieve the global goals.
Since 2011, the RELX Environmental Challenge has been awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation. Poor access to water and sanitation has been a growing crisis, with around 800m people worldwide lacking access to clean water and 2bn people lacking access to basic sanitation. The 2022 winners have created innovative solutions to achieve SDG 6, access to clean water and sanitation for all.
Development and economic viability analysis of photovoltaic (PV) energy powered decentralized ultrafiltration of rainwater for potable use
Journal of Water Process Engineering, Volume 50, December 2022
Ultrafiltration (UF) of rainwater with chlorination can produce water for potable purposes supporting SDG 6. Long-term tests demonstrate that the produced water meets the WHO standards. PV powered rainwater ultrafiltration cost ranges from 0.04 to 0.13 US$ m3. The developed technique can be implemented with economic viability even for small buildings. The technique can be a reliable alternative to traditional water supply approaches in remote areas across the world.
