The 21st century is an era of natural resource depletion. In the science and engineering community, food, energy, and water (FEW) are enduring research topics as they are vital resources for human life. Moreover, the sustainable future of human beings are threatened by climate change, global temperature increase, and sea level rise. Among the three components of FEW, water is the most critical resource because it is an essential raw resource to the food and energy production.

In the ocean-surrounded tropical Pacific Islands, it is vital to store enough water resources for short-term purposes and to have decade- and century-long plans for a stable water supply. This presentation will discuss proven, state-of-the-art desalination technologies and the appropriate applications for Hawaii.
