Abstract
Drinking water suppliers such as natural sources are limited. So, using wastewater treatment techniques and also sea water desalination methods have been explored for many years. This experimental work considers ZnO nano plate in solar pond providing drinking water using solar power as a renewable energy instead of fossil fuel as a nonrenewable energy. Industrial wastewater from petrochemical plant is treated using solar pond technique. Evaporation rate, ambient temperature, brackish water temperature and produced water are reported in a year. According to the experiments, the highest rate of evaporation is on July, 5.2 (lit/m2. day), the highest value of ambient temperature is 34 C on July and the highest amount of insolation rate 24500 (kj/m2.day), is obtained on June and August. Results show an evaluation of solar pond technique in wastewater treatment.
