Abstract

Water desalination facilities have the potential to provide for the unmet water needs of Middle Eastern and North African countries but are severely limited due to the amount of energy they require to operate. If nuclear fusion power plants could be integrated with desalination plants, the two technologies would provide for each others needs increase growth in countries in this region. Unfortunately, the technology required for nuclear fusion is still a ways off and the Middle East and North Africa cannot currently afford to invest fully in fusion cogeneration facilities.
