Abstract
Block and falling film freeze concentration are two technologies that separate water by freezing,with the potential to desalinate seawater. In this study, the integration of two freeze concentration techniques as an alternative to obtain potable water was analysed. Water with 0.5%–8% NaCl was freeze-concentrated by the falling film technique. The ice from each stage was fractionally thawed to recover the solids retained in
