An experimental scale desalination pond which utilizes solar energy as a heat source is studied in this paper. The marked solar desalination pond is considered as one of the main stages in a proposed zero discharge desalination process. The effluent waste water of the desalination unit of the petrochemical complex is treated in the proposed zero discharge desalination process to produce potable water and salt. Evaporation distillation method is used in the studied solar desalination pond. Basically, this solar desalination pond is working as batch stage. At the first, the solar-powered desalination pond is introduced then the used method for distillation is discussed and the experimental results are represented in this paper, finally. The results show the feasibility of using the proposed solar-powered pond. The rate of gained distilled water by the proposed solar powered pond is compared with conventional solar pond, finally.
