The Center for Inland Desalination Systems (CIDS) builds on a strong foundation of related research already being done by faculty members in geological sciences, chemistry, and civil engineering at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). CIDS researchers are primarily focused on inland desalination issues such as researching and developing high recovery desalination processes and recovering useful products from desalination waste streams.


The vision of CIDS is to become a premier research group recognized internationally for excellence in inland desalination education, research, and service and technology commercialization.


CIDS staff and faculty will advance the science and technology of desalination and innovative water treatment through the integration of students in research projects for publications, patents, and theses/dissertations; supporting local, regional, state, federal, and international agencies; and contributing towards UTEP's recognition as a national research university with a 21st century demographic.
