This study will cover the main principle design of the prototype plant to produce MgO with concentration of 95% and a capacity of 5.0 Ton/day using both sea water and calcined dolomite, including proposed technical description of main equipment’s. The most convent way to produce Mgo from Arabian Gulf water is used both Gulf sea water with dolomite which is considered the most cheaply, The rezone’s are:- • Availability of dolomite with huge quantities and high purity, especially in Muthana governess in South of Iraq. • Easy to process. • Sea water considered a big natural resource for Mg with concentration of about 2-3 gm/l • Mg concentration in Gulf Sea water about 2-3 gm/l. Results and conclusions:- • We have to Change sodium bicarbonate soluble in Gulf sea water to calcium carbonates. • To produce 1.0 Ton of MgO from Seawater we need about 250.0 m3 of Sea water. • Pure, clear water required to be mixed with Dolomite is calculated to be 131.52 Kg/hr. • Estimated annual quantities of material’s used in this prototype (to produce 5.0 Ton/day MgO) are • Gulf Sea water = 376,000 m3 / year, calcined dolomite = 2,175 Ton / year, water with low salinity concentration (TDS<500) = 39,000 m3 / year.
