Facts About Water Desalination
As the price of desalinating water is falling all the time and may be equal to freshwater extraction in 2020 it is becoming more appealing to government decision makers.
What is desalination?
Desalination is the removal of salts from water to produce water with a lower salinity. Industries which require ultra pure water produced from desalination are on the rise e.g. pharmaceutical and semi-conductors.
Where is water desalination growing?

Why is water stress increasing?
NRG Expert’s water desalination market research report highlights that water stress is due to limited fresh water supplies, and in many parts of the world water usage exceeds renewable water capacity. Ground water supplies are often being over-exploited while rising temperatures and declining annual rainfall have led to increased evaporation of surface water. Increasing industrialization has also led to higher incidents of water contamination.
What are desalination technologies?
There are two principal types of water desalination technologies in current use: distillation or thermal (MSF - multi stage flash distillation or MED – multi effect desalination), including cogeneration of electricity and water; and membrane, mainly reverse osmosis (RO), followed by electrodialysis (ED).
