Seawater Desalination should be one of the biggest industries in our world today, as it allows people to get water in parts of the world that are lacking in freshwater but are relatively near saltwater. It also is a way for us to deal with rising sea levels, which are most likely going to increase with global warming. As flooding looms, keep taking the water out of the ocean, even if it means storing it in man-made reservoirs until ready to desalinate it. Seawater Desalination defined. Geothermal Desalination defined.
We’ll keep growing our list of resources pertaining to this vital industry in hopes that the world will get properly and more evenly hydrated while helping to reduce rising sea levels. If you know of great projects, technology, or companies that focus on desalination and would like to share the details on this page, email us and we will try and share the details. For developments in the desalination industry, visit our Pinterest Page on Water Desalination which cites many great examples of this important technology.
