What is Desalination?


the process of removing salt from seawater.

Desalination is a process that removes salt and other impurities from seawater, making water suitable for human consumption or for use in various industrial processes. The primary goal of desalination is to produce fresh water from salty water sources, such as the sea or brackish water, to address water scarcity issues.

This essential technology takes place in regions where traditional freshwater sources are scarce, in places such as Las Vegas and the United Arab Emirates, and it has become increasingly popular to meet growing water demands. However, due to more people becoming aware of this technology, along comes misconceptions about just how effective it is. You can read 4 of the most common misconceptions about desalination here.

Desalination typically uses reverse osmosis as an effective method to produce high quality pure water. This is where seawater is forced through a membrane at high pressure, preventing any dissolved solids to pass but allowing water molecules through.
