If you think seawater is undrinkable – think again! Cutting-edge water solutions are helping turn seawater into drinking water to help solve this global crisis. In fact, seawater desalination is one of the most important methods of producing reliable water supplies near population centers in the driest parts of the world. Desalination plants are built to provide greater water security and reduce consumption of non-renewable freshwater.
But the process typically involves a high energy-consuming process making electricity one of the biggest running costs in desalination. Solving high-energy consumption needs using systems that improve energy efficiency and productivity in water processes has become a necessity.
«…Depending on the type of desalination process, energy consumption is between 20 and 60 percent of total production cost.…»
