Two main process-

  • multistage flash desalination- is a water desalination process that distills sea water by changing a portion of the water into steam in multiple stages of heat exchangers. Multi-stage flash distillation plants produce 85% of all desalinated water in the world.
  • Reverse Osmosis- is the passage or diffusion of water or other solvents through a semipermeable membrane that blocks the passage of dissolved solutes nearly 15% of desalinated sea water comes from a reverse osmosis plant

Desalinization Solving Problems
  • Desalinization is a popular solution for water problems in North Africa and in the Middle East.
  • It provides fresh water to many areas where there is a growing thirst or did not have much fresh water in the first place.
  • A desalinization plant can produce roughly 98 million gallons of water a year.
  • Is a major help to countries like Israel who are struggling to find new water sources.
pros and cons of desalinization
Pros and Cons of Desalinization



Desalination is an energy-hungry process

Desalination plants can often be expensive to build

  • If properly designed, desalination plants that use RO can consistently deliver high-quality water to consumers.
  • Even more importantly, the quantity of water stored in the ocean is so vast it's virtually inexhaustible, so desalination is a completely drought-proof source of water.
