Infographic: Energy-Efficient Desalination Could Help Provide for Those Who Lack Access to Clean Drinking Water

Comments Off on Infographic: Energy-Efficient Desalination Could Help Provide for Those Who Lack Access to Clean Drinking Water

The world is facing a serious water shortage. Humans are using more than 9 quadrillion liters of water per year (or 25 trillion liters per day), and more than one-third of people worldwide lack access to clean drinking water. For a long time, environmental groups have warned that desalination is not the answer to the shortage of freshwater because it is so energy intensive; depending too much on desalination would increase CO2 emissions while damaging marine habitats. But could new technology make desalination more sustainable? In honor of World Water Day , desalination company Energy Recovery has produced this infographic explaining how new advances in energy-efficient desalination technology could help provide clean water to those who need it most.
