DESALINATION – AN OVERVIEW
Here's the process in a more technical way.
What are the pros and cons of desalination?
-Allows for more fresh drinking water to be made available to humans.
-Desalination plants are extremely expensive to create.
-The plants will vacuum the sea water right out of the ocean therefore killing everything in it including wildlife,organisms, and lots more.
-When the salt is removed it creates a very rich substance in salt that is so strong that it can kill almost all vegetation and wildlife that comes in contact with it.
-Desalination plants also use a lot of energy to remove the salt.
How do they remove the salt?
Heat or pressure!
How much energy does it use up?
15,000 kw/h per 4 million liters.
Will this help the drought in california?
Studies show that desalination will help California
How long does it take?
Depends on the process you use.
