What is it made of?
There are many different types of desalinization.
Tailor-made polyamide membranes for water desalinization: They are made of more chemically resistant materials that allow them to be cleaned more aggressively.
Victorian Desalination Plant: The plant is an integral part of Victoria's water system, supplying water via a series of existing and proposed pipelines. As a rainfall-independent source of water it complements Victoria's existing drainage basins. It produces high quality water. It is a useful resource in times of drought.
Who and where was it invented?
How does it work?
What is it's impact on society?
It has allowed countries to get fresh water for Homs and towns without a local source of a fresh water river or stream. This purifies water and makes it useable for any use.
How has it impacted the way people use their resources?
How has it impacted the way people interact with others?
Many countries have significantly cut their water use by investing in efforts to improve the efficiency of use and reduce waste of water. The United States, for example, uses less water today for all purposes than it did in1980. This brings countries with different economies to collaborate on how these problems can be solved.
How has it impacted where people are able to live?
What is the impact of your innovation on globalization?
