Salt Water becomes Fresh Water!
What is Desalination?
Desalination is the process where salty water is turned into fresh water. There is only about 0.4% of Earth's water is liquid fresh water. Scientist came up with a process that turns salt water into fresh water. They use osmosis across a membrane with tube-like pores called nano tubes. Water particles can easily pass through the little nano tubes, but salt particles and other large non-water particles cannot.
This is the process of Desalination
Thermal energy is used to evaporate the water. The sun helps to evaporate the salt from the water.
There is 13,000 plants that provide fresh water to 120 countries! A desalination plant located in San Diego, open for 29 days, produced 1.5 billion gallons of fresh water!
