DailyDirt: Separating Salt From Seawater…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There’s plenty of water on our planet, but unfortunately for us, not all of that water is drinkable or easily obtained. A whole ocean of water is even locked away underground trapped in minerals that we hopefully won’t need to tap into for fresh water. However, drought conditions could get worse, so we might have to explore more exotic ways of getting potable water. Here are just a few desalination technologies that might become useful soon.

Moving Water

Some thing to keep in mind, a lot of the energy burned up in getting fresh water is simply getting it from sea level to hundreds of metres above sea level and tens of thousands of metres from the sea where it can be used.
So not just getting the salt out.
Moving water around is easy when you get gravity to do the work.
