Seawater Desalination should be one of the biggest industries in our world today, as it allows people to get water in parts of the world that are lacking in freshwater but are relatively near saltwater. It also is a way for us to deal with rising sea levels, which are most likely going to increase with global warming. As flooding looms, keep taking the water out of the ocean, even if it means storing it in man-made reservoirs until ready to desalinate it. Seawater Desalination defined.

Read more about the necessity to help grow this industry at Managing Earth’s Blog Seawater Desalination for the World. We’ll keep growing our list of resources pertaining to this vital industry in hopes that the world will get properly and more evenly hydrated while helping to reduce rising sea levels. If you know of great projects, technology, or companies that focus on desalination and would like to share the details on this page, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share the details. The Managing Earth FB page also shares stories on any developments in the desalination industry. Visit our Pinterest page on Water Desalination to see great examples of this important technology.
