Desalination Plant Desalination Plants are set up to remove salt from seawater through a manipulated, energy expensive process. Such saline water desalting is needed in arid or desert regions, and wherever there is a dearth of fresh water, in order to make water potable for human consumption and suitable for irrigation. Desalination is actually a more expensive option than other alternatives for reclaiming fresh water - like groundwater extraction or rainwater harvesting. But, it's the only way out when where other options are not available. Currently, about 1% of the world's population is dependent on desalinated water for their daily needs - but it may rise to 14% in future. read more
