California has long been in a state of emergency thanks to its extensive drought, and it’s not alone. Droughts happen across the globe, though they don’t always last quite as long as they one in California. What might not make sense to many people, though, is how a coastal location could even begin to suffer a drought with so much water surrounding it. Because 97% of the water on the planet, though, is salt water, and thus unusable, droughts are more common than many would like to admit. Enter desalination – technology that can filter the salt water and make it usable for all kinds of needs on Earth.
The Increasing Role of Desalination
It has been predicted that desalination is going to become much more important in the next several years because many of the major freshwater aquifers are fast depleting of the resources people need to survive. To ensure people have enough water, desalination plants will likely become more important than ever.
We offer a number of technologies to help fuel the future of desalination plants around the globe. From options that help with pH adjustment to those that ensure large pipeline mixing is more possible than ever, we’re working to build out the possibilities for desalination.
Interested in using this technology for your own application? Contact us today to learn more about what we’ve done in places around the globe to make desalination more possible than ever.
The need for desalination will certainly increase in the future, and Komax will be there to help with the best technologies available.
