Desalination & Water Sector Report, 2018 Edition -

The "Desalination & Water Sector Report - 1st Edition - 2018" report has been added to's offering.

Desalination is one of many technologies for water supply. In 2018 desalination accounted for 13.9% of the capex for municipal and industrial water supply and the cumulative desalination plants delivered less than 1% of the supply of water. It is the most expensive form of delivering fresh water and it can cause serious environmental damage with discharges of brine into inland seas. So, when is it viable?

Desalination is sometimes the only solution for water supply in very demanding circumstances, either of water shortage or when ultra pure water is required for industrial process.

This report positions desalination in the maze of water flows and treatment technologies for water and waste, and examines competitive technologies.
