The percentage of fresh water in the world is just 3% – and not to forget that it’s unevenly distributed. 97% of the water on Earth is seawater (saltwater) and is not fit for human consumption. The average salt content in seawater is 3.5%, making it unfit for drinking, cooking, and other day-to-day activities. Not just regular activities, but seawater is also not suitable for irrigation and industrial needs.
Increasing population, accelerating agriculture and industrial needs make it essential for us to convert seawater into potable water. With nearly 40% of the world’s population living within a radius of 60 miles from coasts, desalination – the practice of converting seawater into potable water – has gained tremendous traction in recent years.
Access to clean drinking water is a fundamental human right. With accelerating climate change and other socio-economic factors, desalination is quickly growing as the popular choice for drinking water. However, one of the biggest challenges facing the desalination industry is – high costs. The desalination industry is highly dependent on water pumps.
