Get the Salt Out

There is no shortage of water on the blue planet, just a shortage of fresh waters.
97,5% of the water on Earth is salty
2,5% of the Earth water is fresh.
THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE now get their water from the sea or from brackish groundwater that is too salty to drink . That’s double the number a decade ago. Desalination took off in the 1970s in the Middle East and has since spread to 150 countries. Desalinisation is not a cheap way to get water, but sometimes that’s the only way there is. And it’s much cheaper than it was two decades ago. 16 billions gallons are produced daily by the world 14 450 desalinisation plants. Nearly 70% of the world’s fresh water is locked in Ice.
