Can Sea Water Desalination Save The World?

  • Gepubliceerd op Jaar geleden

    CNBC

    Today, one out of three people don’t have access to safe drinking water. And that’s the result of many things, but one of them is that 96.5% of that water is found in our oceans. It’s saturated with salt, and undrinkable. Most of the freshwater is locked away in glaciers or deep underground. Less than one percent of it is available to us. So why can’t we just take all that seawater, filter out the salt, and have a nearly unlimited supply of clean, drinkable water?

The amount of REAL desalination needed is so huge, that nobody yet seems to realize it yet. Because there also is a need to refill the basins that have been almost emptied during these last 100 years. But with this said, there's hope: this is of course something that in the first step is tried to be solved in really big scale because of the immediate needs from the cities. However, the long-term solution points towards many small units, and the reason is the generation of power. A small, off-grid unit for desalination would ideally mean a unit with a small wind turbine and photoelectric cells, or mirrors. There is no need for it to work 24/7, as long as it produces efficient enough. It would be another solution to have a unit a little bit away from the beach which pumped salt water with the power of the waves or streams, ideally passing some turbines on the way and creating electricity, which in the end is used for the process of desalination. Such units should be able to work without to much maintainance for quite a long time, and could simply do the job of slowly refilling the basins. Considering the very salt rest product, the reasonable solution is to mix it with sea water until it isn't saltier than the ocean can take. But it will take quite some amounts of water to do all this, and that's exactly why you have to incorporate the production of electricity in the process. This will be a very energy-demanding process. But on the other hand is this now possible to do. Only the last two-three years, the number of small, simple but rather effective turbines became impressive. The photoelectric panels are effective, but will be far more so within a few years as it seems. So, where is the catch? The catch is that fresh and safe water is seen as a human right. People haven't learned to live with a real cost for water, they just pay for the service to get it. There will be a rather heavy price, since the customers have to pay for grave mistakes made by earlier generations. Another thing that must be addressed immediately is to create a general ban on open soil agriculture in dry areas. Dispensations must be allowed to some degree, but it can't be allowed to freely let water evaporate that way. With the true cost for water being paid, of course it will make sense to use drip irrigation, greenhouses, aquaponics and tunnels, but also to use other crops. Permacultures and food forests are the only sustainable solutions in hot and dry climates without creating problems. It's a myth that animals are a problem. If holistic management is used properly, they rather are part of the solution because they increase the biological activity in the soil and are beneficial for the growth of grass. But again, it takes to do it right. Good gracing does the opposite of bad gracing because it creates a situation which both binds carbon and water at the same time as the soil gets shadow, nutrition and the incentives for the grass to set its roots as deeply as possible. Plowing must be used only when it is absolutely necessary, and never annually. Open fields must be limited in size and enough trees allowed to grow between them to uphold the ability to store water under the surface. If you Americans start now, you'll be able to solve this in time. But you can't wait. And it is rather horrifying to realize that where I live in the North of Sweden, where we have all the water we need, absolutely perfect conditions for especially production of meat, we have far too few farms and lots of productive soul that isn't used anymore. Why? Because it grows more and faster in hot climates, and especially if you go monocultural. As long as you use the resources unsustainably, there is no way to compete. Only when the real price is paid, will a functional balance come to exist and truly good use of the soil will be realized. And of course, we have openings in the huge woods where we grow crops and grass, not the other way around. However, if we would do things the same way, I wonder what would happen. Humans can't set themselves above nature without creating severe problems, we have to mimic nature and let things work according to the true conditions that are given. If we beat nature, we will be on the losing side. We have to do things the way nature intended and try to do it as cleverly as we ever can.

Wouldn't we be able to pump water into the desert where the water would evaporate and form clouds and come back as rain? What if we would store excess water from the northpole in the atlantic ocean in giant man made damms or manmade lake in valleys in the saharah desert!? wouldn't that be something? wouldn't those manmade lakes form clouds?

7:01 I live in Nevada, and we have plenty of desert where not many animals/plants live in. California also has Death Valley where not many organisms live in, either. Desalinization plants should just transport the brine to a Nevada desert or to Death Valley, and let it evaporate. The salt could be used for industry, but the deserts could hold the brine indefinitely.

Why desalination plants are NOT also power plants is mystery.

@Hunter McClovio Hey Hunter the greater so cal area has been trying to store water all over the place we actually still have reservoirs In your area there is one in rosemead it think others others in the san gabrial valley have been closed and made into golf courses and housing because of the real estate prices i Personally i don't like orange county because there is only complaints and not real solutions or even the interest in solutions. To store water you need somplace to put so i think get bulldosers and build a seawall across the county and store water therethe LA would have a place to put water. Dont like that try fixing the dams that are the there is a huge one in the San Gabriel river canyon that is full of silt I think it might have held quite bit of water most of these reservoirs were built during the new deal period. But cities didn't maintain them the los angeles area has dam failures all over from bad engineers building poorly designed medium size dams that failed cus this is earthquake country and the dams were built by engineers trained where there were no earthquakes. The first dam failure i learned about was near my hometown of culver city in about 1963 In the baldwin hills only 5 people were killed. it was pretty spooky but most of the water was trapped at the La Ballona creek flood control kinda of a mini LA or santa ana river thing Anyway many reservoirs were built in almost every major canyon in california by the new deal look at some maps for example big bear lake lake arrowhead lake pyramid castaic lake grant lake lake isabella that san gabriel dam should have the dirt taken out and reused I'm sure there are a hundred more in california not including the big ones like shasta lake powell lake mead and ill bet even more south of where you are. As far as the water going straight to the ocean look at old film clips here on you tube you willlearn about why those concrete channels are there when i was a kid when we had big storms for three days the low lying areas would be under 4 ft of water because developers built on the dry flood plains that only got water every 5 years or more they were supposed to before citrus only, But its socal, so money won. So cal needs many solutions to the water situation and PLanning and forsight and desalinization is not one of them at this time. Maybe in the future but not now. My belief is that the present time doing what was done in the past is still works We need to build a shunt to the columbia river and either catch some of that water or build the aquaducts to the grand coullee and join them to cals system at mt Shasta. also there is more water farther north in the drainage of the Olympic national rain forest vancouver bay area. which also has a lot of available water. the other thing we should be doing is building a tunneling machine and putting a tunnel under the rockies and bringing either Upper Mississippi pr great lakes water to the west and to the midwest for irrigation there and to recharge the Ogallala aquafir now thats a real water program that sounds grandiose but is technology already in use all over the western states. not super expensive water desalinisers. for mall towns. remember the water shortage is mostly because of commercial farm irrigation use not the cities. We just pay for the farmers water. When it rains the water in the santa ana river is already lost unless we make huntington into a dam like i said. at hightide it almost already is just thats the salt water.

@SurferNorm I work all along the santa ana river in orange county. snow melts in the mountains and rain flows from the mountains non stop all the way to the ocean. waste if you ask me. all these years and they haven't come up with a system to retain all/some of that water?? as water becomes more scarce the problem in california will just get worse. population is growing very fast in the inland empire.

Actually they try to catch what water they can but during a heavy rain there is no place to store that much local water. Most flood control channels have baffles that can catch low flow and let it enter the water table but you can't catch that much water at sea level. In the future we will mix it with upsidaizium and float it back to lake powell and lake mead but that is tricky with current technolgy. By the way storing rainwater they way you discribe was illegal in many areas because it was competition for the local water providers. many places in the east is still so but they may not be enforcing those laws currently. I live in LA but I have no rain gutters on my house. However i doubt if i get enough rain annually to fill 2 blu barrels you are describing. also they would need covers or something to stop mosquitos. Vector control is a big deal around here.

Seems to be a complete misunderstanding about the Water Cycle in the comments. Water evaporates, rains back down, evaporates again. Sucking it out of the ocean won't make the sea level go down. When used on the lawn, washing a car, your hands, or in food - water eventually makes its way _back_ into the Water Cycle, even if that water is no longer fit for immediate consumption (often). Humans & other animals sweat, urinate, and eventually die releasing the last of our water into the environment. Water just doesn't "disappear" never to be seen again. Now, it does get polluted by humans in the process of manufacturing & we need to be more conservative because _processing_ more water for consumption does use resources and may produce waste so toxic that it harms other species. As in this video, too much saline could harm the creatures where it goes back to. I think our problem is one of ACCESS to Drinking or Clean water across areas that were once less inhabited. Again, water doesn't disappear, it's just in different forms of use unfit for human use (underground, ice, wastewater, inside people/animals/plants, the ocean).

No, As the seawater decreases as it is being used the level will drop, then the glaciers will melt faster, and as that happens there will disastrous climate changes. I feel This is not the solution. The seawater dissolution into producing drinkable water will only lead to more draining of the oceans for such projects such as mining the oceans for its gold resource, and so, and so on. until the oceans become industrialized. There are better solutions to this problem that has not been brought forward yet.

Naval ships use a desalination process to create fresh water they don't water when they go to port. Not sure about commercial ships. Ships can use the combination of distilling plants and RO machines. The desalinization system on a ship is a pretty efficient system. The steam created is used to heat up incoming salt water while the incoming salt water starts to cool down steam in order to return it to is liquid state, water. The energy needed is the energy needed to heat water to boiling point plus the volume water being heated. As far as brine, create a brine pit where the salt created can be harvested. The only question is would it be free of the chemicals that are prevalent in our oceans.
