In addition, changes in weather patterns in the Caribbean due to climate change are exacerbating existing water challenges.
Desalination is not new to the Caribbean, but extracting clean water from seawater is becoming an increasingly integral part of the region’s search for water security.
Since 2007, 68 new desalination plants have been built across the Caribbean, which now boasts an installed capacity of 782,000 cubic metres of purified water per day, according to the Caribbean Desalination Association.
The Molten Salt Battery is a battery to watch right now. An overview.
In Molten Salt Batteries (also known as liquid metal batteries) two liquid electrodes are separated by a molten salt electrolyte.
Characteristic of salts is that these are guiding in the liquid state because the ions are allowed to move freely. The salt and the electrodes separate themselves by their different densities and immiscibility. Read More
There might be a solutions for the future. A desalination plant which is cost efficient and delivers health, cheap drinking water
Desalination of Pacific Ocean water may prove to be a cheaper solution for California. California is running out of water. Since 2010 progressive drought is rendering the Central Valley, into a desert.
The San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers are drying up as is the aquifer beneath them. The Colorado River basin no longer meets the freshwater demands of both landowners and city dwellers in the U.S. Southwest. Read More
