Water Industries

About 75% of the surface of the earth is covered by water, with the vast majority of this as oceans which is estimated to 97% but of all the water on earth, only 2.5% is fresh water which is either groundwater, or readily accessible water in lakes, streams, rivers, etc. and only less than 1% of the water supply on earth can be used as drinking water.

Key parameters for selecting reverse osmosis over other processing methods include:

• Quality and salinity of the water intake
• Temperature of water intake

• Efficiency of membranes has improved significantly • Energy consumption has reduced and is less than other processing methods
The IDE 330 ML/day Ashkelon Plant, Israel, is the world's largest reverse osmosis plant • Lower capital and operating costs • Most major desalination plants now use seawater reverse osmosis
