A new United Arab Emirates solar desalination method could help drastically reduce the adverse environmental impacts of the desalination process that the country depends upon for much of its freshwater supply.
The plan involves using a new type of technology being developed by the UAE that has already shown a decrease in environmental harm and operating costs of existing desalination technology. So far they are testing the concept at over 30 sites, with the United Arab Emirates solar desalination method already being closely watched by the country's neighbors. Hopefully, the United Arab Emirates will lead by example.
