WION Dispatch: Inside the world's biggest water desalination facility | World News

The technique of removing excess salts from sea

water

is crucial to making it safe and usable, but this

water

desalination

process is also energy intensive. Saudi Arabia is the

world

's largest producer of desalinated

water

where researchers have patented several technologies to extract minerals from

water

while protecting the sea ecosystems from sewage in our next report we will take you inside the

world

's largest

water

desalination

facility

it is the jabel

water

desalination

plant in saudi arabia this huge

facility

is labeled from being the largest in the

world

it produces more than 1.4 million cubic meters of

water

a day we are standing next to the Arabian gulf and here the salt

water

enters the stations of the jubilee

water

desalination

plant that produces 1.4 million cubic meters of

water

per day that benefits the people of Jabal as well as more than 7 million people in Riyadh, so, what is

water

desalination

?

It is a fact that there is a serious shortage of drinking

water

in many countries and

desalination

Ination of sea

water

is a process that makes it safe for further use and consumption. In this process, excess

water

is removed from sea

water

or brackish

water

. Essentially, the boar plant in Saudi Arabia extracts useful minerals from sea

water

, but there's a problem: Salt

water

is very high. Waste

water

known as brine returns to the sea and can affect marine ecosystems. A 2019 United Nations global study found that the

world

's approximately 16,000 plants produced an average of 1.5 liters of brine for every liter of fresh

water

.

Saudi Arabia is the

world

's largest producer of this waste

water

by 22 percent and that is why the Saudi Jabel plant aims to reduce the amount of concentrated brine while extracting industrially useful minerals such as salt from sodium magnesium calcium chloride researchers have applied for patents for technologies to treat waste
