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

the technique of removing excess salts from sea

water

is critical to making it safe and usable, but this process of

water

desalination

is also energy intensive ecosystems from waste

water

in our next report we take you inside the

world

's largest

water

desalination

plant is the jabel

water

desalination

plant in saudi -arabia this huge plant bears the title of being the largest in the

world

it produces more than 1.4 million cubic meters of

water

every day we are standing on the arabian gulf and here the salt

water

penetrates into the stations of the anniversary

water

desalination

plant, the 1.4 million cubic meters of

water

per day, benefiting the people of jabal as well as more than 7 million people in riyadh.

So what is

water

desalination

The fact is that in many countries there is a serious shortage of clean drinking

water

and

desalination

is a process that makes it safe for use and further consumption. This process removes excess

water

from sea

water

or brackish

water

. Waste

water

, known as brine, flows back into the sea and can affect marine ecosystems. A 2019 United Nations global study found that the

world

's approximately 16,000 plants produce 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

at 22 percent, and so the Jabel plant in Saudi Arabia aims to reduce the amount of concentrated brine while extracting industrially useful minerals such as sodium chloride salt and magnesium and calcium.

Researchers have filed patents for treatment technologies the waste

water

, before it flows back into the arabian gulf, here we are at the spillway, which contains all the reflections t

water

from the resort, before we send it back to the sea, these

water

s go through a treated process. We treat this

water

to be within standard environmental and safety limits. The

water

enters through the heat rejection. Sea

water

can be desalinated to extract precious minerals. The process itself is expensive and energy-intensive, but in a country where hot

water

is scarce like Saudi Arabia,

desalination

is a crucial lifeline
