    Today, one out of three people don’t have access to safe drinking water. And that’s the result of many things, but one of them is that 96.5% of that water is found in our oceans. It’s saturated with salt, and undrinkable. Most of the freshwater is locked away in glaciers or deep underground. Less than one percent of it is available to us. So why can’t we just take all that seawater, filter out the salt, and have a nearly unlimited supply of clean, drinkable water?

Why not use sea water to generate power by using water fall implementation designing and huge turbines and used that natural energy to power the process in converting saline water to fresh water? It would mean to build a dam like power plant to use natural power conversion with sea water!

The brine argument is silly. Salt doesn’t evaporate in the ocean, so it produces brine in the same way, then diluted by the rainfall cycle. The amounts of brine going back into the ocean from desalination is insignificant. Passive pumps are a possible design idea since the ocean is almost always in motion. Capture that energy as a pump to power it through the osmosis system.

Brine is also produced when seawater is evaporated by the sun. Of course eventually sweet water returns to the oceans by all these millions of rivers. What they could do is use big vessels and bring the brine away from the coast to the open sea.

There are places you can store salt or let the brine evaporate in such barren place. Use salt or leave it as it will not hurt anyone. However, pouring it back in sea is very harmful.

They just need to collect wastewater, that is not salty at all... clean it like we normally do in a wastewater treatment plant... and then at the very end... Mix the cleaned wasterwater with the salty brine... 1:1 ratio... and boom, you should be back near seawater saltiness and it should be safer to dump back in the water... or hell just use that mix and throw it back into the desalination plant to squeeze out more fresh water right? All that fresh water that we create from that process of desalination isn't kept indefinitely by us... it has to go somewhere, it goes to wastewater treatment plants, storm drains, evaporates on lawns etc... Anyways the priority should always, always, always be on protection of marine life and not harming our ecosystems.

71% of the Earth may be covered in water, but all the crap, pollution and plastic we keep dumping into the oceans coupled with our affinity to use fossil fuels and give global a helping hand thus causing climate associated catastrophes sure as hell ain’t helping! It’s not about blaming China, India or the USA, it’s about various collective governments still failing to take these multiple issues seriously. The bottom line? We could slow down climate .... only if we all take huge action to overhaul our way of life right from the way we consume food, buy clothing, go on vacation, dispose of trash, use phones, farming, use of chemicals and pesticides, how we source the raw materials for commerce and rely heavily on oil/gas. We also seriously need to start ways of water reclamation, at the very least, in areas that have significantly higher volumes of water, we need to re-educate folks to use water as the precious resource it is responsibly and understand that water conservation is paramount. I have some whisper of hope that we could change, but that’s subject to regional, national and international laws and cooperation.

Well first off the brine issue is somewhat offset by the treated waste water that is put back in the sea, so intake and outlet technology for these two processes needs attention. The molten salt nuclear reactor,which can burn current nuclear waste, is a way to produce both power and desalinate water. Why our government stopped research on a working model of this type of reactor has not been explained, maybe because it didn't produce weapons grade material? Also the waste from this type of reactor has a very much shorter half life the the current reactors. Fresh water and electrical power from portable Thorium liquid salt reactors seems like a viable solution to both these problems. The Chinese are suppose to have a commercial molten salt reactor on line this year, where is the free world on this issue?

My simple brain: Desalination is good as provides water .. Problem = Excess Brine Solution? = Stop mining & importing salt elsewhere and limit salt production to desalination plants, that way to meet the demands for salt they must produce more water & build more plants. Results = good for the plant as they have 2 incomes and no waste (save fossil fuels already used) they can sell the salt which = more investment in the tech and more desalination plants 🤷‍♂️ until innovation takes over it gets cheaper and more efficient and we all get one in 2055 built in to water bottles for $0.50

Reducing the use of fresh water would also make an impact. There is a technology to use salt water or any other sort of water in agriculture. It only works in areas with dry air but these are often the very areas where a better use of water is needed. https://mtkass.blogspot.com/2007/09/i-wish-id-thought-of-that-growing.html

Engendering has to evolve for a hybrid wind solar thermal exchange natural gas desalination plant! Flaring is the waste of natural gas that could be used in desalination processes! Placement of these plants has to make sense where they are less energy dependent! I saw the CA plant did not see one solar panel! Use some of that land that is unusable to build energy farms to reduce the consumption of the plants!

The brine byproduct could be sold to food manufacturers who could process it into a refined or edible and safe form for food or the finished brine product itself. Great for soupy recipes and any excess could be use to feed homeless people or people in dire need. So dumping brine into the ocean would be reduced. As for energy savings, thermal energy storage has some promises, but works best with alternative energy sources like solar, wind, and even hydro energy producers. Heck, salt ions are charged ions and if we can manipulate that into energy, it could cut the cost of desalinating water. Just throwing it out there.
