Human expansion has caused irreversible damage to the natural water cycle. Desalination seems to have become the solution for the protection of water but it has been executed poorly. The reason water desalination has failed to remedy the issue of water shortages is because it is extremely expensive and the water quality is poor.
Scientists are currently finding ways to create fresh water but due to large energy consumption, seawater is rarely used to make fresh water. There are more than 12,000 seawater desalination plants around the world that handle 6.5 billion tons of water per year. The average cost of a ton of fresh water created this way is between US$1 and US$1.3. This makes it extremely expensive for seawater to be treated into fresh water. However, it can help countries that do not have easy access to fresh water.
Desalination has become a unique solution in solving fresh water shortages. Even by 2025, development of seawater desalination will not be able to keep up with water shortages, which will lead to huge issues around the world.
A molecular cracking method was applied to seawater desalination for the first time in Taiwan in 2015. Through steam recycling and special desalination techniques, molecular cracking can solve the issue of poor water quality. We are attempting to solve the world’s issue of water shortage by presenting low-cost desalination technology to create clean water.
