Water Projects – Large Scale Water Desalination


IPRO 497-348: A Vision for Developing Large-Scale Desalination in the Sahara Desert

With increasing global strain on fresh water sources and rising demand for higher food production, the goal is to apply modern technologies and strategies to an independent and sustainable system; one that could rely exclusively on the sea as the renewable source for water and that could not only be self-sufficient but substantially profitable for the investing parties and residents.

The project scope is designed for a single scenario within the Egyptian Sahara, however the system is to become a template for uninhabitable coastal deserts throughout the globe; from the coastal Sahara to the Namib desert or Death valley, the system could bring long term relief to imminent problems like urban sprawl, limited food production and desertification, to name a few.
