Summary

As a consequence of the demographic explosion, the fresh water shortage will be one of the major issues in the world in the decades to come. Among the existing solutions, the water desalination is meeting expansion.
This film presents the principles of the different methods of seawater desalination and their implementations. It draws up the balance sheet of the actual researches in this domain and it deals also with the socio-economical stakes which depend on it.
