Industry Tags: Solar Desalination

The UAE would establish world's largest solar-powered desalination plant that will process more than 22 million gallons of potable water per day. 
The new plant at Ras Al Khaimah emirate would also generate 20 MW of electricity. It will implement the most advanced reverse osmosis and filtration technologies and, when operational, will push unit production rates down drastically. 
The plant was announced by private service utility and solutions provider Utico Middle East that aims at setting a desalination business model. Desalination is the process of removing salt and other minerals from saline water. 
The project would set the new benchmark for the desalination business model and will be the world's greenest desalination plant with the least CO2 emissions, Richard Menezes, Executive Vice Chairman of Utico Middle East, said.
