Climate-neutral desalination relies solely on renewable energy which doesn’t produce GHGs and contribute to climate change. MEB has been in the industry for over 10 years, and we have mastered treating seawater or brackish aquifers on all scales, from small, decentralized rural installations to the kinds of megaprojects that transformed nations in arid regions – while minimizing or eliminating completely, the associated greenhouse gas emissions.
Specialists around the world have pointed out that while the world population is steadily increasing, the amount of fresh water is pretty much a fixed asset.
