Desalination plants contribute to the emergence of a giant dead zones.
For each liter of fresh water falls half a liter of brine. The annual volume of waste worldwide comes to 50 billion cubic meters.
It promotes not only the increase in temperature of coastal waters, but decrease in the level of oxygen.
Leader in the production of waste, Saudi Arabia (22%). Followed by UAE (20.2 percent), Kuwait (6 percent) and Qatar (5.8 per cent).
The population of Africa, the Middle East and island countries depends on the functioning of desalination plants.
Meanwhile, global warming further exacerbates the situation since it contributes to the depletion of aquifers.
