Traditional water desalination technologies require significant amounts of energy for water heating. Most of the energy used in desalination plants is produced by burning fossil fuels, contributing significantly to global warming.

Water plant emissions equal to 76M tons of CO2 per year and are expected to grow to 218M tons by 2040.

Waste salt brine is poured back into the sea increasing seawater temperature and harming sea-bottom aquatic life.
