51. Mega-scale desalination is a large – scale water desalination

Due to the high salt content, seawater is unfit for drinking. Desalination of sea water allows you to make seawater suitable for drinking and for use it for other purposes. Installation of sea water desalination, developed on new physical principles, recreates the process of freezing water for fractions of microseconds. The process of freezing water creates shear conditions for the whole structure of the water molecule in order to change its energy state, the solubility, other parameters, in the end, the impurities dissolved in it precipitate.
