A new source of fresh water for agriculture

Agricultural decline in most countries is linked to the fresh water shortage, drought and, as a result, the loss of fertile land. A chronic lack of fresh water for irrigation could jeopardise the entire industry, so an efficient and cost-effective way to desalinate sea water is needed to give a chance to restore crops around the world. Until now, most attempts at seawater desalination have turned out to be too expensive and energy-intensive.

By 2040, a new, efficient way to desalinate sea water has became available: it uses nano-tech graphene. This is a modified carbon layer one atom thick, which became the basis of the membrane that allows only water molecules to pass through and has the requisite strength for continued use. This method of desalination makes it possible to produce fresh water on the massive scale necessary for farming and at a low cost.

It will be a real salvation for Central Africa and Latin America, a hope for survival in a prolonged drought. Also, it will give the opportunity for countries with rich marine resources such as Cyprus, Greece, New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar, India, South-East Asia to develop agriculture more effectively.

Andrés Medel Sánchez Lara And also force the industry to have more sustainable processes, do we really that the amount of products they sale to us? At least in Mexico, the soda industry is one of the most that takes rivers and lakes water. Many countries and small cities do not have enough water because these industries are taking their natural resources and taking them to another place, it does not returns.

Andrés Medel Sánchez Lara I think it may solve the effects but not the cause. In my opinion we should be focus on the way the water we use is being polluted, how it is been processed. Make efforts on cleaning the dirty water we already have, without it we will have only more polluted water and land. Will the future of sea will be the same as rivers and lakes?

aidenben In most regions of the world, over 70 percent of freshwater is used for agriculture. By 2050, feeding a planet of 9 billion people will require an estimated 50 percent increase in agricultural production and a 15 percent increase in water withdrawals.
