[Desalination: Present and Future]

The need for high-quality water significantly increased during the second half of the last century. While heading towards the third millennium, an important problem is about to be solved at a near-affordable cost. The cost of desalinated water is decreasing, and this trend is continuing. Pure, high-quality drinking water is essential for day to day living, food production, better industry, and a better standard of living. The article summarizes the techniques, trends, economy, environment, energy aspects, and other significant parameters associated with the state of the art of modern desalination.
