Turning desert into oasis

We will look at the some different methods to achieve our goal to turn deserts of the world into oasis.

VEGETATION – Method number One
==============================

We list increasing vegetation as the number one method.

Here are some videos on how to it has been done in different countries of the world.

1. China: Couple turns desert into oasis

 

2. Egypt: The Amazing Forest in the Desert

 

3. Morocco: A desert goes green

 

4. Qatar: Qatar’s Ambitious Plan to Turn the Desert Green

 

5. Israel: Growing Forests in the Desert

 

6. Peru: Creating Water in the Atacama Desert

A really interesting way to produce water in the desert – fognets…

 

The Motto of the Day

We have great amounts of:

1. Sea water

2. Sand

3. Sunshine

So we will concentrate on how to transform these into things beneficial to the mankind.

We will turn sea water to domestic water useable for a) irrigation and b) to be consumed by farm animals.
We will find methods to purify the sea water to c) potable drinking water for human consumption.

We will find methods to fight the sand storms and methods of making the sand fixed and non flying.

We will cover methods to transfer sun energy to electricity to power and to be used in the above processes.

Seawater to conquer the desert

Desalination plant in Al Jubail – Seawater to conquer the desert.

Desalinating the sea water in grand industrial scale.

Its treatment capacity is 100,000 m3 per day. The industrial city of Al Jubail MSF has two installations MSF (Multistage Flash Desalination) and three reverse osmosis plants with a combined capacity of 84,000 m3 per day. This batch of plants will supply the strong and growing demand of water that exists in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.

Drinkable Sea Water

Drinkable Sea Water
Before you scream ‘absurd’, let me tell you that I am talking about Puri – a sea water desalinating bottle. There are several ways to remove saline from sea water, for example evaporation, vapor-pressure, and ion-exchange membrane method but all of them are not practical for use on a life raft or rescue boat and require big equipments. The Puri on the other hand is a slim portable bottle that works with a pumping action. Take a look at its video below.

Desalinating sea water – part 2

Introduction to desalinating

97% of the earth´s water is seawater
salt content c. 35,000 mg / liter

Domestic water supply requires:
– Dissolved solids content < 1000 mg/l - Drinking water < 500 mg/l Desalinating refers to the wide range of technical processes designed to remove salts from the water. Source: desline.com/geneva/banat.pdf Water quality - desalinating

Desalinating sea water

“Salt water is desalinated to produce fresh water suitable for human consumption or irrigation. One potential byproduct of desalination is salt. Desalination is used on many seagoing ships and submarines. Most of the modern interest in desalination is focused on developing cost-effective ways of providing fresh water for human use. Along with recycled wastewater, this is one of the few rainfall-independent water sources.

Due to relatively high energy consumption, the costs of desalinating sea water are generally higher than the alternatives (fresh water from rivers or groundwater, water recycling and water conservation), but alternatives are not always available.”

How to turn deserts into oasis?

Large parts of the land in Africa are deserts with plenty of sand – just pure sand. The deserts of the world are expanding.

In this site we will take up themes on how to turn deserts into oasis and paradises.

The main thing that is needed is plenty of water which can be used to turn the deserts into oasis.

On the other hand there is plenty of salt water available. So we will make article on how to turn salt water into water which can be used for growing
the plants in the areas with plenty of sand.

This blog will grow in detail with time. See you soon.

How to produce pure drinking water?

In this blog we will concentrate on the theme: How to produce pure drinking water.

There is plenty of water in the world, but it is mainly salt water. On the other hand there is a tremendous shortage of pure drinking water.
So how to change salt water into pure drinking water?

We will consider various methods on how to convert household waste water into pure drinking water. What is NEW WATER produced in Singapore.

How to distil salt water into potable water without salt?

The themes around pure water are numerous.
