Water Crises

The limited fresh water resources on Earth have been put under a considerable pressure by world population growth resulting in water scarcity in many regions. Climate change and global warming have exacerbated this crisis. Per Global Risks 2015, 10th Edition published by the World Economic Forum, water crises is the top global risk in the terms of impact and 8th global risk in terms of likelihood.  Based on a study by Mekonnen and Hoekstra published in Science Advances in 2016, two-thirds of the global population (4.0 billion people) live under conditions of severe water scarcity at least 1 month of the year. Consequently, there has been a great interest in protecting existing water resources in recent years. This has led to the extensive use of desalination technology for treating salt water and efforts have been made by research teams across the world to improve these methods over the last decades.

Brine Waste Crises

Brine is a water solution with high concentration of salt solutions. Unimaginable volume of brine waste is being produced everyday by different industries such as desalination, oil and gas and mining.

323 Billion barrels of brine is being produced every year just from desalination plants and discharged to oceans. This is only one example. 

Brine management is very challenging and existing methods and technologies are either expensive or harmful to the environment (high GHG emission and brine discharge/disposal) or both.


A more environmentally friendly method of desalinatio

Our patent pending technology can eliminate brine waste by recovering more than 97% of the water with more than 60% energy saving and more than 50% cost saving while producing valuable solid salts, which result in lower CO2 emission and cost-effective brine waste elimination. 

Salacia’s mission is to overcome the challenges that the industry is currently facing. With more than 97% water recovery, we also help industries to substantially reduce their freshwater consumption.
