Salton sea Salton sea Presentation Transcript

  • •The problem: 25% more salt than the ocean •Solution: Green solar powered desalinization plant(s) •Benefits: Potable water for agriculture & people
  •  Salton Sea: A sea in California  The Salton Sea is a shallow, saline, endorheic rift lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault, predominantly in California's Imperial and Coachella Valleys.  Area: 376.1 sq miles (974 km²)  Surface elevation: -2Length26' (-69 m)  Length: 34.8 miles (56 km)  Changing Salt Water into Clean, potable water is our goal
  • Saudi Arabia is the largest producer of desalinized water  The Saudis along with IBM have produced green desalinization plants and the Saudis intend to export this technology too
  • Simple green illustration  Newer photovoltaic cells produce six times the power that they once produced
  • Treatment nerve center monitors water quality  This is a green control center in Saudi Arabia
  • We have the Power  Wind & Solar power are nearby to supply the power  It can also be constructed near the Salton Sea too
  • We can perfect a green desalinization plant at the Salton Sea or import the technology if we fail to act  Here is a small list of nations that will need desalinization plants, some operational
  • Clean Water for the environment benefits everyone  Clean potable water for multi purposes is a possibility  The technology exists
  • The end Produced by Brian Knofler
