Veolia Water Australia and New Zealand - What is desalination

There are two main desalination technologies - thermal desalination (heating the seawater and condensing the vapour to produce fresh water) and reverse osmosis (pushing seawater through a membrane to separate salt and impurities from the fresh water). Desalination is the process of separating salt from seawater to produce fresh drinking water.
