IDA World Congress

Attending IDA World Congress? Visit Carlsbad, the Western Hemisphere’s Largest Desalination Plant

IDE is proud to showcase Carlsbad, the largest desalination plant in the Western hemisphere, at the IDA World Congress, which will take place from August 30 to September 4 in San Diego.

During the show, IDE will be running tours to the Carlsbad Desalination Plant, where visitors can explore the plant that will revolutionise desalination in the U.S. Having overcome significant practical, regulatory and economic hurdles to deliver a cost-effective and environmentally friendly water supply, the plant will provide clean water to approximately 300,000 people and generate over $50 million annually for the regional economy.

IDE is proud to be a leading sponsor of the IDA World Congress, as we have for many previous congresses.
