The world is in need of fresh water. 97% of the water on earth is salted, with an average salinity of 3.5% – way too high for drinking, industry or agriculture. The planet’s fresh water is very unevenly distributed, with most of it being in the form of ice, snow, groundwater and soil moisture. Only 0.3% is in liquid form on the surface. Of the liquid surface fresh water, 87% is contained in lakes, 11% in swamps, and only 2% in rivers.
So getting fresh water to the right place and in the right quantities is critical for life on earth.
Roughly 80% of people around the world live within 60 miles of a coast, so using seawater desalination is an obvious solution to the lack of fresh water we face.
IDE solves the water treatment challenges of the world. That’s what motivates our people to deliver continually outstanding performance to our customers. Our best water solutions are created working together with our customers, partners and the environment. We understand that what really counts is developing plants that reliably and consistently hit performance targets and delivering on the promises we make.
