Sea salt and table salt have the same general makeup--both consist mostly of the minerals sodium and chloride and share the same nutritional value. But they are very different in taste, texture and processing. In the same effect, drinking sea salt water versus drinking homemade table salt water is different for your body. Although less natural, sea salt water contains much more sodium chloride than the home-made version. The Effects of Drinking Salt Water

GE’s AquaSel system combines an industrial desalination unit and a concentration unit. The desalination unit is operated to typically remove 80%+ total dissolved solids (TDS) in the feed water; the concentration unit is specially designed to reduce waste stream volume from the system. AquaSel is a breakthrough non-thermal desalination technology with extremely high water recovery. Significant research and development, along with GE’s leading expertise in industrial desalination and zero liquid discharge technologies, helped create AquaSel technology. Desalination
Normal sea water can contain up to a few percents of salt, while drinking water contains only more than 10 ppm of salt. The most commenly used technique to desalinate is the use of reversed osmosis. This technique is able to remove the salts in one step. Desalination
With new water desalination method, potable water for disaster areas Water, water, everywhere; nor any drop to drink. Potable water is always in high demand and short supply following a natural disaster. A new technique for water desalination could lead to small, portable units that could be sent to disaster sites or remote locations.

Dirty Water, Dwindling Resources Threaten Asia-Pacific WASHINGTON, DC, August 20, 2002 (ENS) - Polluted water and poor sanitation are the biggest killers of children in Asia and the Pacific, finds a new report by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission (ESCAP) for the region. The report, which details the region's environmental problems, including water pollution, was released to help guide experts meeting later this month at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa. Worldwide, more children have died from the effects of severe diarrhea, a product of polluted water and poor sanitation, than all the people killed through armed conflicts since the Second World War.
