Desalinated water could ease capital’s thirst
Technical difficulties may no longer be a barrier to using desalinated seawater in Beijing, an expert said at a conference on Tuesday. Ruan Guoling, an engineer at the Tianjin Institute of Seawater Desalination and Multipurpose Utilization, said Beijing was trying to develop new supply channels to meet increasing demand. “Desalinated seawater could be a viable alternative in the future,” he added. The conference was hosted by the China Association for Science and Technology.
