  • The potential of desalination of seawater and brackish water to meet growing municipal and industrial requirements is beginning to be realised slowly. Industries such as thermal power plants and oil refineries are setting up large-scale desalination plants to meet their water requirements efficiently.
  • On the municipal front, Tamil Nadu, which is the most active desalination market, has set up medium- to large-scale plants to meet its drinking water requirements. In the last few years, Gujarat has also experienced a tremendous increase in desalination demand due to its industrial growth. At least 800 mld of desalination capacity will be added in these two states alone in the next 3-4 years.
  • There are increased initiatives to manage the high energy costs associated with desalination. More energy-efficient thermal technologies such as multiple-effect distillation are gaining prominence in the industrial segment. Advanced technologies such as the ultrafiltration membrane technology, electrochemical desalination module technology and solar desalination are also being tested to reduce the cost of desalination. Further, superior equipment such as variable frequency drives is being deployed to reduce energy consumption.
  • Private players presence in the desalination market has also increased. New formats and models such as build-own-operate-transfer and hybrid annuity model are being deployed to ensure viability and timely execution of projects. At the same time, there is new openness to adopting automation tools and devices. Plants are being fully automated with highly sophisticated distributed control systems.
  • That said, the current water demand-supply gap is large. Simultaneously, freshwater resources are depleting rapidly. New desalination capacity must be built quickly in order to meet the growing industrial and municipal water demand. Vast amounts of investment will be required to take up this task. Thus, the private sector needs to play a larger role in driving innovation and growth. Meanwhile, issues arising from high energy costs, environmental damages and regulatory uncertainty need to be addressed in a time-bound and effective manner.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the emerging requirements and new opportunities in the desalination segment and discuss the key challenges. The conference will focus on strategies and solutions to meet the future desalination requirements. It will also showcase some noteworthy initiatives, projects and technologies.

  • What is the current state of deployment of these desalination technologies? What are the new advancements in this technology?
  • What are the specific issues and challenges? What is the segment outlook?


  • What are the broad environmental consequences of seawater desalination processes? What environmental norms and regulations are in place?
  • What are the current practices for brine management?
  • What steps can be taken to reduce the impact on the marine environment?


  • What are some of the noteworthy desalination projects in the municipal and industrial water segment? What are the specific features (in terms of installed capacity, project cost, land requirement, production cost, quality of treatment, etc.)?
  • What are the advanced technologies and solutions deployed?
  • What are the key challenges and what lessons can be learnt?


  • What are developments, trends and experiences in desalination at a global scale?
