ACCIONA highlights desalination on World Water Day

  • ACCIONA highlights desalination on World Water Day
  • Once again, the company gives a high profile to World Water Day by launching a statement on water shortages and desalination as a solution for this problem.

About the entity

The water business of ACCIONA concentrates on water treatment and reverse osmosis desalination, a technology in which it is the world leader.

On the occasion of World Water Day, ACCIONA, an international leader in desalination, has highlighted the seawater desalination like a solution to the scarcity of drinking water.

The campaign, which starts by commemorating World Water Day, will continue throughout the year with a series of actions under the slogan “#97aguademar”.

This initiative seeks to raise awareness of reality: 97% of the planet’s water is salty, but only 3% is fresh water and just 0.4% suitable for human consumption. As a result, applying good water management to ensure its availability is key to present and future well-being.

Water shortages already affect more than 40% of the world’s population, and for that reason, ACCIONA wishes to give visibility to the solution it applies on a daily basis: desalination and the re-use of wastewater to achieve a more sustainable future.

With the aim of highlighting the importance of this solution, World Water Day is held worldwide on March 22nd.
