The Pipe - The New Desalination Project

'The Pipe' is a new desalination project designed by a Canada based electrical engineer, Aziz Khalili that promises to provide 1.5 billion gallons of clean drinking water.

The project is one of the 10 finalists for the 2016 Land Art Generator Initiative biennial design competition. The solar-powered plant relies on electromagnetic desalination methods to turn seawater into clean water.

It filters the salty by product through thermal baths and then simultaneously flushes it back into the Pacific ocean.
