The concept of megascale desalination - 17

Israel is already doing it.

This company is building floating desalination barges.

The planet is mostly covered in water but less than 3% of it is fresh water and only 1% of it is accessible to human civilization. Absolutely essential to life; some places are stricken by drought while others get it for free or cheap. All of that is 1%. I can see the future having a market for double the earth's potable water supply. Once Israel continues to prove that economically lucrative it won't dominate that market for long.
