Welcome to the Caribbean Desalination Association (CaribDA) website. Against a background of rising demand for drinking water and limited freshwater sources, developments in desalination technology continue in the search for economic and environmentally friendly methods to supply potable or high quality industrial water from brackish, saline or waste water sources. Desalination technology is rapidly gaining prominence around the world with exponentially increasing desalinated water production capacity and increasing numbers of all sizes of desalination plants internationally. There is now global desalinated water production capacity of over 86.8 million cubic meters per day.
As a non-profit organization looking to promote desalination technologies for treating water from whatever source, membership of CaribDA is open to persons residing within the Caribbean region and also those persons from outside the region who have an active interest in the use of desalination technology within the Caribbean. CaribDA offers technical conferences, training, workshops, newsletters and other networking forums. We aim to share knowledge, experience and resources, contribute to the development of the Caribbean in an economic and environmentally friendly manner through the use of the latest desalination technology, promote student learning and assist with water related humanitarian relief efforts. We look forward to your participation!
