With a population of more than 650 million people, Latin America represents one of the largest emerging markets for desalination and reuse.

More than 30 desalination projects are in progress currently in Latin America, with more than $ 25 Bn to be invested in them. The greatest capacity for desalination in Latin America is in Chile, in the Antofagasta region. Chile´s Codelco received approval for a $ 1 Bn desalination plant, the second-largest desalination plant in a South American country. ENAPAC project has received an initial investment of $500 million, for the largest desalination plant by reverse osmosis (SWRO) in Latin America, and the first large-scale desalinator powered with PV has permits to proceed.

On the other hand, innovation in this industry does not stop, water shortages in many of the mining areas, interest in good practices and efficient use of water in the industry have led to large investments in desalination plants associated with mining that rose to $3.9 billion USD in Chile.
