Why is MUDT Revolutionizing the Agriculture?

For the Global Food Security


Global food security is a pressing challenge, exacerbated by increasing water scarcity and a growing population. Traditional freshwater sources are under strain, necessitating innovative approaches to agricultural water management. Desalinated water emerges as a promising solution, offering a sustainable and abundant water source for agricultural use. How is MUDT (Multitasking Unconventional Desalination Technology) opening a new era in desalination?

  1. The Evolution of Desalination Technology

Desalination, historically perceived as energy-intensive and costly, has undergone significant advancements. Modern techniques, such as reverse osmosis, have become more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. The integration of renewable energy sources further enhances the sustainability of desalination processes.

  1. Environmental and Social Impacts
  2. a) While desalination offers numerous benefits, it also poses environmental challenges, particularly related to brine disposal and marine ecosystems.
  3. b) The desalinated water cost is more expensive than the crop price.

That is why these progresses in desalination are far from being able to solve the food security problems.


  1. A Revolutionary Desalination Technology: A New Era for Agriculture

In an unprecedented leap forward, Scientechnix, led by Professor Doctor Alain ELAYI, has introduced a groundbreaking desalination technology, making desalinated water economically viable for agriculture. This marks a pivotal moment in agricultural history.

  1. Why Revolutionary?

Imagine a desalination plant producing only 10,000 m³ of water per day. Now, envision this water nurturing fields of wheat for example. How much wheat can we produce? This depends of course upon many factors and particularly local conditions. By integrating water techniques recommended by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), It is possible to increase, in several manners, the  water efficiency for agriculture purposes. Considering that 1250 m3 of water produce 1 ton of wheat, the 10,000 m³ of water per day installation yields approximately  2,900 tons of wheat annually. 

The average global wheat consumption per person is around 67 kg per year. With this technology, we can provide wheat for about 43,000 people annually. Over the lifespan of a 50-year desalination installation, this equates to a sustainable food source for thousands. According to FAO, much more wheat can be obtained with 1250 m³ of water (see FAO document cited in the reference below). This is not a distant dream but a tangible reality, thanks to Scientechnix’s innovative approach.

  1. How is this Possible?

Because the technology of Scientechnix requires almost no cost for  the water production. No maitenance for wear, no membrane replacement, …


In the course of a decade of rigorous research and development, our team at Scientechnix has achieved a groundbreaking feat: developing a desalination technology that not only addresses global water scarcity but does so at a cost low enough to revolutionize agricultural irrigation. This is not just an incremental improvement, but a paradigm shift in how we can sustainably manage water resources for food production. 

In Sientechnix , we do care particularly, about the people that  suffer from hunger every single day. Hopefully, they will also fully bebefit from this technology
