Believed to have at least 15 desalination plants in operation

Trinidad and Tobago

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago uses desalination to open up more of the island’s water supply for drinking purposes. The country’s desalination plant, opened in March 2003, is considered to be the first of its kind. It was the largest desalination facility in the Americas, and it processes 28,800,000 US gallons (109,000 m3) of water a day at the price of $2.67 per 1,000 US gallons (3.8 m3).[157]

This plant will be located at Trinidad’s Point Lisas Industrial Estate, a park of more than 12 companies in various manufacturing and processing functions, and it will allow for easy access to water for both factories and residents in the country.[158]
