Deep Sea Water

GLOBAL DEEP SEA WATERFields of Use for Deep Sea Water

Deep sea water is independent sea water 200 meters below sea level where no sunlight can reach. With a wealth of inorganic salts dissolved in it, deep sea water is utilized throughout the energy, food, health, beauty, tourism, and leisure sectors as well as drinking water. Further advanced research is underway in most fields.
