to Fresh Water
An Unlimited Supply
The pipeline will be supplied its water by solar-powered desalination plants located on each coast: Mauritania and Senegal to the west (the Atlantic Ocean); Sudan and Djibouti to the east (the Red Sea).
Upon completion, and in perpetuity, TAP will distribute an unlimited supply of safe, free, clean water for communities and people across the Sahel, and cost-efficient water for use in agriculture, forestry and commercial entities in all 11 countries in the region.
With a zero-carbon footprint, TAP is also designed as a pH-neutral project which will not disturb the salt/alkaline balance in the oceans, since all the brine will be directed to land-based salt ponds for the harvesting of salt and lithium.
