AEHI CEO Cites United Nations Data on Global Water Crisis and Urges Wider Use of Nuclear Desalination Reactors
Friday, Aug 27, 2020

Don Gillispie, CEO of Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI);, an Eagle-Idaho based developer of large-scale nuclear and green energy projects including nuclear power plants and nuclear desalination reactors, today stated, “United Nations ( data now confirms that the world is in the midst of a water crisis with one in six people worldwide without sufficient amounts of fresh water. In my opinion, one solution to this problem should be nuclear desalination reactors that can produce large amounts of fresh clean water.”  


According to Gillispie, “The worldwide fresh water crisis, which is expected to outstrip supply by 2025 per the UN, could be helped significantly by using desalination systems powered by commercial nuclear reactors. Seawater desalination as an alternate source of fresh water has been used primarily with fossil plants around the world, but until now there hasn’t been a pairing of large commercial nuclear reactors with desalination systems. Nuclear powered desalination not only provides more affordable fresh clean water, but also excess electricity and carbon credits.”


Gillispie, whose AEHI subsidiary Green World Waterâ„¢ ( plans to produce and market one of the world’s first large commercial nuclear desalination reactors, stated, “The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that 1.4 million children die every year from illness caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. WHO estimates that there are 4000 children dying every single day because of this fresh water crisis. Nuclear desalination reactors would give many of these children the fresh water to live.”


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a recent report stating that 2.3 billion people live in water-stressed regions. “Lack of fresh water greatly constrains a country’s development in all respects,” stated the IAEA report. “Nuclear desalination thus becomes a popular solution.”

Gillispie agrees, “Nuclear desalination reactors have the ability to produce clean, fresh water from the ocean, rivers, and even brackish sources. These reactors can also generate enough electricity to supply the energy needs of entire communities and pump water inland to drought stricken areas.”
