A member of the Board of Directors of the General Company for Desalination and the director of the desalination plant in Tobruk, Fathallah Naas, warned that desalination plants in Libya would cease to operate after two months.

Naas added that the lack of second choices would result in the company having no choice but to shut down all plants having a major effect on approximately one and a half million citizens dependent on desalinated water.

Naas clarified that the desalination plants had entered this dangerous stage because a lack of the availability of necessary and essential chemicals that are added in the process of desalination, the amount of chemicals would only cover another two months.
