Abstract [sv]

This essay is presenting the alteration of a discourse on the basis of the shifting belief in desalination as a process, in Sweden during 1953–1978. At this time a discussion about the supposed emerging lack of fresh water resources in the south of Sweden took place. The analysis is discerning three main tendencies in the discourse regarding the belief in desalination. The first is called Desalination – Not a problem within Sweden, recognizes the issue of fresh water lack, in the world. The matter is although not a crisis for the Swedish population and the intense cost of the method is well known. The second tendency Desalination – The expectation, is starting to see the world’s lack of fresh water as an emerging issue that is also concerning Sweden, in particular the south of Sweden. Desalination was promising to be a good solution, and the matter of cost effectiveness showed potential to be resolved. The third tendency named Desalination – The awareness, shows how the fresh water in Sweden is no longer considered to vanish. The issue is now more general and an awareness and purification of the existing fresh water, needs to be promoted. The cost of desalination will not to be lowered in a reasonable time. The altering discourse of desalination made an influence at the specific times. A lot of recourses and time was set of for research and development. The fresh water topic is still not today solved. Many proposals concerning the world’s fresh water resources and the question of desalination as a cost-effective solution are in progress. The discourse regarding desalination is today vital and demonstrates how ideas and utterances provide different stages of awareness and action.
