However, the South Korean desalination initiative has a humanitarian goal as well, since much of the world's population faces a future of uncertain access to clean water. SeaHERO (Seawater Engineering & Architecture of High Efficiency RO) was launched by the South Korean government in August 2007. The program is coordinated by In S Kim, executive director of the Center for Seawater Desalination Plant located at Gung Ju Institute of Science & Technology. The six-year program has the goal of providing innovation in reverse-osmosis membranes, energy recovery and reducing the cost of engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance.
