Resumen:
An Italian researchers group has developed an innovative technology (available for demonstration) able to treat sea water without membranes, producing at the same time electricity and basic chemicals as HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) and NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide). The technology is able to treat all the concentrated brines that are the end products if a reverse osmosis membranes system is used to treat sea water. The researchers are looking for commercial agency agreement with technical assistance.

Desalination technology: an environmentally friendly system that can create drinking water from the sea at the same time generating electricity and basic chemicals.
Summary:
An Italian researchers group has developed an innovative technology (available for demonstration) able to treat sea water without membranes,producing at the same time electricity and basic chemicals as HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) and NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide). The technology is able to treat all the concentrated brines that are the end products if a reverse osmosis membranes system is used to treat sea water.

Description:
An Italian researchers group, that is going to start a company in the short term, has developed a desalination technology which is effective, environmentallly friendly,and economically profitable. The technology is able to treat all the concentrated brines that are the end products if a reverse osmosis membranes system is used to treat sea water for human use. It is available for demonstration.
This is the only recognized international patented technology that during the desalination process is able to produce:
· drinkable water (for human, agricultural and industrial uses);
· electricity in surplus on consumption;
· chemicals products with high value and commercial demand: NaOH and HCl;
· No brine or waste product harmful to the environment.
Desalination is a process able to remove all the salts dissolved into the sea water with the aim to produce fresh and drinkable water from the sea water or brackish water.
All the technologies actually used for this purpose present on the market have an electrical consumption higher if compared to the conventional technologies used for the fresh water treatments; furthermore, concerns about the potential environmental impacts of large plants with the production of waste brines (which by law cannot be spilled into the sea) limit commercial development.
Nowadays there is no definitively technology able to satisfy increasingly stringent environmental requirements while maintaining high efficiencies and low operating costs. With this in mind, the researchers have taken steps, they have developed a new technology for the desalination with extremely high performance and "environmentally friendly".
It is characterized by low operating costs and by the possibility of chemically enhancing waste (brine) through the production of basic chemicals
This innovation is an important technological and economic evolution for the treatment of sea water and for all type of brines in general, included brines that are produced by food industries (20 gr/lt of NaCl), canned food, and similar to them. The technology offers desalinated water 99% (for human use) with lowered operating costs, taking advantage of the fact that it is able to produce electricity and to transform the solute (eg. sodium chloride), in its conjugated acids and bases (eg hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide) entailing a huge advantage when the problem of brine management as a waste product of desalination does not occur. The type of partnereship considered: commercial agency agreement with technical assistance: the group is looking for agents selling to comapnies working with desalination plants.
Commercial agreement with technical assistance; companies in which brines and brackish water are a problem
Advantages and Innovations:
- Innovative and unique system able to purify sea water without the use of membranes;
- Electric energy production that can be sold on the market;
- Basic chemicals (HCl and NaOH) that can be sold on the market.
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
IPs:
Secret Know-how,Granted patent or patent application essential,Exclusive Rights
