Tittle:
Novel ecological desalination technology for companies, hotels or small communities in remote areas
Summary:
A German company developed an ecological desalination technology that takes into account environment protection, resource efficiency and the use of renewable energies. It can be powered by any renewable energy source without need for energy buffer systems. The produced water can be used for drinking and industrial purposes. The technology is in particular interesting for companies or communities in remote areas. JV, license, manufacturing or technical cooperation agreement are possible.
Description:
A company from the north-eastern part of Germany has designed a novel seawater desalination technology.

The unique technology is based on the well-known process of mechanical vapour compression. This robust technology can be attached to any energy source, making off-grid renewable energy available for sea water desalination. Through replacing the traditional chemical seawater pre-treatment by a proprietary electrodialytic process, desalination becomes truly non-polluting. The produced water can be used for both drinking and industrial purposes.

The concept of the patented ecological desalination technology has been proven; the first plant is operating on the island of Rügen, Germany. The water produced has an outstanding quality and the brine output is considerably lower than with other desalination technologies. Because the brine is free of added chemicals, it can be exploited for salt recovery.
The unique technology is particularly aligned to the conditions and necessities of remote areas and islands in southern EU and Mediterranean countries and around the world. The entire desalination plant will come pre-installed in two 40.-ft containers. This will make it particularly easy to install in remote and difficult to access coastal areas and islands.

The ecological valuation shows that the technology complies by far the best with the environmental requirements of sustainable development. Its higher water recovery rate produces 40 % less of brine compared to reverse osmosis technology. Taking the option for salt recovery as valuable asset, the brine discharge comes to less than 10 % and increases considerably the economic outcome, the reduced specific energy consumption provided.

The technology might be interesting for:
- remote hotels or communities that are facing problems of drinking water supply
- companies or communities that are looking for options to produce table water independently from ground or spring water
- companies that are seeking to obtain feedstock from seawater and could reduce costs using concentrated sea water
- companies that want to directly use sea water concentrates (for example for wellness issues)
- companies that need to treat solid-bearing mediums or sea water concentrate with electrodialysis.

The company wants to enter new markets, in particular in semiarid coastal areas or islands. Manufacturing or technical cooperation agreements are possible. Other options could be the establishing of a Joint Venture or the licensing of the technology.
