Resumen:
Una empresa alemana ha desarrollado una tecnología ecológica de desalación que garantiza la protección ambiental y la eficiencia de recursos y utiliza energías renovables. La tecnología puede alimentarse con cualquier fuente de energía renovable sin necesidad de utilizar sistemas de almacenamiento de energía. El agua producida de primera calidad se emplea con fines potables e industriales. La tecnología es interesante para plantas o comunidades en áreas remotas y se basa en el conocido proceso de compresión de vapor mecánica. La sustitución del pretratamiento químico de agua de mar tradicional por un proceso electrodialítico hace que la desalación sea un proceso no contaminante. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de joint venture, licencia, fabricación o cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Novel ecological seawater desalination technology for companies, hotels or small communities in remote areas
Summary:
A German company developed an ecological desalination technology that ensures environment protection, resource efficiency and uses renewable energies.

It can be powered by any renewable energy source without need for energy buffer systems. The produced water is of best quality and can be used for drinking and industrial purposes. The technology is interesting for plants or communities in remote areas. Joint Venture, license, manufacturing or technical cooperation agreements 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 seawater desalination. Through replacing the traditional chemical seawater pre-treatment by a proprietary electro dialytic 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. The brine is free of added chemicals. It can be also 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 in 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 seawater
- Companies that want to directly use seawater concentrates (for example for wellness issues)
- Companies that need to treat solid-bearing mediums or seawater concentrate with electro dialysis.

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 agreement of the technology.
