Desalination of sea water is a water alternative management wich allows the use of the greatest reservoirs in the world: the oceans.
Seawater desalination technology made remarkable strides in many arid areas of the world. Increasing water crisis throughout the worlkd is the key aspect to drive the market need for water desalination over the coming years.
With the advances of desalination technologies, sea water has become and interesting water source to cope with fresh water shortage.
This process can be applied wherever a reliable source of water is needed. The most widely applied and commercially available technologies for sea wter desalination can be divided in two types: membrane processes and thermal processes.
Reverse osmosis and Nanofiltration are currently the leading sea water desalination solutions. The advances in key equipment (membranes, pumps, energy cost recovery devices), turned the process energy efficient, resulting in a low investment costs and low operaional costs.
All type of water can be produced from a desalination plant: Process water, Boiler water feeds, Food and beverage preparation, Food processing, Rain water harvesting systems, Car washes, Ice and drinking water production, Laboratory water supplies, Manufacturing.
