Solutions for Water Desalination

Water and energy are basic needs of all humans living on this planet. Access to sufficient quantities of safe water for daily use is critical to health and wellbeing, and also provides the opportunity to achieve prosperity and development. However, many regions suffer from severe fresh water and energy shortages. The effects of climate change, population growth, and the rise of industrialization have played a significant role in water scarcity and have had a substantial impact on water demand. Desalination of seawater and brackish water technology has the capability to handle this problem and to augment the increasing demand for fresh water supplies.

We help our Clients to navigate a wide range of products on the global market and choose the equipment that can be used most effectively based on their needs and technical conditions.

Desalination technologies are capable of treating water from a wide variety of sources, including, but not limited to, brackish groundwater, surface water, seawater, and domestic and industrial wastewater.  As desalination technologies have developed and improved, the cost to build desalination plants has declined. We offer the solutions from the leading manufacturers with some of the world’s most advanced thermal and membrane desalination plants. We can provide small to large cost-effective desalination solutions at the market. 

However, desalination is a very energy intensive process, often using energy supply from fossil fuel sources which are vulnerable to volatile global market prices as well as logistical supply problems in remote communities, high environmental impact due to CO2 emissions and are therefore not sustainable.

The use of renewable energy for desalination, particularly solar energy, is a viable alternative option to cope with deteriorating fossil fuel supplies and offers a sustainable solution for water scarcity. Solar energy has the capacity to make the desalination industry greener and reduce the impacts of environmental risks of intake systems and outfall systems in desalination that pose a significant threat to the environment.

We consider the different technology choices for desalination and advise the implementation of fully “green” desalination system to achieve an energy-efficient and modular zero liquid discharge solution.
