The largest impediment to further growth of the desalination market is the increasing demand for energy and growth in GHG emissions.
The market for desalination is huge and growing, estimated at over $18Billion in 2015 (www.Desaldata.com). The largest impediment to further growth of the market is the increasing demand for energy and growth in GHG emissions. The demand for water has been increasing at a rate that is double the rate of population growth. Taking this into account, by 2025 water scarcity will affect 14% of the world’s population.Total online installed capacity of desalination plants was more than 74 million m3/day at the end of 2012.
Due to the low pressure exerted across the membrane, the process of forward osmosis can be used to treat a broad spectrum of water types. Below are a few examples of possible applications for our technology.
Ground & surface water treatment
Specialty Chemical & Textile
Enhanced product recovery & concentration
Industrial wastewater reuse and recovery
Sea & Brackish water desalination
Osmotic power / Pressure Retarded Osmosis
Upstream oil & gas wastewater treatment
Water treatment, recovery and reuse for thermal power plants
Municipal Water & Waste
Pretreatment for desalination
Pretreatment for high TDS waters
Municipal wastewater treatment
