The increase in the world population coupled with man's influence upon the global climate has resulted in limited availability of fresh water for consumption, agricultural use, etc..  Thus, it has become critical to find economically and environmentally-sustainable approaches to generate additional sources of potable water. 













As this graphic demonstrates, only 3.5% of the water on Earth is freshwater. To sustain the planet, we need to find economical ways to utilize the vast resources of salt water for drinking and irragation.   Our approach is to target specific areas, initially within North America, that combine optimum conditions for solar energy generation at utility scale with access to significant quantities of salt water that may be converted to potable sources.


Our patent-pending process uses a unique combination of existing desalination technologies to produce significant quantities of fresh water from sea water.  In particular, the apparatus and process use both reverse osmosis and thermal evaporation systems in a tandem process to convert a much higher fraction of seawater to potable water than either alone.  Also, the remaining brine is then converted to solid material through additional evaporation systems (such as evaporation ponds) to produce sea salt for consumption and other materials that may be used in multiple industries.  Finally, the entire array, including the transport of the sea water to the facility and subsequently, to the end use area is powered by renewable solar energy.    In this way, the carbon footprint and other environmental impacts are completely mitigated.
