WaterTectonics Selected by the US DOE and NAWI to Pilot Breakthrough Technology

The U.S. Department of Energy and the The National Alliance for Water Innovation in collaboration with the California Department of Water Resources, announced the selection of 11 projects for negotiation that will pilot breakthrough technologies and systems that will allow for more reliable and affordable freshwater supplies for the United States. The projects will also contribute to the decarbonization of the water and wastewater sectors through investments in technologies that enhance the efficient use of energy in the use, treatment, and distribution of water.

WaterTectonics is proud to be a collaborator on the pilot project:

Mobile Test Bed for Marginal Water Filtration
Water pre-treatment (before desalination) remains a critical process step for maximizing water production and lowering desalination cost. Current pre-treatment technologies are large, slow, and multi-step, making them suitable for large desalination projects but clumsy and less effective for small-scale systems. This project will integrate a novel high-performance nanofiltration membrane system as pretreatment alongside two variants of electrocoagulation as a high-efficiency, all-electric pretreatment strategy. The mobile testbed developed by this team will travel to several sites around Albuquerque, New Mexico, evaluating high-efficiency desalination of different non-traditional water sources.
