Into the Future

When people find out I am involved with the water treatment industry, there is one topic that almost always comes up: the ongoing drought in California and other states, and what is being done about it.

Success in the Maldives

In February, government officials from the Republic of Maldives joined representatives from the Aquiva Foundation, memsys, Aquaver and the local power company, Stelco, for the official commissioning of a desalination facility on the island of Gulhi that will bring a sustainable and reliable supply of drinking water to its residents.

Maldives Desalination Facility Records Net Energy Gain

Operating data from memsys technology shows positive desalination with net energy production

Operating data from an installation of seawater desalination units that employ memsys’ membrane distillation technology indicates a significant net gain in energy production from the diesel generators that power the system. memsys, a Singaporean-German company, pioneered the technology, which is based on vacuum multi-effect membrane distillation (V-MEMD), a highly efficient thermal process for thermal separations in a modular concept.

Alternative Energy for Reliable RO

Tiny Utrik Atoll is part of the Marshall Islands, a scattered group of atolls in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. On Utrik and neighboring islands, rain catchment traditionally supplied all of the drinking water, while well water was used for washing. Over the past decade, however, rainfall has become unreliable, and during the dry seasons Utrik islanders were forced to drink well water with unsafe salinity levels.

Desalination Plant Relieves Drought-Stricken Marshall Islands

RO desalination systems provide sustainable water production for residents in remote regions

On Utrik, a remote atoll in the Marshall Islands, the region's first permanent solar- and wind-powered water desalination plant is staving off the effects of a yearlong region-wide drought.

In May 2010, Tom Vance of Moana Marine LLC installed two Spectra LB-1800 reverse osmosis (RO) desalination systems, which convert seawater into 3,600 gal per day of clean, fresh, U.S. EPA-approved drinking water. Without the water from the desalination systems, life would be impossible for Utrik's 485 residents.
