Environment

AquaOmnes is a great lever to reduce the environmental footprint along 3 axis: energy, water and waste.

 

Energy:

The thermodynamic energy needed to extract salts out of saline water is much lower than what is needed to push water through a membrane or to evaporate it, the methods conventionally used today. This is because displacing minimal mass allows for minimal energy consumption.

AquaOmnes® desalts water with no membrane and no evaporation, which enables huge energy savings. This leads to the opportunity to create a renewable desalination solution.

  • AquaOmnes® low energy requirement means that it can be powered by renewable energy sources such as solar and geothermal energy
  • In fact, the Masdar pilot project is being designed in conjunction with solar energy to create an efficient and renewable desalination solution.

 

It is to be noted that with AquaOmnes, the energy consumption is linearly dependent upon the amount of salt extracted and thus cancels the exponential energy increase observed for RO and distillation technologies with increased salinity.

Water:

Since scaling can be avoided, high water conversion rates can be achieved. This means that maximum amount of fresh water can be obtained and feed water is valorised at its maximum level.

Waste:

This high water conversion rate also means that brines can be concentrated to levels approaching saturation, greatly reducing the amount of residual water. Increased concentration is particularly useful ahead of ZLD units or salts valorization industrial process. This AquaOmnes can turn waste into products including water, species etc.
