Membrane distillation

Membrane distillation based on the Memstill® concept is a worldwide patented technology for desalinating water.

The Memstill® technology combines water evaporation and condensation in a single membrane module.
 

POTENTIAL OF THE MEMSTILL® TECHNOLOGY:
  • low energy consumption
  • suitable for low-grade energy, solar cells, etc.
  • simple construction, based on prefabricated modules
  • lower cost price than existing technology

APPLICATIONS:

  • Large-scale production of drinking-water from seawater
  • Co-generation of electricity and water
  • Concentration of brine, reprocessing brackish water
  • Production of fresh water for ships and offshore industry
  • Production of ultra pure water, boiler supply water, etc.
  • Treatment of waste water

A consortium consisting of nine parties is developing this technology from the process concept until pilot installations.
