GLOBAL ACCESS TO FRESH WATER, NO ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.
EFD patented a globally significant desalination system that eliminates environmentally toxic brine, the byproduct of existing desalination technologies today. EFD is poised to alleviate one of the greatest threats to the planet – the increasingly rapid depletion of fresh, safe and usable water to sustain life.
Our disruptive technology will revolutionize how water is produced and used in desalination plants, industry, agriculture, and water management. EFD technology creates the opportunity for global sustainable access to affordable fresh water without damaging our environment or ocean’s ecosystems.
Over 17,000 desalination plants in 150 countries use desalination to remove salt from ocean water for drinkable water which creates a high salinity water byproduct called brine. Brine causes environmental damage and is a byproduct of desalination plants, agricultural runoff, industrial processes, oil production and sewage processing. Brine disposal most often is released into the ocean killing marine life and creating ocean “dead zones.”
EFD’s patented desalination technology eliminates brine and converts ocean water or brackish water on a utility scale into fresh water and dry salt. EFD’s technology can be sized to fit specific industry needs and be built either as a mobile unit, a utility scale desalination plant or a retrofit of an existing desalination plant to eliminate brine. Mobile units can be sized to process 1,000 to 200,000 gallons of water per day. Utility scale plants can be sized to process 5 million to over 100 million gallons per day.
EFD technology market applications go beyond ocean water desalination as a brine disposal solution for many industries. Brine is a global problem in industries such as agriculture, manufacturing, oil and gas production, mining and sewage processing. Increased global demand for clean water combined with rainwater uncertainty, drought and climate change has created a thriving water reuse market. EFD is positioned as the only mobile and utility scale solution that eliminates brine in all these markets.
