The availability of clean drinking water is fundamental to life on earth. With climate change and population growth, available sources of water are diminishing, so we must desalinate our seas and oceans to meet global needs. Today, industrial desalination produces 76 million tonnes of CO2 emissions each year and will contribute 5% of global carbon dioxide emissions by 2040. This means that we cannot hope to transition to a lower-carbon world without addressing the critical issue of water.
Desolenator is poised to disrupt the desalination industry by pioneering the field of sustainable desalination at scale. They have an elegant and cost-effective technology for transforming complex water types into potable water, but unlike traditional technologies, use no membranes, chemicals or polluting diesel. Instead, they harness the photons from the sun in combined thermal and electrical energy, in an integrated system design around optimized water purification. Desolenator is solving the water crisis for communities and businesses without harming the planet – something they like to call ‘Water Independence’.
