Desalination Market

The Problems We Solve

Reverse osmosis (RO), the state-of-the-art technology for seawater desalination, performs well over extended periods so long as the feedwater is largely free of suspended solids and low in dissolved organics. However, existing pre-treatment technologies supplying RO systems struggle when exposed to high levels of dissolved organics, harmful algae blooms, and other sudden and variable influxes of suspended solids. When this material passes the pre-treatment system RO fouling increases drastically, reducing plant capacity, increasing cleaning cycles and chemical consumption and causing premature RO membrane failure.

For developers, owners and operators, these problems result in:

  •     Reduced plant utilization, which severely impacts plant economics;
  •     Elevated risks of operational disruptions; and
  •     Higher treatment costs


Nanostone Water’s Value Proposition

Nanostone Water’s ceramic desalination pretreatment system removes harmful algal blooms, suspended solids and high levels of dissolved organics from seawater with high reliability, enabling RO desalination systems to operate to rated capacity and planned costs over an extended life. Our single-step solution also eliminates multiple pretreatment processes, reducing capital expense and footprint.

Markets We Serve

We are working with leading developers, owners and operators of large seawater desalination plants to integrate our solutions into greenfield desalination plants and also to retrofit our solutions into under-performing plants currently in operation.
