GreenBlu’s patented Vapor Adsorption Distillation with Energy Recycling technology is the only adsorption distillation method that recycles all three forms of heat: latent, sensible, and adsorption.
- The efficient reuse of heat energy triples energy efficiency compared to current methods without using electricity, chemicals, or membranes.
- Our technique solves the top brine temperature limit, a longstanding issue that has limited the efficiency of thermally distilling seawater.
- The recycling of the heat of adsorption is made possible with our patented nanocomposite adsorbent with high thermal conductivity and low cost.
- Our containerized products will yield high areal water production at low costs and enable renewable zero liquid discharge desalination.
- Our method opens new possibilities for ZLD (zero liquid discharge) wastewater treatment, recovery of minerals, and elimination of desalination brine waste.
- With increasing clean water scarcity around the world, solar and waste heat represents a vast, underutilized, and low-cost energy source that should be used to make clean water.
- We cannot solve the global water crisis through desalination using renewable electricity because the water deficit is growing faster than we can build renewable electricity generation (2030 Water Resources Group. EIA Intl. Energy Outlook 2017).
- Magnesium is 34% lighter than aluminum and 75% lighter than steel. Demand is increasing to improve transportation efficiency, but without terrestrial deposits in the US, it can only be recovered from seawater and salt lakes. GreenBlu's technology can enable the production of water, magnesium, and salt from seawater without the drawbacks of carbon emissions, waste brine, and high cost.
