CSMED - Robust Concentrated Solar Systems which distil pure water from otherwise unusable water sources or effluents to supply/supplement water where needed
This Solution aims to provide sustainable, cost-efficient, robust and simple to operate technology which cleans/distils wastewater and otherwise unusable, or contaminated water sources, to provide clean, pure and safe water for where there is need. Concentrated Solar Multi Effect Distillation & Dewatering Systems (CSMED) uses solar thermal energy to process water from a range of sources including, for example, agriculture, industry, mining or municipal wastewater, brackish bore and hyper-saline water (including salt lakes), seawater and even mine tailings dams. The clean and safe water can then be reused for agriculture, mining and industry, thus taking pressure off precious freshwater sources. In addition, it can also be used to supply or supplement safe drinking water where needed, made available for municipal and local business use or be released back into the natural landscape. Reclaiming, purifying and reusing water reduces risks of leaching and release of contaminated wastewater into soils, watercourses, groundwater and marine environments.
