E-METS - An efficient hydrogen power plant for desalination, brine concentration, industrial wastewater treatment and materials recovery

The patented technology is an effective solution to some of the most challenging water treatment problems. It generates value in the energy-water-waste nexus by utilizing low grade waste heat for its robust and efficient thermal separation process.

The E-METS solution is invented through the implementation of innovative process engineering that revolves around state-of-the-art flow boiling/cooling technologies conventionally deployed in nuclear power plants. The E-METS concept is the first of its kind being invented and implemented for thermally driven water separation via evaporation/condensation.
