Elemental Water Makers - Desalination system powered by renewable energy

Powered by the sunshine, the wind, the waves or any energy, this solution desalinises water through the reverse osmosis technology.

Elemental Water Makers provides turn-key project between 1 and 1000 m³/day. If an elevation is available, the systems can work 24/7. Actually, when the energy source is active (solar or wind), a part of the salt water is stored in the highest point. As a consequence, when the source is not available, the gravity makes the water fall and go through the reverse osmosis technology. Without elevation, batteries will support the renewable source to make clean water during the sunshine. Finally, if the system can be connected to the grid, drinkable water can be produced 24/7 even without elevation. For all the three cases, the Return On Investment is reached before 4 years.
