More water: less energy/waste/space/chemicals/maintenance/etc...Harmony Desalting is making brine concentration more affordable & sustainable with membrane processes. Since 2014, researchers at MIT and elsewhere have been working on the ultimate separation technology: batch desalting. The thermodynamics indicates that a batch process is the most energy-efficient approach. Rapid salinity cycling means reduced risk of membrane fouling and less need for chemical dosing. And since our patented process uses standard desalination equipment, it’s readily scalable. We’ve shown that it works, so now we’re taking it out of the lab and into the field.
