The company will use the Massachusetts location as its base to expand in the US industrial water treatment market.
“Ever-increasing water stress, increased discharge restrictions and increasing water and power costs are some of the industry's most difficult and important challenges. Desalitech’s solutions improve environmental sustainability while reducing costs,” said Nadav Efraty , Desalitech CEO. “We are proud to join Massachusetts’s emerging water cluster.”
Desalitech’s Closed Circuit Desalination (CCD) reverse osmosis process maximises permeate recovery, reducing brine waste and feedwater supply requirements, while lowering energy consumption and increasing the flexibility and reliability of operations. Desalitech has been granted more than 75 patents on the technology. Commercial CCD installations have run continuously since early 2009.
