Modern Water promotes forward osmosis

The presentation was given by Modern Water’s executive chairman, Neil McDougall and looked at how Modern Water’s forward osmosis technology can help the world’s most water stressed countries. The delegates heard how unlike traditional desalination, Modern Water’s forward osmosis process requires up to 40% less energy, produces a better quality of water with lower levels of contaminants, especially boron. Forward osmosis plants also have a far lower operational cost due to lower fouling of the membranes in the plant which therefore give the membranes a longer life as well as allowing the plant to continuously operate. Neil McDougall commented: “We are delighted that forward osmosis has been recognised as one of the hottest topics in the water industry and that Modern Water has been given the opportunity to present at this prestigious event in the City of London.”
