Trevi’s FO process is a disruptive technology, which can help meet the world’s rapidly increasing demand for clean water using a small fraction of the energy needed for existing water purification systems. The technology is used in processes where water needs to be extracted from a liquid stream either to produce a purified water or a more concentrated main stream. The technology has application in a wide range of areas including desalination, waste water treatment and agricultural processing to name a few.
Trevis’ FO treatment technology utilises low – grade heat enabling co-generation, solar thermal or gas fired hot water sources.
Other benefits of the technology include:
- The system typically uses about 1/8th the amount of electrical power of traditional RO systems
- Brine streams can be concentrated to either very low or very high recovery rates without a noticeable change in electrical energy consumption, allowing the system to be tailored to the environmental requirements of the customer
- The system uses low pressure components reducing the cost of items such as piping and pumps
- Compatible with renewable energy sources including solar
