Desalinate industrial wastewaters to meet discharge limits, recover and reuse water, and reduce brine volume and disposal costs.

If you have a saline wastewater requiring treatment, we can help. Saltworks offers solutions for salinity reduction/desalination, reuse, and volume reduction.

Extreme recovery membrane systems to remove total dissolved solids (TDS), target specific ions of concern with our selective ion exchange membranes (IonFlux) and achieve true and zero liquid discharge (trueZLD) with our SaltMaker. Contact us to have your project assessed for free, reviewing a suite of options to maximize freshwater recovery, replace chemical softening, and minimize wastewater disposal and costs.

Solutions for:

  • Industrial wastewater desalination
  • Salinity or TDS reduction
  • Selective ion removal (i.e. remove chlorides, sodium, ammonia, and others)
  • Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO) brine/reject
  • Water reuse

Benefit from:

  • Increased reuse
  • Meet discharge limits
  • Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Turbocharge RO recovery (brine volume reduction) while reducing fouling potential
  • Replace chemical pre-treatment (i.e. lime softening)
  • Reduce waste volume, reduce trucking, reduce disposal bills
  • Mobile pilot plants available
