Industrial Wastewater Desalination

Desalinate industrial wastewaters to meet discharge limits, improve water recovery and reduce brine volume. 

Saltworks offers solutions for salinity reduction, desalination, reuse and brine volume reduction.


Turbocharge your Reverse Osmosis system with our Flex EDR or target specific ions for removal using Flex EDR’s permselective IonFlux ion exchange membranes. Achieve zero liquid discharge with our SaltMaker MultiEffect Crystallizer.

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 volume reduction
  • 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

Our Technologies

  • Produce freshwater and solids
  • True zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Modular design
  • Fully automated and self-cleaning
  • Open to atmosphere lower cost, higher capacity, evaporator including solids capability

  • Pair with low cost thermal energy
  • Actively manage volatile risks

Xtreme Reverse Osmosis device Saltworks Technologies
  • Technology advancements in reverse osmosis are enabling its second generation application to challenging waters.
  • XtremeRO enables this second generation with: scale and organic management, new membrane products, and advanced process controls that can treat organic laden waters and concentrate brines up to 130,000 mg/L.

  • Produce freshwater for reuse
  • Meet discharge requirements
  • Improve performance of existing RO plants
  • Replace chemical softening
  • Extreme recoveries on previously scale limited waters
