Saltworks Presents at the 2009 Desalination World Congress
One of the most significant presentations at the International Desalination Association (IDA) World Congress was the novel Thermo-Ionic™ technology presented by Saltworks Technologies.
The conference, held in Dubai from November 7 to 12, was the world’s most important event in desalination and water technology. It featured presentations, lectures, and an exhibition showcasing the latest equipment and technology from 70 participating companies in over 21 countries.
Saltworks’ CEO Ben Sparrow and President Joshua Zoshi successfully presented and demonstrated their novel technology during the conference using a portable desalination unit. The device showed how the innovative technology, made largely from plastics, uses salt to drive the desalination process and yield considerable energy savings.
“We were thrilled to attend and present at the IDA congress. It was an excellent opportunity to meet industry veterans as well as demonstrate Saltworks’ technology first hand,” said Ben Sparrow, co-founder and CEO.
With Saltworks now on the global stage for its proven energy efficient technology, the team is positioned to commercialize its product by showcasing its demonstration plant and test facility.
Saltworks’ outfitted 1,000 litre a-day seawater pilot plant will soon be fully operational at a harbour location in Vancouver, Canada. The company is now looking for initial small scale demonstration projects in key markets.
