Recovering lithium in evaporation ponds can take a year or more and leaves behind lots of salt waste, but there are new technologies and processes that offer exciting options for lithium extraction.
Target & remove specific ions, avoid ZLD
Targeting specific ions for removal can be the most cost-efficient way to treat a wastewater flow. Saltworks has treatment and sensing solutions available to treat ions and other species, making water suitable for discharge or re-use.
& CAPITAL COSTS
Selective Removal of Ions
Is your wastewater challenge limited to one or two constituents of concern? It may be possible to target and remove specific contaminants, avoiding the need for more complex and expensive treatment.
Many wastewaters are more than 99% fit for discharge or re-use, but one or two contaminants prevent this. Saltworks’ IonSelect solutions target specific ions or contaminants of concern, removing them as a solid so you can discharge 99% of your wastewater volume and avoid brine management costs.
We pull from a variety of treatment methods, robust real-time sensors, and the expertise to know when and how to use them.
