Desalination and Dry Salt Production
North Highlands, California
Lack of adequate clean water for drinking and agriculture is one of the most important challenges facing the world today. This growing crisis is fueled by drought, pollution and population growth. Effluent Free Desalination Corp (EFD) has the patented solution to the problem.
While there is plenty of water, most of it is salty seawater. Even in inland areas, the water is often unusable due to salt or pollution. The main technology used today for desalination, known as Reverse Osmosis (RO), produces the unfortunate by-product of toxic concentrated brine. In coastal areas, where existing desalination facilities are dumping
concentrated brine back in the ocean, there are major public and regulatory objections to the RO technology. In inland areas, there is no environmentally acceptable way to dispose of the toxic brine.
EFD has a unique patented solution which produces no brine and eliminates major environmental objections. EFD’s technology is the combination of two well-known and well-understood technologies. It produces distilled water and dry salt. The process is effective for both high volume production of fresh water and for the cleansing of dirty water from agricultural runoff and industrial waste.
It can even eliminate the concentrated toxic brine from existing desalination plants. The sale of both the water and the salt makes EFD’s technology much more profitable than other desalination methods.
The combination of the worldwide need for clean water and EFD’s patented technology creates an enormous opportunity to make a difference in the world environmentally and to make a substantial return on investment for investors.
They have a corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility near Sacramento, California, where they are building a mobile demonstration machine. EFD plans to complete the machine in late 2015 and hold a major launch event in early 2016.
