Clemson University desalination collaboration signed
24 May 10 by desalination
Water Enabled Technologies LLC (WET) of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina, USA, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate in a joint research effort to develop existing and future products in the field of water desalination.
WET has announced a new process for desalination, but has given no details at all about the technology. It claims that this new technology, Modular Desalination Unit, will provide fresh water at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies, which means a fraction of the energy currently required, and at a fraction of the current capital costs for the infrastructure.
Dr Jim Kaiser, chief scientist for WET, said, “This agreement with Clemson is historic for all concerned, for between our company and this internationally recognized university, we are giving birth to a technology that will have an effect on all of mankind.”
