Desalitech ties up with Toyo for international market

Innovative reverse-osmosis (RO) developer Desalitech and Japan’s Toyo Engineering Corporation announced on 11 December 2013 the formation of a strategic partnership to introduce water and wastewater treatment solutions to Japanese, East Asian and international markets.

The collaboration will bring Closed Circuit Desalination (CCD) RO solutions to East Asian and other international markets to increase water recovery, improve energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact and reduce disposal costs.

Desalitech claims that its patented CCD systems are able to achieve recovery rates of 93% or greater, compared with 75% recovery or less with most conventional RO systems. Higher recovery produces less waste, resulting in lower disposal costs.

“Our goal is to reduce our customers’ water and energy footprint while increasing process reliability and flexibility,” said Toyo senior executive officer Kumar Akhilesh, Infrastructure Business Unit director. “This combination of better performance and greater environmental responsibility is important for Japanese and global markets.”
