Using WAVE software to design the perfect water treatment system
The large amount of agriculture and dairy farming in Chino, California, USA has left the area’s groundwater heavily saturated with nitrates and unsafe for consumption. When the Chino Basin Desalter Authority wanted to implement a water treatment solution targeted around rejecting nitrates, the ideal reserve osmosis filtration system required very exact specifications across a multitude of dimensions.
Watch the video the learn how our WAVE design software helped the team select an ideal system, delivering millions of gallons of water to surrounding communities and institutions while maintaining low-energy consumption.
In 2020, DuPont Water Solutions entered into a collaboration with Waterise, an energy company that aims to provide solutions to the global water shortage. The collaboration aims to provide seawater reverse osmosis membranes—which purify water—and expertise to the company’s sub-sea desalination plants.
The 2,000 residents of Serdo experience water insecurity daily, needing to travel 1.5 kilometers (about a mile) to retrieve potable water. The community bored a well to find groundwater, but was devastated to learn that the water was dangerously hot, and heavily contaminated with salts and fluoride.
In 2020, our OxyMem company was named the “Breakthrough Technology Company of the Year” by the Global Water Awards for its innovative Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) technology.
