Parternship to provide high-efficiency water treatment to international markets

Sponsored by

BOSTON, MA, Dec. 23, 2013 -- A new parternship between Desalitech, a provider of high-efficiency water production and wastewater treatment solutions, and Toyo Engineering Corporation, a Japan-based provider of engineering and construction for industrial facilities, will introduce environmentally-responsible and highly-economical water and wastewater treatment solutions to East Asian and international markets.

The partnership agreement was signed in Tokyo, Japan as part of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick's Massachusetts-Asia Innovation Partnership Mission. Likewise, the collaboration between Desalitech and Toyo will bring Closed Circuit Desalination (CCD) reverse osmosis (RO) solutions to these markets to increase water recovery, improve energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and reduce disposal costs.

Industry is putting water resources under tremendous strain worldwide, driving the need for highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective water supply and wastewater treatment solutions. As such, Desalitech water treatment solutions provide efficient performance at low costs, reducing negative ecological impact and improving the productive and responsible use of natural resources.

Its CCD systems are able to achieve recovery rates of 93 percent or greater; higher recovery produces less waste, resulting in lower disposal costs. Desalitech CCD solutions also require low energy, reducing carbon footprint. Further, CCD systems are capable of extracting purified water from challenging sources and adjusting to highly variable water conditions, making them ideal for industrial water and effluent treatment, agricultural water supply and inland brackish desalination.
