WOG Technologies combats water shortages by deploying seawater, brackish water and wastewater desalination procedures.
A Substantial resource
Seawater accounts for 97% of the water on earth. Since almost 60% of the world's population lives less than 60 km from a maritime coast, seawater is poised to become one of the main alternative resources in those regions in the next several decades. In arid coastal regions, desalination can augment available water resources. It also has the advantage of reducing water dependency on other regions and eliminating the need to import and transport water over long distances
Reverse Osmosis is a proven technology for desalinating seawater, which contains almost 100 times more than the WHO-recommended amount of salt in water destined for human consumption.
Reverse osmosis membrane desalination, the water is fed under pressure through a membrane, which lets the water through but traps the salt.
WOG Technologies is working to optimize the performance of our clients' desalination processes, both in terms of their environmental impact and energy use
Type of water for desalinating
Proven Process offered by WOG Technologies including its Pre-treatment
During the past decade, membrane technologies have gained its momentum in the water treatment segment and are justifiably regarded as the technology of the future. This is easy to understand as they guarantee efficient and environment-friendly purification with a minimal use of chemicals. Moreover, ultrafiltration membranes have established a position in the drinking water sector due to the fact that they filter water to such an extent that it is virtually free of solids. Bacteria, parasites and viruses are not killed off, but entirely removed from the drinking water.
The technology and process involved are relatively simple, membranes representing very fine filters, which act like sieves through which water is either pressed or sucked. Any content, which is larger than the microscopic pores, is separated out and depending on the fineness of the filter, a differentiation is made between micro-, ultra- and nanofiltration. Reverse osmosis is an additional variation, in which only water molecules pass through the membrane.
WOG Technologies has been using this membrane process in combination with conventional cleaning processes for many years and due to this experience and in-house innovations, has built up a pool of comprehensive expertise. Company know-how
relates to an extensive knowledge of the performance and applications of the various membrane types and combinations
with other treatment phases to meet specific requirements on a case-to-case basis. WOG Technologies offers a diversity of membrane processes and selects the best and lowest-cost variation for each application.
