The world’s need for clean water is intensifying, driven by population growth, industrialization, rapid urbanization, and climate change. According to United Nations estimates, global demand for water will surge 30% by 2050. Even today, nearly 2 billion people experience extreme water stress year-round.
These trends make desalinating water increasingly vital to quench global thirst. As the industry leader in energy recovery devices (ERDs), we’re actively deploying highly efficient, scalable solutions for recovering otherwise wasted energy in the seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination process. With more than 20,000 of our ERDs installed worldwide, our water products annually save customers $2 billion (USD) in energy expenses and eliminate more than 11.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. We’re proud to do our part to decrease the costs and carbon emissions associated with the production of clean water, helping to increase access to this vital resource for millions across the globe.
