What makes GreenBlu’s technology different?

ZLD + Separated Salts

Zero liquid discharge brine elimination at any salinity with recovery of high-value, separated, pure, solids (salt, fertilizers, metals)

Cost-effective

Low levelized cost of separation with low OpEx and CapEx. Modular, containerized product scales to high throughput but keeps piloting and early units highly affordable

Powered by heat

Sustainable, zero emission solar and waste heat costs much less than electricity. Both electric and water grid independent

Automated maintenance

Automated, chemical-free maintenance reduces labor and material costs. Solids recovery does not require chemicals. No membranes to replace and permanent adsorbent contacts only pure water vapor

GreenBlu wins Solar Desalination Challenge Prize

GreenBlu wins American-Made Solar Desalination Challenge Innovation Round

The Solar Desalination Prize is a four-phase prize competition that will advance thermal desalination technologies to expand the utilization of non-traditional water sources, ensure water security, and improve the resilience of U.S. infrastructure. Out of 162 applicants, 19 quarterfinalists from 12 states were selected to advance to the second phase of the competition. They were announced on October 19, 2020.

Zero Liquid Discharge & Recovery of separated minerals

GreenBlu’s ZLD crystallizer uses physical separation to recover food-grade salt, fertilizer and magnesium from seawater and desalination brine. Brine mining of valuable metals is also possible with specialty brines.
Cost-effective, sustainable ZLD

Cost-effective, sustainable ZLD

Zero Liquid Discharge at dramatically reduced costs. High-value separated salts make desalination without brine discharge viable.
Brine Mining

Brine Mining

Sustainable food-grade salt, fertilizers, chemicals, and magnesium from desalination brines. Mineral mining from specialty brines .
Concentrate and desiccate

Concentrate and desiccate

Remove water from biofuel, biochemical, and food feedstocks at low temperatures

Desalination waste brine disposal and high TDS wastewaters

GreenBlu’s technology separates any TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) brine into pure, valuable components
