 Project objective

In order to meet the rising water demand required by an expanding population, which has already crossed the 7 billion mark and is expected to reach 8,5 billion by 2030, and 9,7 billion in 2050 , desalination of seawater is envisaged as a solution to provide a portion of the shortfall to fill the gap between supply and demand. Desalination becomes in many parts of the world, and also in Europe, a promising option to combat water stress. Nonetheless, desalination plants generate huge volumes of concentrates, also known as brines, which represent a potential hazard for marine ecosystems. Brines form a very dense hypersaline plume (heavier than normal seawater) that spreads over large areas affecting marine ecosystems, especially to seagrass meadows which are one of the most ecologically important ecosystems in coastal areas. ECOS has developed VENTURI a diffuser solution, with a capacity of minimizing in a 99% the environmental impact associated to brines discharges due to a potential dilution capacity 131% higher than conventional diffusers. Thus, VENTURI represents a technological leap towards tackling one of the most robust environmental barriers that are holding the full deployment of desalination plants.

ECOS requests funding to elaborate a feasibility study to define market uptake at National, European and International level. The most important markets identified are the Mediterranean region (EU and non-EU countries), the Middle East, the US and other countries such as India and China.
