- Bore water desalination for mining and remote community water supplies
- Sea water desalination for remote community potable water
- Seawater desalination for town and city water requirements
Active and Abandoned Mine Drainage Water Treatment
Frac Water Treatment – first environmentally friendly end-to-end water treatment solution
A couple of large scale examples for where the CLLEEN™ system when used for water desalination, could literally save hundreds of millions of dollars, not to mention reduced energy costs and being much more environmentally friendly.
- Lonsdale, south of Adelaide’s seawater desalination plant is reported to have a total cost of $1.83billion, with the plant delivering up to 100 billion litres of water each year (100GL) – about half of Adelaide’s annual water supply.
The CLLEEN™ water desalination system can achieve the same outcome for a facility of this size, for less cost with more efficiency.
Ie 100 billion litres/yr would require 252 CLLEEN™ skids, plus controls and systems for a large water desalination plant, with the costs being in the vicinity of $600million. There would not be any grid electricity used and the brine disposal would be much less with resultant significantly reduced annual O&M costs.
- Similarly with the recent West Australian announcement of an expansion to the Binningup Water Desalination Plant to the tune of approx $500million, CLLEEN™ is in a position to be able to construct a 50 GL facility and transfer operations for under $300million.
A few more sobering facts:
- 20thCentury: Population increased 3-fold; Water use increased 6-fold
- 2.4 billion people live in water‐stressed countries
- 1 in 5 people do not have access to safe drinking water
- 1 in 4 people affected by water‐related illness.
Water, Climate Change and Community well‐being are interlinked. Some estimations
- 2025: 280 Million (India) & 381 million people (China) under absolute water scarcity
- 2050: Global Population of 9 Billion people
- 2050: India would have exhausted its water supplies
