Titre : PLASTIC EVAPORATOR Production of drinking water from the sea using small mechanical recompression vapour units coupled with a new compact plastic evaporator

Région : Global

Code du projet : EVK1-CT-2000-30002

Durée : From 2001-02-01 to 2003-03-31

Descriptif
The objective of the project is the design and demonstration of small units of desalination (10 to 100 tons/day), made of polymer, using the thermal process called Mechanical Vapour Compression, thanks to innovative compressor. These plastic units will enable to overcome the malfunctions of the present technologies and meet the growing needs of water supply. The impact will be notably ; suppression of corrosion and fouling problems, improved yield, maintenance facilitated and less frequent, cost effectiveness. Moreover, we will also study the possible use of the evaporator with renewable energy, solar and geothermal principally. If the preliminary results are encouraging, this application will also be studied on-site.
The objective we have defined is to develop a range of desalting products, which would enter the market of the small units able to fulfil the needs of 30 to 300 persons. This type of small units is really suitable for numerous target-market. More specifically we target the hot and arid European region, which have an increasing tourist development. The natural resources of these kind of sparsely populated regions are not enough to provide for the needs of two or three times more inhabitants during the summer season. Thus the environmental effects such as draining and the pollution of the tables water appear early. We intend in this region our system for small local communities and tourist centres.
