"If we could ever competitively, at a cheap rate, get fresh water from saltwater,.... (this) would be in the long range interests of humanity which would really dwarf any other scientific accomplishment." - JFK
The most important thing about our process isn't what it does. It is what it doesn't do. There is no harmful discharge to kill marine life. In fact, it enhances the water quality around itself and attracts marine life.
We have invented, and been granted 2 US Patents, for a new method to desalinate seawater that is so low in cost * it is price- competitive with common groundwater sources.
We have completed lab tests on another species of a halophytic plant, other than red mangrove. The tests were EXTREMELY successful and they allow us to reduce the cost of building the desalination process equipment by a
factor of 5.
