While there is plenty of water in the world, good-quality drinking water can be scarce. MemPower employs membrane distillation using solar or residual heat to produce very pure water.
This new technology does not need electricity but generates it instead, so clean drinking water and electricity are produced from saltwater at the same time.
Wageningen University & Research is looking for partners to further develop and market this promising innovation, which won the MBR Global Water Award in 2017.
